Robert McCulloch, the Missouri prosecutor overseeing an investigation into the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, has deep family roots among police: his father, mother, brother, uncle and cousin all worked for the St. Louis' police department. He has made some very inappropriate remarks within the last few days since Michael Brown's death. Robert McCulloch's father was killed while responding to a call involving a black suspect. Many people questioned his objectivity when grand jurors returned no charges against two officers who fired 21 bullets into a vehicle in June 2000, killing two black men during an attempted drug arrest. In Ferguson, a predominantly black suburb of St. Louis, many residents say they have long been harassed and intimidated by the police department, which has just three black officers on its 53-member force. They have little confidence in McCulloch.
