Pine Lawn protestors press for changes in policing

A day after a federal report demanded changes in policing and courts in Ferguson, a group of protesters pressed for similar reforms in a nearby St. Louis suburb.
Keying on a Justice Department report that found Ferguson's justice system unfairly treated backs, 19 protesters insisted the same was true in largely black, 3,200-resident Pine Lawn.
One protester, Roslyn Brown, says she and other local activists in October asked the Justice Department to also probe Pine Lawn's municipal court. She says she hopes that happens.
