Wilson got special treatment because he's a cop. If this prosecutor had a history of doing evidence dumps on grand juries for non-cops, instead of going before them to push hard for indictment, I could believe the process was fair. But I see zero evidence of that.

True, cops get special treatment, since they are on the same side of the DA's office, and Wilson is no different than any other cop in any major city or suburb. However, you are making two other assumptions that you have no support for:
1. All prosecutors do "evidence dumps" when seeking an indictment, if you withhold any evidence (good or bad) that can get you fired;
2. There is no evidence that this DA did anything different (other than release the full transcripts and evidence before the GJ, which I have never seen) than he usually does, so to assume that he altered his usual procedure is unfounded.
