NS. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) – Action was taken against St. Louis County Health Director after making inappropriate gestures against the county council crowd in July.

Security guard statements and surveillance videos say Dr. Faisal Khan, director of health at St. Louis County, was physically pushed and cried out for racial injuries at a controversial county council meeting last week. It raises questions about the claim.



At a county council meeting on Tuesday, county executive Dr. Sam Page lost his composure during a heated meeting over resuming Mask’s mission and turned over some people before Faisal Khan. He revealed that he had been verbally rebuked.

“It’s well established that Dr. Cahn was treated poorly and felt unsafe,” Page said. “I verbally rebuked Dr. Cahn for the gestures he used out of fear and frustration.”

The surveillance video from News 4 shows him raising his arm and giving his middle finger.

“Unfortunately, when someone came out to my face and shouted something, I slipped for a moment and flipped my fingers,” Khan said in August. “I was confused, punished, and cursed. I have no intention of repeating it because racist abuse was directed at me.”

Deputy Health Director of St. Louis County admitted to giving someone a middle finger about the county’s resurrected Maskman date after a parliamentary meeting on Tuesday, saying “sorry” and being physically and verbally assaulted during and after the presentation. He added.

News 4 does not have a clear video of Dr. Cahn leaving the council room. Meanwhile, he said in a letter that he was hit and pushed on his shoulder. The video from the lobby shows the moment after that, but there is no audio. In the letter, Kahn claims outside the room that he was surrounded by angry mobs nearby and was called an obvious racial slur.

City councilman Tim Fitch pressured the page about Khan’s statement in a letter sent to city councilors and apologized for his actions. However, county executives refused to address concerns as it was a personal matter.
