Protesters March On Pine Lawn Muni Court

CBS St. Louis

PINE LAWN, Mo. (AP) — A day after a federal report demanded changes in policing and courts in Ferguson, a group of protesters pressed for similar reforms in a nearby St. Louis suburb.

Keying on a Justice Department report Wednesday that found Ferguson’s justice system unfairly treated backs, 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 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.
