Mo. cops sue over meth-lab injuries

From Tony Rizzo: A federal lawsuit alleges that three Missouri police officers suffered permanent injuries after inhaling poisonous vapors during a 2007 raid on a methamphetamine lab.

The current and former officers in Butler, Mo., allege in the suit filed this week in federal court in Kansas City that they were not properly trained in the risks of methamphetamine labs and in the use of available protective equipment.

The suit was filed against the current and former police chiefs of the city, which is about an hour south of Kansas City, as well as the former mayor of Butler.
