Pine Lawn protesters press for changes in policing, courts

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) A day after a federal report demanded changes in policing and courts in Ferguson, a group of protesters pressed for similar reforms in nearby Pine Lawn.

Keying on a Justice Department report that found Ferguson’s justice system unfairly treated African- American, 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 about an hour Thursday night.

One protester, Roslyn Brown, says she and other local activists in October asked the Justice Department to also probe Pine Lawn’s municipal court. She says she hopes that happens.
