McCulloch blasts Nixon
St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch Thursday night blasted the decision by Gov. Jay Nixon to replace St. Louis County Police control of the Ferguson situation with the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
“It’s shameful what he did today, he had no legal authority to do that,” McCulloch said. “To denigrate the men and women of the county police department is shameful.”
McCulloch noted that no one was seriously injured in the effort led by County Police Chief Jon Belmar until Nixon handed control of the Ferguson over to the state agency on Thursday.
“For Nixon to never talk to the commanders in the field and come in here and take this action is disgraceful,” McCulloch said.
“I hope I’m wrong, but I think what Nixon did may put a lot of people in danger.”
