“Today’s indictment is an important step in addressing the culture that has allowed the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department to consistently behave in an unconstitutional manner. While these officers have been indicted for illegally abusing an undercover officer they mistook for a protestor, there has still been no real accountability for the individual officers who engaged in the same behavior toward protestors. St. Louis officials must address this rampant lawlessness by its police.”
