Mayor Jon Engen On CNN [AUDIO]
Missoula made national news yet again on Wednesday, as CNN’s Erin Burnett-Out Front interviewed Mayor Jon Engen about the Justice Department’s Civil Rights investigation into sexual assaults on campus and in the city. Burnett seemed shocked by the fact that 80 sexual assaults had been reported in a three year span. Engen said that number is not unusual in a college town of Missoula’s size. He defended the Missoula Police force, but said there is always room for improvement.
Burnett’s producer, Bill Hand, says CNN will file more reports from Missoula in the next few days. Audio of some of Engens comments is below.
