(CNN) – St. Louis county prosecutor Bob McCulloch says the grand jury will begin hearing evidence in the Michael Brown shooting Wednesday.
But the protesters who want to see Officer Darren Wilson charged – and charged right now – appear to be in for some disappointment, because McCullough also says it could take till mid-October to hear all the evidence.
There is a movement to get McCullough removed from the case. Critics charge that he's biased, citing the fact that his father, mother, brother, uncle and cousin have all worked for the department. His father, a police officer, was killed by a black man while on a call in 1964.
McCullough has a record of insensitivity to Ferguson's African-American community, said Charlie Dooley, the St. Louis county executive leading the charge to boot prosecutor McCulloch off the case.
"The African-American community has stated over and over again, they do not trust his judgment. They think he's biased. They think they cannot get justice from that individual," said Dooley.
