our Coalition part says NO on Prop 1. Read more.
Included in the #Prop1 bond proposal is allocation of an unspecified amount of dollars to the construction and equipping of a new #SWAT headquarters. Rather than building a new headquarters, St. Louis needs to significantly and immediately reduce SWAT. It’s original intention was to only be used in hostage and active shooter situations.
While activists push continuously for functional air conditioning at the workhouse this mustn’t be interpreted as a reason for the city to turn around and say, “We’ve got AC so we’re keeping it open.” We need to close the workhouse and end cash bail.
