‘Gypsy Cops’ With Questionable Pasts Hired by Different Departments, Due to Lack of Oversight
It’s been more than two years since Ferguson, Missouri erupted in violence after the police shooting death of Michael Brown. Since then, the city has agreed to overhaul its police department to restore public accountability. But there are few checks in place to keep problem cops off the streets across the nation, reports CBS News correspondent DeMarco Morgan.
They’re known as “gypsy cops” – police officers with questionable records that leave one department, only to be hired by another. One officer remains on the payroll in Ferguson, Missouri, where one woman says enough is enough.
