St. Louis – One St. Louis police officer has been fired and another suspended in the wake of an incident last week. The policemen shot 28 rounds into a fleeing car in which a couple and their three young children were riding.
Police Chief Joe Mokwa has fired a probationary officer who was on the force a short time. Mokwa is recommending the suspended officer be dismissed as well.
He says the shootings were not justified, even though the motorist had disobeyed the officers' orders.
St. Louis – Former Democratic Senator Jean Carnahan of Missouri says she now questions the information she was given by the Bush administration before voting for the war in Iraq.
Carnahan lost re-election to her seat in 2002 after serving two years in Congress. She voted in favor of the U.S.-led coalition's attack on Iraq after being briefed by Donald Rumsfeld and Colin Powell.
Carnahan says it seemed like the proper response to the 9-11 attacks.
