Missouri cops charged with letting dog bite black man
WOODSON TERRACE, Mo. (AP) – Racial injustice activists in the St. Louis area called for the dismissal and prosecution of three white police officers on Friday after a cellphone video showed them on the train allowing a police dog to repeatedly bite a black man during an arrest.
St. Louis County District Attorney Wesley Bell said he was investigating the Woodson Terrace incident Monday, but declined to comment further. Police declined to comment, except for a press release posted on Facebook.
