St. Louis jailers fired for excessive force

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) Authorities say that seven corrections officers at St. Louis’ workhouse jail have been fired for retaliating against an inmate who assaulted a corrections officer in a separate incident.

The employee was not seriously hurt, but at some point after the assault the seven jailers beat the inmate in a suspected act of revenge.

The jailers were fired in April.

Police chief Sam Dotson says the department investigated the case and referred to the prosecuting attorney’s office, but prosecutors declined to file charges against the corrections officers.
