Ferguson: Brown family lawyers slam grand jury decision

<p>Lawyers speaking on behalf of Michael Brown Jr’s family have slammed a grand jury’s decision not to pursue criminal charges against police officer Darren Wilson. </p> <p>During a press conference, Benjamin Crump and Anthony Gray labelled the process “unfair”, accusing the prosecutor of having a conflict of interest. </p> <p>Speaking about the information provided on the case, Crump said:<br /> “We went through as much of it as we could and saw how completely unfair the process was. We object (as) publically and loudly as we can – and on behalf of Michael Brown Jr’s family – that this process is broken. The process should be indicted.”</p> <p>The Brown family did not comment. Crump spoke on their behalf, saying the family <a href="http://www.euronews.com/2014/11/25/violence-erupts-as-ferguson-police-wont-face-charges-over-teenager-s-death/">rejects violence and calls for calm</a>.</p> <p>Civil Rights activist Reverand Al Sharpton called the grand jury decision “not surprising” and pushed for a thorough federal investigation.</p>
