Board of Alderman President Lewis Reed explains police reform bill in the City of St. Louis

By 97.1 FM Talk

Board of Alderman President Lewis Reed joins our #Bottomline segment to discuss recent attempts to reform law enforcement in the City of St. Louis.

Reed explains the proposed legislation specifically addresses the following:

  • Banning chokeholds
  • De-escalation tactics
  • Duty to intervene
  • Reporting anytime a weapon is drawn

“The focus should be on having a well-functioning police department,” says Reed. He and Marc find a ton of common ground on the issue; both agreeing that you can’t take guns away from police officers and expect them to protect citizens against armed criminals.
