FILE - In this Nov. 17, 2019, file photo, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson sits during an NCAA college basketball game between Saint Louis and Seton Hall in St. Louis. Krewson was elected on a pledge to address the violence that ravages her city. Amid that backdrop, it’s not surprising that calls to defund police don’t sit well with her. Yet Krewson’s decision to publicly reveal the names and addresses of anti-police protesters has put her among the big city mayors facing closer scrutiny in the racially charged weeks after George Floyd’s death.
