St. Louis Has the Chance to Follow Chicago and Oust a Soft-On-Crime Public Official
- BY Sarah Coffey
Will St. Louis be the next city to see a soft-on-crime public official kicked to the curb?

St. Louisans are increasingly dissatisfied with Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner and her office’s failure to keep violent criminals off the streets. My beautiful hometown — once famous for its rich immigrant communities, the best Italian food on the Hill, Forest Park, universities, museums, quiet suburbs and of course, the Gateway Arch — is now known for its high crime rate.
