“The brave men and women of the St Louis County Police Association are saddened and deeply disappointed by Mr. McCulloch’s decision not to seek the death penalty.
Police Officer Blake Snyder represented the very best our society has to offer and he was murdered in the line of duty by a coward who represented the very worst.
While we share the same thoughts as Elizabeth, Mr. McCulloch is the longest tenured prosecutor in the State of Missouri and we trust his decision. We remain confident Mr. McCulloch will ensure the case against this murderous coward is vigorously prosecuted and the maximum prison sentence allowed by law is sought.
As we have done in the past, the St. Louis County Police Association will stand behind the Snyder family and support them in this very difficult journey.”
