Why is the prosecutor in Ferguson keeping a 2-hour interview with Dorian Johnson secret? Robert McCulloch promised to release all testimony and all evidence the grand jury heard and saw after they failed to indict officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown. Johnson was with Brown when he was shot down, and was the closest eyewitness. Yet McCulloch is keeping Brown’s statements under wraps. Why?

Other key documents are also being withheld.

McCulloch’s office admits to keeping some of the paperwork private and says it’s at the request of feds who are still looking into whether Brown’s civil rights were violated.
