The Injustice System: Cops, Courts & Greedy Politicians

The Injustice System: Cops, Courts & Greedy Politicians

Craig Cheatham of KMOV presented The Injustice System Wednesday night at an event hosted by Better Together Saint Louis. The documentary stitches together Cheatham’s reporting on the dysfunctional system of policing, municipal courts, and fragmented municipal government brought to the forefront after the death of Michael Brown last August.

After the viewing, a panel consisting of Cheatham, Sen. Eric Schmitt, Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, former St. Louis County Police Department Chief Tim Fitch, former St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Chief Dan Isom, and Thomas Harvey of Arch City Defenders discussed the film, the impact of Senate Bill 5 passed this year, policing, and where we go from here.
