One Policy Suggestion Re: Ferguson 187

The St. Louis County Police Department should be suppressed and disbanded as a Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organization. Its only substantive activities are the operation of large-scale protection rackets and theft schemes across St. Louis County, Missouri.

In the spirit of mercy, lengthy prison sentences for organized criminal activity and violations of US Code, Title 18, Sections 241 and 242, should probably only be imposed on the top police leadership and on St. Louis County prosecutor Robert P. McCulloch and a few of his mob lieutenants. Other SLCPD employees could be left unmolested, perhaps excepting lifetime bans on working in law enforcement or government in Missouri.

Ditching the completely unaccountable county police department and returning to an elected sheriff/deputy system certainly wouldn't fix all the problems in St. Louis County but that, along with institution of a civilian police review board with the power to investigate, issue subpoenas pursuant to investigations, and refer cases of alleged police abuse to grand juries, would be a start.
