Grand jury considering the Ferguson shooting is being investigated for misconduct - The Washington Post

There is a chance they will have to seat a new Grand Jury and start over.

At this point the entire story is based on hearsay and any discussion is pure speculation. Feel free to continue to speculate without any direct evidence.

I think social media and all the texting/tweeting/emailing is showing average Americans how stupid our fellow citizens really are. Time after time everyone reads or hears about these fools who cannot control their urges to talk, gossip, or narcissisticly brag about what they are doing, and it costs them their jobs, reputations, etc.
Yet hearing this does not dissuade others from turning around and doing the same thing. So if this all turns out to be true and they need to seat another grand jury, it is such a waste of time and resources.

Then again I've already heard they want a jury that will indite the LEO for fear that anything less, will result in riots. Apparently a black congressman has publicly stated as much.

Why is it necessary for the County prosecutor to even have his own designated "spokesman?"

The report states that the Grand Jury has been "weighing the evidence" since August 20th.
If I remember my middle-school Civics classes correctly, Grand Juries generally just determine whether the presiding jurisdiction has enough evidence to proceed with an indictment of the accused. Isn't this usually a fairly quick process? I mean the prosecutor/state says, "Here's what we got, whattaya you think, is it worth charging this guy and maybe going to trial?"
Why has this already taken over a month and a half with no indictment or dismissal?
