Kansas City group considers monitor for police shootings
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A Kansas City social justice group is working to form an independent monitor to investigate fatal police shootings in the city.
The Kansas City Star reports that the group, More2 (More squared), discussed the possibility of a citizens review board Monday that would investigate fatal police-involved shootings, but it hasn't decided how that board would be formed.
Kiku Brooks, co-chairwoman of the crime and justice task force for the group, says members want to make sure the citizens of Kansas City are treated fairly.
Brooks says recent fatal shootings of black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota have renewed the urgency for forming an independent monitor.
