Governor Jay Nixon is undermining the process and further aggravating the situation in Ferguson, Mo., with his comments regarding who should prosecute the Brown case, according to the man at the center of the latest controversy in the death of Michael Brown.
McCulloch said in a radio interview that aired on CNN that the governor’s comments were “typical Nixon doublespeak” and “a distraction,” which hampered the process from moving forward.
“The Brown family deserves that, and the rest of the community deserves it, so just make a decision,” he said. “He said absolutely nothing last night that is any way, shape, or form meaningful, and it only aggravates the situation.”
“Stand up, man up — stand up and say, ‘I have this authority — I am not removing McCulloch,’ [or] ‘I am removing McCulloch,’ and move on with this,” he continued.
