6. If I were in Ferguson, I'd be demonstrating in front of McCulloch's house 24/7

rather than breaking store windows and setting things on fire. Thousands of people camping out in the street in front of his house might get his attention. Shame him into agreeing to a special prosecutor anywhere he goes in the United States.

Just read parts of Wilson's grand jury testimony, as pointed out by the Washington Post. Of course Wilson's story was consistent. He was being fed the answers contained within the prosecutor's questions, something called "leading the witness", making his testimony choreographed and scripted with a specific result in mind.

“So you got out of the car, you are running, you are telling to stop; is that right?

“Correct,’’ Wilson responds.

“And he’s not listening?’’ the prosecutor asks.

“No,’’ Wilson says.

At another point, a prosecutor tells Wilson that she doesn’t want to “put words in your mouth” even while asking that, as Brown was allegedly striking the officer in the face as he sat in his police car, “it was your opinion that you needed to pull out your weapon?’’

“I felt another one of those punches in my face could knock me out or worse,’’ Wilson testified. “I mean, it was, he’s obviously bigger than I was and stronger and I’ve already taken two to the face and . . . the third one could be fatal if it hit me right.’’
