Rudy Giuliani: Ferguson case should never have gone to a grand jury

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday doubled-down on his argument that high crime rates in black neighborhoods are to blame for tension between African-Americans and the police. And he argued that the case against Darren Wilson, the white police officer who killed Michael Brown, should never have even gone to a grand jury.

"I don't see how this case normally would have even been brought to a grand jury," he said on Fox News Sunday. "This is the kind of case that, had it not had the racial overtones and the national publicity, where a prosecutor would have come to the conclusion that there is not enough evidence to present to the grand jury."

Last week, Giuliani came under fire for telling a black panelist on Meet the Press that there would not be an outsize police presence in black communities "if you weren't killing each other."
