Grand Jury Considering Ferguson Shooting Is Being Investigated for Misconduct

October 02, 2014  | 

The St. Louis County prosecutor's office is investigating an accusation of misconduct on the grand jury that is hearing the case against the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, reports the Washington Post.

Ed Magee, the spokesman for county prosecutor Robert McCulloch, said they received the information from a "Twitter user" Wednesday morning.

An account of possible jury misconduct surfaced Wednesday morning on Twitter, when several users sent messages about one juror who may have discussed evidence in the case with a friend.

In one of those messages, a person tweeted that she is friends with a member of the jury who doesn’t believe there is enough evidence to warrant an arrest of the officer, Darren Wilson.

The same person who tweeted about being friends with a member of the jury has also tweeted messages of support for Wilson.

Magee confirmed that information on the Twitter user and feed came from an activist, Shaun King.

The witch hunt now moves from fb to twitter. the real investigation should be of the Governor and the out going AG for their biased investigations.

I agree with Mitch.

This is a crying shame that Officer Wilson, has to go through all this just for doing his job. This idiot we have for president should have kept his nose out of local police problems.

When Darren Wilson & Ferguson P.D. are cleared they should walk into the next City Council/Commission Meeting (where protestors now go to harass), turn in all their issued gear, ID, Badge, etc. telling the people there to protect themselves, & walk right out the door. Not one of their supporters could or would blame them.

There are persons in our society that are actively seeking a Race War. It seems they are close to getting what they want. If this trend continues, I see no other outcome.

Ferguson, the lawless city. I never thought this day and age I would see a American, city get taken over by a bunch of thugs.
