Now Gardner is trying to say the list was made by the SLPD, chief said not so fast, and called her out on it. I'll believe the chief considering there are several officers on the list no longer with the department, and she's doing what she's always done when caught pulling something like this...blame someone else.
“No leaders from our Department asked the Circuit Attorney’s Office to compile an Exclusion list, nor do we have any need for such a list,” Hayden said in a brief emailed statement about the action by Kim Gardner.
“I was quite surprised to have received it.”
Gardner said Hayden’s command staff was aware of her office’s concerns about the credibility of some members of the city’s police force. Gardner said there were “documented communications” between one of her top staff members and police Maj. Michael Sack, the department’s commander of professional standards, about the concerns.
“In fact, Major Sack has even expressed his appreciation to us for helping to hold his ‘guys accountable,’” Gardner’s statement Saturday said.
Knowing Gardner I'd like to see what precincts the officers on the list patrol.
Sorry, police commissioner called her out, not the chief.
Yah except this this
And also an article that she got money from a Super pac funded by Soros..... just cant make this stuff up Soros money
...anyone reviewed the evidence that she used to make her decision in terms of the court documents to see how these lies or these wrongful statements were embedded......in what context and to what ends.
The police officer is a citizen too ...
We cannot take a fundamental principle of the Constitution and turn it against a citizen. Do that to any citizen (even a police officer) and you erode those rights for everyone else.

Yea just because i understand that a prosecutor has they power to take the actions outlined in the op does not mean i do not understand that what you posted has merit too but it just does not tie into the op well. It would take someone with knowledge of those particular officers to make any type of a case against her actions.
If she is dirty then surely someone will be able to tie all of this together.
There's been a trend lately of being anti-police. It's been a trend at least since Obama was POTUS. Soros money is dirty money always. He must be the most evil man on the planet. He is on a mission to destroy US National Sovereignty and stability. While that alone may not mean anything....it is still suspect. I'm looking at the trail of articles on this woman.
Here's another one listing a criminal complaint against her kmox.radio.com...
But of course they could really all be bad cops

It saddens me to see dirty cops.
The questions should be, ARE they really dirty...
And why are they even on the force if they have been proven to be dirty? What fool is allowing that to happen?
PLUS, If this is about failed prosecutions, why did the DA think they had a case and indict the 'victims' the LEO's called perps?
Truly we need something more than a SJW Soro's political hack deciding things IMO.
What are the facts. other than taking the 5th that we have? All I see are cases she claims that the LEOs where the reason the state failed to successfully prosecute which does fall on the DA accepting the case.
Bodi do you have more than the lost cases and claims by the DA (that Soro's owns) that don't add up at this point for some of us?
...cases linked to officers on the list had already been dismissed in state court. He said the full group is linked to “dozens if not hundreds of cases.”
Why would the LEO's not be stopped from working if the DA thinks they are dirty?
Both sides look shady in this deal.
Basically you have criminals leading the rest of the area around by the nose because of that ever dreadful race card they keep playing.
Both payouts were among the largest of 44 settlements by St. Louis police that total $4.7 million since 2010, according to a review of the cases by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The settlements include cases that allege injuries or wrongful imprisonment or death.
Unlike trial judgments, such as the $2.5 million awarded in March to a man who was exonerated after spending five years in prison in a case that involved two former St. Louis police officers, the settlement amounts have never previously been made public. The Missouri Attorney General’s Office, which represented the police in civil cases until 2013, released a spreadsheet of the payout amounts in response to a public-records request from the Post-Dispatch.

Kim Gardner can be looked at two ways, she is either the most wonderful law abiding PA that ever existed or she is a SJW that seeks self aggrandizement.
The racism is on her end. I would be more than willing to believe that all of the officers put on this "short leash" are white. Probably one token black in there as well.
One of the biggest issues that Saint Louis city faces is crime (not the whole metro, just Saint Louis city and at that mainly Just North Saint Louis city and some of the suburbs that border it).
For many years Saint Louis politicians (decades now) have tried to pretend that the crime isn't as bad as it seems mainly because they are all afraid to step up and admit that 90 percent of it is young black males that got to the position after generation after generation of social handouts and wooing that basically destroyed the black family.
No accountability, no change. No change, no hope.
Unfortunately, given the St. Louis area's policing for profit, that really doesn't mean much. For example, are 90% of those "crimes" simple violations like jaywalking that were turned into warrants due to shenanigans at the courthouse that only threaten the city's coffers? Or are they real crimes that threaten the people?

Thank you for the links. Especially the demographic maps. I want to look at those a little closer and think about it. Another poster mentioned the racial disparity between police officers and the residents. I need to think about all this and put it in some kind of context for myself before I can really comment intelligently -- or even have an opinion!
