Does the taped beating suffered by a fleeing suspect at the hands of several pursuing Maplewood police officers and a single City officer support the conclusion that the City of St. Louis - but not Maplewood nor any other local police jurisdiction - needs a civilian review board for its police department.
Not on the face of it.
I already support a civilian review board for the City, but I am hard pressed to explain a recent KMOV (Channel 4) story that mentioned a review board for the City, but failed to mention the need in any other police jurisdiction.
