ST. LOUIS, MO (KDKZ-TV) As Governor Greitens continues to fight a felony invasion-of-privacy charge, members of the law enforcement community are questioning the credibility of Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner and her case.

St. Louis Police Sergeant Tom Lake – the officer who was ambushed and shot twice in the face back in November of 2016 – is one of a growing number of current and retired police officers speaking out against Kim Gardner and the case she’s brought against Governor Eric Greitens.

“Kim said it, shortly after she was elected. In that office, she wanted to go after violent criminals, and that she wasn’t worried about people smoking weed on the street. It’s in the paper. She’s quoted as saying it. But she’s spending almost a million dollars of her budget to go after the governor on a privacy issue that happened 3 years ago – and the victim doesn’t want to prosecute.”

He went on to say “Based on what she told everybody, that if the grand jury indicted this guy, she had to have told them that she had the picture. And then she goes into open court and says she doesn’t.”

So, what does this means for violent offenders walking the streets of St. Louis?   He said, “she has dismissed 4 homicide suspects last week because she didn’t have a prosecutor to prosecute them.”
