“It looks like he wanted to create the appearance that there had been a public trial when in fact there hadn’t been,” said Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman, in an interview with The New York Times.
McCulloch gave Wilson’s case special treatment. He turned it over to the grand jury, a rarity itself, and then used the investigation as a document dump, an approach that is virtually without precedent in the law of Missouri or anywhere else. Buried underneath every scrap of evidence McCulloch could find, the grand jury threw up its hands and said that a crime could not be proved. This is the opposite of the customary ham-sandwich approach, in which the jurors are explicitly steered to the prosecutor’s preferred conclusion.
This is clearly not just an issue protesters are blowing out of proportion. Legal experts and scholars are coming out in the open and saying that justice was not served. They are telling us that the way the grand jury was conducted, and the special treatment the prosecutor gave are indicative of systematic corruption.

Out in a year?
My friend I bet he does 6 months or less. Atleast that is how it would be in Florida.
Trust me I know this from experience. I get disposition sheets from the state attorneys office after the completion of the trial and sentencing of every person I arrest.
I have stacks and stacks of offenders who have prior records, who are found guilty of violent crimes yet get less then a year.
The judicial system is bogus.
Our court system has been infiltrated by members of this secret society sworn to protect each other from prosecution of any criminal activity and to render favorable judgments to its member. Other members of society are victimized in the courts.
A short time ago I received an email with a court excerpt, clearly showing how Freemasonry has infiltrated the court system by putting judges, prosecutors and attorneys in key positions. As long as this continues there is no justice but theirs, as those people stand above the law, because they ARE the law.
If people don't know about Freemasonry and its influence on the legal system, they have no clue that they are setup and have little chance of an honest trial.
In this particular case, John, the defendant observes how the Attorney General, Mr. Anthony Krastek is giving a hand signal (the palm up) each and every time his attorney makes a statement, until he cannot take it any longer. He asks Mr. Krastek if he is a Freemason (Exhibit 1, page 7), whereas the Attorney General turns red and gives the full "raised arm palms up" (high distress sign) to the judge, Lawrence J. O'Toole. The judge suddenly loses it on the record, and gives reference to Freemasonic symbols, the ones on the one-dollar-bill (Exhibit 1, page 7).
Freemasons Control the Court (And Thus the Legal System)
The Court System And Freemasonry
The legal system is a joke
What chance does a non - Mason have going into a court of law against Masons when there is a Masonic judge and Masonic attorneys. All a Mason has to do is let a Masonic Judge, or even a Masonic Juror know that he is a Masonic brother and that is that.
Sometimes you look the way a case, is going and it just doesn't make sense. We had one in Seattle not too long ago, in fact the Union my sister worked for was involved in it and nothing went right, even simple points that were obvious to everyone but the Judge. They couldn't figure out what was wrong and I asked her, "Are the defendants and the judge Masons?" She checked it out and found out that they were.
I said, "You don't have a chance. There is no way you can win because, they passed the word to the judge in the lodge or they gave that Judge a signal, they gave him the sign of the square, or the sign of distress, gave him one of a dozen different signs they could give him and that judge was bound by his Masonic code to find for his brother. He is going to do that for the Mason whether he's right or wrong."
There is no way you can win
A grand jury is not a rarity.

I guess you missed that they are saying that the prosecutor did not use evidence to steer the grand jury. They are saying that the prosecutor provided all the available evidence and left it up to the jury to decide if that evidence was sufficient for an indictment.
The prosecuters preferred conclusion? Thats a big problem, i dont care what the prosecutor thinks or believes he should conduct himself in a similar fashion to how he deals with every possible offender on every other case.

A grand jury is due process. Just as a judge may or may not indict, so may or may not a grand jury. Indictment is the first step, a trail is not.
Why didnt they draw charges up and go to trial and prove him not guilty using due process of law?
Why grand jury?

Perhaps you should glance through the court documents and determine for yourself then. I have and it's pretty damn bad.
