Count former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as one who would like to see the prosecutors in Ferguson, Missouri charge some of the witnesses with perjury! The GOP firebrand said that some of the testimony was obviously and completely refuted by other testimony and the evidence and that those who apparently lied should face prosecution.
Rudy Giuliani: Here’s the amazing thing. I read some of the testimony today. If you look at witness number ten, not identified by name or by race, but I’m pretty sure an African-American from the discussion.
