You shouldn’t be surprised. He is a principal witness. Unless, of course, you subscribe to the theory that the purpose of a grand jury is only to indict ham sandwiches and not determine if there is probable cause to go to trial. It will be interesting to see what the results of the grand jury’s determination on this matter might be. They were an existing grand jury and not selected particularly for this investigation. Three are black and the rest, I believe, are white. A no bill along racial lines will be about the worst case scenario.

Of course he is available to say whatever he wants behind closed doors where no one knows what is being said.

Generally speaking, that is exactly what grand juries do. They indict at a very high level if the prosecutor provides enough information that a case should go to trial. An unarmed kid was killed. Personally, I think anything relating to police actions like this should not be done at the local level - anywhere - because they are too close to the police and are politically fucked no matter what they do.

re: #2 WhatEVs

That is exactly what most prosecutors do. They present only their case to the grand jury. This is something that has been the subject of harsh criticism by such august organizations a the ACLU and many advocates of civil liberties. So what do we do now? Complain that the Grand Jury is being presented with all information? Why that would be unfairly fair wouldn’t it?

And what are they hearing?
