Stategywise I think the better move for Bell would have been pressing charges against Darren Wilson, something he could have done on his own fruition without the need of a grand jury and without widening the riff between him and prosecutors in his office or bringing STLPD Officer’s Union and Jeff Roorda in the mix.
