McCulloch Declines Calls To Recuse Self In Brown Case
(Clayton, MO) -- Community leaders are calling for St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch to remove himself from the Michael Brown case. Protesters calling themselves the Justice for Michael Brown Coalition gathered outside his office in Ferguson today, with a spokesman for the group delivering a list of demands.
State Senator Jamilah Nasheed claims the group has 70-thousand signatures demanding McCulloch's removal. In response, the prosecutor issued a statement that he's responsible to Michael Brown's family and the city of Ferguson, and he won't walk away from those responsibilities.
McCulloch also said only Governor Nixon can remove him from the case. Earlier this week, Nixon issued a statement saying he wouldn't do that. McCulloch began presenting evidence in the shooting to a grand jury yesterday, and said that process could last into October.
