Controversy rises at North Charleston City Council Meeting

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — Members of Black Lives Matter and The Fight for Fifteen were among people who spoke out against a lack of transparency of the Citizens Advisory Commission.

People gathered at the North Charleston City Council Meeting  to find out how council members plan to elect people to serve on the Citizens Advisory Commission on Community Police Relations that was passed unanimously by council last month.

The board is a result of community uproar following the shooting of Walter Scott. People asked city officials for an autonomous regulatory group that would oversee the North Charleston Police Department. City officials agreed, but many think the board created does not reflect what they had envisioned.

The current commission will have 25 members. Each council member will elect two people from their district to serve on the board but people are concerned with how council members plan to make those decisions.
