ROBERT P. McCULLOCH
St. Louis County
COUNTY, MISSOURI 63105
TTY (314) 615-5267
I APPRECIATE AND UNDERSTAND THE
CONCERNS OF THOSE WHO HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT I CANNOT OR WILL NOT BE FAIR TO ALL
IN THE GATHERING AND PRESENTATION OF THE EVIDENCE PERTAINING TO THE TRAGIC
DEATH OF MICHAEL BROWN. ALTHOUGH I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERNS, AND DO NOT TAKE
LIGHTLY THE DEMANDS THAT I RECUSE MYSELF FROM THIS CASE, I ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT
I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO THE FAMILY OF MICHAEL BROWN, THE PEOPLE OF FERGUSON
AND THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
AS I HAVE STATED REPEATEDLY, I
HAVE NO INTENTION OF WALKING AWAY FROM THE RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES
ENTRUSTED TO ME BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS COMMUNITY. ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS NO
BASIS IN THE LAW TO DO SO. I HAVE FAITHFULLY AND FAIRLY CARRIED OUT THOSE
RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO
SO FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.
I ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT THE
DECLARATION OF EMERGENCY BY GOVERNOR NIXON GRANTS THE GOVERNOR EXCLUSIVE POWER
TO REMOVE ME AND MY OFFICE FROM ANY FURTHER INVOLVEMENT IN THIS MATTER.
ALTHOUGH I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT SUCH ACTION WOULD BE A MISTAKE ON THE PART OF
THE GOVERNOR, I DO URGE ALL SEEKING MY REMOVAL TO EXPRESS THOSE DEMANDS TO THE
GOVERNOR AND, AS I HAVE, DEMAND THAT HE MAKE A DECISION TO REMOVE THIS OFFICE
OR NOT REMOVE THIS OFFICE AND END THIS DISTRACTION. ONLY THE GOVERNOR CAN
ANSWER THIS QUESTION.
WE HAVE BEGUN PRESENTATION OF
EVIDENCE TO THE GRAND JURY AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO IN A FAIR, FULL AND
IMPARTIAL MANNER. HOWEVER, THE GOVERNOR MUST SETTLE THIS ISSUE NOW. TO LEAVE
THIS ISSUE UNRESOLVED NOW LEAVES THE POSSIBILITY OF EXERCISING THIS POWER AT A
LATER DATE WHICH WILL CAUSE A SIGNIFICANT AND UNWARRANTED DELAY IN THE
RESOLUTION OF THE INVESTIGATION AND RESOLUTION OF THE CASE. THE FAMILY OF
MICHAEL BROWN DESERVES AN ANSWER, THE PEOPLE OF FERGUSON DESERVE AN ANSWER AND
THE PEOPLE OF THE ENTIRE AREA DESERVE AN ANSWER.
