About forty people gathered outside Maplewood City Hall on Wednesday to protest the beating of a black man by Maplewood and St. Louis police. Federal Prosecutor Catherine Hanaway has promised an impartial review of the beating of Edmon Burns. That review will involve the FBI, the police agencies involved and federal and state prosecutors. The beating took place after a car chase of Burns from Maplewood to St. Louis ended. It was captured on videotape by television crews.
