    Because all the evidence (in this case) could only lead to one logical conclusion... I agree with CJ, though. The angry mob forced Mcculloch to bring the case to the GJ. He didn't want to.. He knew there was no case there.

    There's not a prosecuted in the world that would take a case to trial, knowing that most of his witnesses are lying.

    Wilson didn't shoot him an more until he got out of the car and was pursuing Brown. I don't see that in your account.

    It's not a matter of acquittal, since it's not a trial.

    As I understand it, a DA is not required to present exculpatory evidence to a grand jury when seeking an indictment. By presenting all evidence in this matter, including evidence that works against indictment, the defendant may avoid a trial. I was simply suggesting that if this was done in all cases, it's likely that there would be fewer costly, time consuming trials.

    It is evident that allowing wilson to testify unchallenged before the GJ was an excellent move for someone the DA NEVER treated as "the accused".

    Secondly, it is also evident that wilson did not need a defense attorney as the FPD and the DA worked as his defense team.
    Again, knowledge of how a GJ works would be quite helpful. It's interesting how desired results get spun to explain why it wasn't achieved. Perhaps you would have preferred evidence be hidden so your preconceived guilt would stand a chance.

    I was surprised at how young Wilson looked. In the still photos released earlier he looks like a man in his late 30s at least (he is 28).

    It is done everyday. That is the procedure for seeking an indictment. That is exactly what I suggested.

    "Perhaps you would have preferred evidence be hidden so your preconceived guilt would stand a chance"
    Whether ^^^this is a rhetorical statement or a question missing a question mark...it proves YOU are not familiar with the purpose of a Grand Jury and the normal protocol of a DA seeking an indictment.

    Furthermore...if you believe every suspect is given the same treatment that Wilson gave given...you clearly don't have a clue of the GJ procedure.

    Well, it was just one sentence, so....


    According to Wilson's police interview he shot his gun off at least twice inside the car....and Michael Brown's blood was all over Wilson's right hand. Then Brown backed away from the car and took off running, then Wilson got out of his car yelled for him to stop and turn around....which Brown did. The rest is highly debatable whether or not Brown was trying to surrender or charge the officer.

    The procedure was followed, the evidence did not support indictment, and your bias is duly noted.

    I assure you, as evidenced by your insistence, that my knowledge of GJ procedure is fully secure and accurate. Perhaps you could achieve the same level of knowledge some day.

    True, and many legal experts have indicated it would be nearly impossible to get a guilty verdict from a court trial. So, what would be the point of even brining it other than some people are so emotionally invested in this case.
