Police protesters to meet with St. Louis mayor
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A group of young protesters who stormed St. Louis City Hall earlier this week as part of the Ferguson October effort against police killings say Mayor Francis Slay has agreed to meet and discuss their demands.
Leaders of the group Young Activists United said Wednesday they plan to speak with Slay on Thursday afternoon at City Hall. The group had asked Slay, who was not in the building during the Monday protest, to respond to its request within 48 hours.
The group is asking the mayor to require all city officers to wear body cameras, to create a civilian review board for police, and implement mandatory independent investigations of fatal shootings involving police.
Some of those demands are already being considered.
