  •  So that assumes that the officer (in this case (2+ / 0-)

    Wilson) would be forced to testify in grand jury hearings.

    I find that highly unlikely here. If Wilson does indeed testify before the grand jury, it will be because he and his legal team decided to do so and not because he was compelled to by the prosecution.

    •  I'm looking at the total (8+ / 0-)

      history of gross malfeasance in this case.  One tiny but important piece is the DA refusing to recuse himself/office from "prosecuting."  He has already made a grossly inappropriate remark about Gov. Nixon appointing Johnson.

      I don't even have to put on my tinfoil hat to imagine that in this utterly toxic place that a DA would be involved in advising (suggesting) Wilson comply with a subpoena before the Grand Jury.  That Wilson refuse to testify.  That the DA ask that Wilson be compelled to testify under threat of contempt of court.  That Wilson and his lawyer already know about Kastigar v. U.S. and so on.

      If you can provide one smidgeon of non-corruption from the Ferguson and StL County PDs and the DA's office I'd be very happy to entertain it.

      which is apparently rare for a grand jury. This at the invitation of the Prosecutor, stinking Bob McCulloch. Michael Brown will not be allowed to counter his story.

      Sunday mornings are more beautiful without Meet the Press.
