Pine Lawn Protests After Federal Report About Ferguson
PINE LAWN, Mo. (AP) — A day after a federal report demanded changes in policing and courts in Ferguson, a group of protesters pressed for similar reforms in a nearby St. Louis suburb. Keying on a Justice Department report Wednesday that found Ferguson's justice system unfairly treated backs, 19 protesters insisted the same was true in largely black, 3,200-resident Pine Lawn. Using bullhorns, they disrupted access to the suburb's municipal court for an hour last night.
