Ferguson Prosecutor Busted Presenting Fake Witness Before Grand Jury (VIDEO)

So, you are Prosecutor Bob McCulloch. You have a grand jury investigation with the entire world watching. One of your witnesses in support of the officer is revealed by the FBI to have made up her entire account. What do you do?

Apparently you present a discredited witness to the grand jury anyways. He played the FBI interview, which revealed that Witness 40’s car was not at the location, that 40 could not have exited in the manner described, that 40 did not even tell anyone her story until over two weeks after the shooting. They tore her apart, showing that she changed her story several times while sitting on the stand. For example, in her interview, 40 claimed to have made no contact to the police for two weeks, then later claimed that she did contact them several times before agreeing to be a witness. And that is not the only occasion they caught her changing her story, with other times her lack of knowledge of the crime scene, how her journal and testimony did not match, how the exit for the complex did not exist where she claimed all being revealed. That interview, found on pages 86-184 of Grand Jury Testimony Volume 15, completely discredits her as a witness.

Then, fully knowing this, Bob McCulloch brought her before the grand jury, and entered her hand written journals filled with racist language into the record. And this testimony, by a discredited witness, is the one cited by right-wing media outlets in their attempts to support former Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Claims of Michael Brown charging like a bull? Her account, and only her account.

Is Witness 40 a legitimate witness? Possible, but highly improbable in light of her interview. Instead, the interviews, the journal, and her own account comes across not as an eye-witness, but instead of someone seeking their moment of fortune and fame in the spotlight. In her interviews it was revealed that Witness 40 involved herself in fundraising for Wilson, even going so far as to work on getting children to send him cards of appreciation. Her story as to why she did not come forward is preposterous, her journal reads not as a diary or narrative essay but instead as someone trying to concoct a story in order to be made famous on Jerry Springer.

Why did Bob McCulloch put such a questionable witness onto the stand, in a case against Darren Wilson? Remember, this is for the grand jury, not a trial, and evidence is for the prosecution’s benefit and not the defense. But here is this questionable witness, who was found to be on shaky credibility grounds, put on the stand, and she came out supporting the defense… as a prosecution witness. This only further highlights that the grand jury process was mismanaged, or worse deliberately rigged.

Witness 40, fraud, con woman, or delusional? Whatever the case, that McCulloch put her on the stand to begin with tells us all we need to about his management, or rather mismanagement, of the entire grand jury process.
