ST. LOUIS, Miss. — Provoking police just to earn cold hard cash: that’s the idea behind a group advertising in St. Louis. But that cash could come out of the tax payer pocket.
In poorly written text, it asks for a crew to shoot video of undercover investigators pushing police to violate civil rights.
The ad promises pay of $50-60,000 all from the revenue of lawsuits.
