New St. Louis Public Safety Director

Mayor Krewson has appointed Judge Jimmie Edwards as Public Safety Director for the City of St. Louis. This is an excellent selection. Judge Edwards who is African American has been a progressive judge, specializing in providing youth in trouble alternatives to prison. He started a school to attempt to educate students who had been expelled from St. Louis Public Schools. This effort has been a real disaster but the fault is mainly with the school system. Judge Edwards seems as if he will strike a proper balance between the police and community activists. It is a good small step in starting the healing process in St. Louis. Written by Paul Dribin
