Sometimes when Prosecutors, hem and haw, and drag their feet, and intentional smear the character of the victims of crimes -- crimes that they should be prosecuting -- those Prosecutors HAVE TO GO!
Here's your chance to 'add your voice' to that sentiment ...
State Senator Jamilah Nasheed Requests Special Prosecutor Robert McCulloch Step Down In Brown Investigation (DETAILS)
by Christina Coleman, globalgrind.com -- Aug 18, 2014
State Senator Jamilah Nasheed (D-St. Louis) requested that St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch recuse his office from the investigation into the shooting death of Michael Brown so that a special prosecutor can be appointed to oversee the investigation.
In a two-page letter, Nasheed explains her call for action:“This racially charged climate demands an independent investigation, and to be perfectly blunt, the African-American community has no confidence that your office can carry out an impartial investigation and prosecution.”Nasheed has also launched an online petition to gather further support for the appointment of an independent prosecutor.
She cited several reasons for this lack of confidence, including McCullochs’ failure to bring charges against police officers accused of killing two African American men in 2000 – even in the face of the findings from an independent U.S. Attorney Office investigation that those officers had lied about their behavior and fired 20 shots into the unarmed victims’ vehicle.
The Petition is hosted on MoveOn.org -- They are close to their goal.
I bet we can put them over the top.

by Brian Chappatta, Bloomberg News, businessweek.com -- August 17, 2014
St. Louis County prosecutors [Robert McCulloch] must step up their investigations into the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, Governor Jay Nixon said.Give the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, a piece of your mind -- Tell him that Look-the-other-way McCulloch -- HAS TO GO!
“We don’t have any confidence in the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney’s office,” said U.S. Representative William Lacy Clay, a Democrat from St. Louis, according to a Post-Dispatch article dated yesterday. “I have no faith in him, but I do trust the FBI and the Justice Department.”
Federal officials, who are completing a parallel investigation alongside county officials, “help tremendously to make sure that all the information is getting out,” Nixon said.
