Who’s Bob McCulloch, you might ask. Bob McCulloch is the eight-term St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney who decide not to press charges against the cop who murdered Michael Brown back in 2014.
Bob McCulloch lost his primary last night night. Wesley Bell, a city council member for Ferguson, where Brown lived, won.
YOU KNOW WHAT MAKES THIS EVEN BETTER????
Wesley Bell is effectively St. Louis County’s first African American Prosecuting Attorney because there is no republican challenger for the November election.
Bell ran on promises to get rid of cash bail for non-violent offences and never seek the death penalty. I’m sure there were other things too, those are the ones that come to mind.
This is so exciting! SO FUCKING EXCITING!
So, Bob, you’ve been milking this job since the 1990s with all your police department cronyism, don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.
