“Steele also was the losing lead prosecutor in the trial of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, who had been charged with the 2011 murder of drug suspect Anthony Lamar Smith.
A judge in September 2017 found Stockley not guilty, a verdict that ignited months of protests in the St. Louis area.”
Ok, so you fire the lead prosecutor who failed to indict Darren Wilson, while thinking about hiring the lead prosecutor who failed to convict Jason Stockley despite audio of him threatening to kill Anthony Lamar Smith and video of him planting a gun in his car? This negates the whole purpose of firing Kathi Alizadeh and gives her an excellent shot at getting her job back on appeal.
What is the standard because this makes no sense…
