It's in relation to allegations against a lieutenant of racial profiling near a South County shopping center and Walmart, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allegations of racial profiling near a South County shopping center and Walmart have landed one lieutenant with the St. Louis County Police Department on paid administrative leave, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch first reported earlier this month. Now, the Missouri NAACP is seeking a federal investigation into the matter, the Post-Dispatch reported Friday. The lieutenant denies the allegations. More information about the investigation and its roots is available in an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website.
