Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 22, 2014

St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch said he has no intentions of removing himself from the Michael Brown case and urged Gov. Jay Nixon (D) to decide if he will act on calls for McCulloch's ouster. Nixon said Tuesday night he won't replace McCulloch as the head prosecutor and explained, "There is a well-established process by which a prosecutor can recuse themselves from a pending investigation, and a special prosecutor be appointed. Departing from this established process could unnecessarily inject legal uncertainty into this matter and potentially jeopardize the prosecution."

more SHAMEFUL and DISGUSTING behavior from people like ERIC HOLDER who are there to see that there is one ending to all of this and that's the way THEY want to go.

So your saying you don't see any possible conflict of interest?

So if the DA was instead a black woman whose father was shot dead by a police officer you'd have no concern?

Why do I bother?

His father being shot doesn't make me think he'd be prejudicial.
HIs refusal to prosecute two officers in a previous event where they unloaded 21 shots into a car where they killed two unarmed black men does.

Just a note: McCulloch's a Democrat. The problem I have with McCulloch is he opted not to charge two undercover drug officers in the shooting of two unarmed black men that were sitting in a car. 21 shots fired IIRC.

Early. Meant to delete the redundancy.

I hope the Justice department steps in and takes over on this.

#2 - Forget it. It's Eric Holder, so Bubbles is automatically against anything he does.

His Obama Derangement Syndrome is nearing terminal status.

I do despise what the liar is able to get away with thanks to radical left wing zealots who support his lies and his purposeful destruction of the economy and now foreign policy because he was brought to believe that everything wrong in the world was our fault....my ill will is toward blind bigots who defend and support his anti constitutional behavior...

He is a democrat and he's been there for many years. I don't know for sure but I can't imagine that he hasn't dealt with shootings just like this before and it was unknown outside of the state..BUT You get the liberal press and race baiters going and things all change..
he HAS called upon the governor to make a decision quickly....

as to holder being involved, he has already proven with words, BEYOND A DOUBT, that he's biased and is there for only one reason....to make SURE the cop is indicted and convicted with no concern AT ALL for blind lady justice.

The guy was elected by the people. He hasn't shown that he's not capable of convicting if guilty.

If there is a perceived bias, why would anyone not want to avoid that?

#11 | Posted by memyselfini at 2014-08-22 01:25 PM | Reply | Flag:

Why is it a perceived bias? The guy was elected by the people. Just because a handful of people got some signatures on a petition you think we should hault the way our local governments work? What would the standard be and who would choose the new prosecutor? What if other people didn't didn't like the one they pick?

"What would the standard be and who would choose the new prosecutor? What if other people didn't didn't like the one they pick?"

The only way to solve this peacefully is to appoint Al Sharpton as prosecutor and go along peacefully with the capital murder conviction of Wilson.

Are you familiar with the Jack-in-the-box case? Forget about race, this guy's history suggests he's strongly biased in favor of police whenever their are allegations of excessive force. He should recuse himself in any case against police officers.

All local prosecutors are strongly biased with the police. They work with police daily to get convictions. It's that way every where in America.

Sentinel, who should pick the new prosecutor? The people that live in the community? Or some outside person? How do you pick them? What if the voters that elected this prosecutor don't like him? We have a society that is structured a certain way and you can't change this type of thing from case to case.

Although sometimes exceptions are made.

No matter where you stand on this case nor whether or not you feel the media attention is manufactured, this is now quite an exceptional case wouldn't you say?

#17 | Posted by memyselfini at 2014-08-22 04:56 PM | Reply | Flag:

exceptional only in coverage ....and when media and sharpton and black panthers start going to ..oh say DALLAS when the cop shot the white kid....well then, maybe it would make a difference.

hell, I'd like to see them go nuts about blacks killing blacks...

BUT here's another view for a liber...

if it's no billed....like most of these cases would be...or he's innocent...it's a ready made excuse to fill up on more tv's, jordons and MD 20 20

If the prosecutor doesn't fit you must acquit...

As noted by the New Republic, police officers are always part of the prosecution team by virtue of their duty to gather the evidence and testify as witnesses for the state. That poses one possible conflict of interest among prosecutors who are weighing charges against police officers.

This is true of 100% of all police involved cases. Are we suggesting we need an independent court system to investigate and prosecute police related crimes? If so, I support that idea totally!
