Kim Gardner is gonna have to either produce results in doing her job or proof of allegations of a conspiracy because all we have now is an office that’s overwhelmed, staffed with inexperienced prosecutors due to her setting scores and alienating more experienced prosecutors who left resulting in murder cases dropped or dismissed on the eve of trial and thousands of cases where she has refused to bring charges denying thousands of black victims justice. What she alleges is a conspiracy is Jeff Roorda and police officers who don’t like her exercising thier first amendment rights… her beef with Jeff Roorda goes back to both their days in the MO House, this is not new. And police can talk shit about elected officials… neither has anything to do with her having a huge turnover rate in her office or dropping cases on the eve of trial. And as for the special prosecutor knowing attorneys involved in the case, attorneys know each other, most either graduated from SLU or Wash U lawschool. Some attorneys serve as judges, prosecutors or defense attorneys in one municipality and hold the exact opposite position in another. If there’s a conspiracy, that’s the conspiracy.
