The St. Louis prosecutor in charge of the Ferguson grand jury today acknowledged that witnesses “absolutely lied under oath” before the http://www.thesmokinggun.com/sites/default/files/assets/stlouisduo.jpgpanel, but said that none of the perjurers--including the unmasked "Witness 40"--would face criminal charges.

During a KTRS radio interview, Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said that, “Early on I decided that anyone who claimed to have witnessed anything would be presented to the grand jury,” even if investigators questioned their truthfulness.
McCulloch (seen above left) said that he opted to present “anybody and everybody” to the grand jury, adding that it was the responsibility of panel members to judge the credibility of individual witnesses.
Referring to “Witness 40,” whom TSG identified this week (http://thesmokinggun.com/documents/unmasking-Ferguson-witness-40-496236) as a 45-year-old St. Louis woman named Sandra McElroy, McCulloch said she “clearly wasn’t present” when Michael Brown was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson.\

Damned if he did, damned if he didn't - was a lose-lose for him.

No one was going to be happy with whatever he decided to do. But by not prosecuting perjurers exposed as such by autopsy evidence and their own significant story changes he guaranteed there will be many more "next times", and in some of those next times there won't be such overwhelming physical evidence that exonerates the (wo)man who is falsely accused! Even if it meant an end to his political career, for the public good he should have prosecuted every perjurer, aggressively.

Truth and the law were his responsibilities, he should be removed office.
