#RoastAManno ep. 1: St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s Conflict of Interest

St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Sergeant Brian Rossomanno lines his pockets with city budget

Finally St. Louis residents are being made aware of Sgt. Brian Rossomanno’s national security contracting business, 0311 Tactical Solutions, LLC. His private company is contracted to train the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in military tactics. Beyond this being a glaring conflict of interest, it is very telling of the type of training the police receive to use against residents. We have seen, day after day, heavily armored police attacking non-violent protesters, nearly always without provocation. And of course, leading his army of tactically trained police, is the self-proclaimed #RiotKing Sgt. Rossomanno himself. Rossamanno is the head of St Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s civil disobedience team. He makes the call to brutally attack non-violent protesters with chemical munitions, as well as using illegal maneuvers such as kettling.

In STLToday’s article that brought this subject to light, they reported:

Rossomanno declined to be interviewed for this story. In an email on Friday, he said that 0311 Tactical did not bid on contracts from the St. Louis police because it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Later that day, his company’s website was edited to delete the St. Louis police department and its SWAT team as clients.

After browsing his website and using simple web searches, it was easy to find the poor edit jobs. Information was hidden by removing a couple of links — but leaving the pages — and a shoddy text deletion of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s accolades. As such, we’re providing you the before and after screenshots. It has also been archived, in case ineptly destroyed evidence would be needed later.

Before, from their currently live but unlinked testimonials page:

With a hasty deletion of text, not bothering to properly modify the formatting, is the current rendition:

What happened there? It looks like Rossomanno worried about being caught in a scandal, so deleted any mention of the SLMPD. Next, unmodified and live as of this posting — but we can expect it to be edited — is the first responders training page:

What is this? Let’s zoom in a bit here to be sure we’re seeing this right:

So let’s presume that indeed, Rossamanno’s company didn’t bid on contracts. That would absolutely be a conflict of interest! Perhaps the police department just handed the contract to him, maybe at his own suggestion. Then at some point his training was made mandatory. Doesn’t this make you wonder how many of your tax dollars went to 0311 Tactical Solutions, LLC to train each SLMPD employee? And was it truly all of their employees, such as the dispatchers and janitors? That’s what we inferred from the above statement. Certainly an officer of the law wouldn’t directly lie to the public, so perhaps Rossomanno’s email to the Post-Dispatch merely had an omission of a minor detail; a simple indiscretion. Let’s call it an oversight. We surely wouldn’t want to tarnish the reputation of such a beloved sergeant of the police department by accusing him of misleading the public. Thus we’ll let you be the judge.

We won’t fret unduly over the destruction of digital evidence. Because as required by law, the receipts will be available from both the police department that wrote the checks, as well as the national security contractor that was paid. That should be enough evidence on its own.

Stick around, we’ve got additional information to share! We have more documentation regarding 0311 and the shady arrangements between #RiotKing and St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Even though proper justice wasn’t served for Anthony Lamar Smith, we believe every protester who has been assaulted by this vicious man’s command over the years will get a bit of satisfaction in watching the #RoastAManno show play out.  In the meantime, this is a notice to St. Louis City to put Rossamanno on unpaid suspension, as demanded by the taxpayers.
