The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl has replaced the majority of the city’s Citizen Police Review Board. The new appointments would replace five out of seven members of the board. Ravenstahl’s announcement happened to coincide with a contempt of court proceeding the Citizen Review Board filed against Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper. The Review Board has accused Chief Harper of intentionally withholding documents requested in conjunction with a G-20 investigation.
