Bob McCulloch (c. 1952- ), an American lawyer, has been the county prosecutor for St Louis County, Missouri since 1991. St Louis County is a suburban county just west of the city of St Louis.
On August 20th 2014 McCulloch began presenting the Michael Brown shooting case to a grand jury. Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teenager, was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri by Darren Wilson, a White police officer.
The grand jury will determine what crime, if any, Wilson should be charged with. It will only hear what McCulloch presents.
McCulloch seems to side with Officer Wilson, the killer:
- He had plenty of evidence to charge Wilson without a grand jury, yet did not.
- When Wilson’s name was made public, he also made public a video of alleged shoplifting by Brown.
- He will allow Wilson to speak before the grand jury. That is rare since prosecutors generally try to make the best case for bringing a charge.
