“St. Louis, MO– A bill to create a seven-member civilian oversight board for the St. Louis Police Department is looking like a sure bet to pass next month. The majority of the Board of Aldermen and even Mayor Francis are attaching their names to it.

Roorda announced that St. Louis police officers will quit the department or do only the bare minimum on patrol if the city creates the proposed civilian oversight board.

“They’d answer their calls when they got them, but as far as interrupting criminal behavior on their own, why in the world would they do that when their employers aren’t even supporting them?” Roorda said, he continued on to say that “nobody wants to be the next Darren Wilson.”

Well, Jeff Roorda, nobody wants to be the next Mike Brown either.”
