cleveland.com — As a young man, Jackson was influenced by the street politics of his close friend Lonnie Burten, a crusading Central neighborhood councilman who fought against the establishment and for forgotten people such as public housing tenants.

McCulloch's grand jury process, leaks to the press, comments made during his bizarre, ill-timed verdict announcement, and information revealed in the document drop, prove that earlier demands that a special prosecutor be named were justified.
