This is all fine and dandy but is NO SUBSTITUTE for reopening the investigation into the murder of Mike Brown, charging Darren Wilson himself (he doesn’t need a grand jury to do that) or opening an investigation into the murder of Darren Seals whose body was found in Riverview where Bell served as the prosecutor. Bell could have done all that today, but didn’t. It’s wild how many folks settled for a firing rather than pressing Bell for the justice we took to the streets for… By this logic if she deserves firing, what does that say about Bell for not reopening the Mike Brown case or indicting Darren Wilson now that he has the authority? And if he won’t, how is that any diff from McCulloch not indicting Darren Wilson?<br><br>All this does is open a whole new can of worms when the pushback begins from Jeff Roorda and the STLPD Police Officer’s Union who represent prosecutors in Bell’s office. There is a very good chance this firing will be undone on appeal because he’s not charging Darren Wilson either… fire her for the failure to indict, then failing to indict your damn self?
