but accused michael brown. that is the motion of it. we tried to move all the focus on because of say and nobody is going to condone violence. people against0 of noto do have to geta sense from the prosecutor of what the votes were? >> when you come to put on your case. you do not put on your worst case. you put on your best case. does anybody think he put on his best case? why
change the rules? for 20 years or so he was the prosecutor he did grand juries. he recommended charges. he did not go dump everything out. he said he did it this way because it was fair. for the other 28 years he was on fair? to not change the rules on lost.us >> >> and washington president obama awarded a prison hundred freedom to the protesters. the killers were not indicted by the state. >> last night as a cover the protest in front of the ferguson police station. all of the
defense weapon i was there. >> expected to be stopped there by the police. it was wide open. we saw no state troopers. >> d. fink the authorities let ferguson burdo you think the authorities let ferguson berliburn? >> to the first part of your question because i think the second question has been answered. the first part of your question. most of the media if not all that are here. it has been a legacy of his civil rights movement that you all is said to go to the federal government and cannot depend on states.
>> we are not in a strange place we hope to meet would be in a different place. it is not strange. i think it is interesting that on the day that there were given a medal of freedom was the day that he decided and the dark hour to announce his state's decision on the michael brown case. and eight years ago today shawm bill was killed by police in new york. all of these things come together. i say that many of us this is not our first ordeal. we will deal with this. >> completely
inappropriate. god forbid your child is killed and then you get that. in the manner it was announced and some put a camera in your face. what would your immediate reaction? to not condemn them for being human. i think michael bronzino has stated very clearly that they want people to be safe in a responsible peaceful manner. we're not going to keep dwelling on this because we're trying to focus on the issue of getting the system corrected so we do not have people feeling so frustrated that they have to go marched throughout the night for simple justice. >> there is another
way. other than to explode and other than to have not reached like that. many of us are condemned. we're the vehicle to try to address these things. we are considered incendiary when in many ways we're the ones trying to show constructive ways to get justice. after you burn stuff down, then what? >> if you burn down buildings you achieve what? >> a fire. he did not get justice from michael brown. that is why we are here this morning. manny the system to meet us halfway. >> we condemn the violence and looting from last night. we also condemn the filofax that happened against michael braun.
>> you of the election in this conference of the family of michael brown. mom with civil-rights leadealong with cil rights leader. >> to the grand jury system. prosecutors of sole discretion over those proceedings and how they're conducted. sometimes they are saying that this particular prosecutor choreographed the proceedings to achieve a certain outcome. >> that is a valid criticism in the aspect that you can criticize us. >> the evidence is put on as put on by the prosecutor. they have a point in saying that the police officer was not really cross- examined. the other side of the coin is that is not how our system has been working since gone. this is a way to
charge someone with a crime or it is a way for a grand jury, the people sitting there to decide that there is not even enough probable cause. that is apparently the decision that they came to. the fact of the matter is they did not seem to understand. there was not a trial. and the simply an agreement by and longfellow americans that are called the same way as a regular jury to determine whether or not there were even grounds to charge. they found on their own death or not any. to the prosecutor cross- examine the police department? probably not as strongly as most people would have liked. there are no defense attorneys there. there are no other attorneys but the prosecutors. they
have a great there. the system has to change completely if we're going to put people in there to cross-examine. is just historical. >> the cow's back to english common law. >> the of the naval to question jurors. >> we have heard all of the evidence. we felt pretty much in agreement on this case. >> that is up to the jurors. their names have not been released if they come forward and want to talk, they certainly can talk. >> we will have to see whether or not any of them are going to talk. >> obviously they cannot even get nine to charge at this particular point. this prosecutor right room what he
did is something that none of us have ever seen before. albans only has released all of the transcripts and all of the medical records from this. i'm sure his hopes are that that will settle everything now. your findings of people are seeing some people wish that there is a trial. this system of laws. . once the supreme court finally said something. we're all stuck with is whether we like it or not. i think, for if i may just say this i think what we're going to see out of this and i'm so tired of the use of the word transparency is easily seen which usually seen in political campaigns. that is a factor you have a public defender, a former judge who has almost all minorities as
the public defender. >> just in two weeks the chief judge is having a meeting for the media and some of the public to go over the details of having cameras in the courtrooms and cook county which i think will give the people who are looking for transparency the ability to see whether or not somebody is getting a fair trial here it i applaud those things. i think that is something that could count the is in the forefront. there's a lot of things that have to be done. >> >> through >> >> through bureaucratic.
nearly 80 people in ferguson and st. louis or arrested last night. in a decision to not indict the police officer shot and killed michael braun. about 300 protesters clashed with police. officers in riot gear used tear gas cupper spray and bean bags. demonstrators burned more than 20 buildings as well as two police cars. they also blocked traffic on a major interstate. more national guard soldiers are under way in case things flare up again.

witnesses' memories and seek a grand jury proceedings. it would just be transparent. >> the calls for robotic cameras brought about by the family's reaction to the grand jury decision. they're the only people who have heard and examined every witness and every piece of evidence. it is very unusual. >> because the eyes of the country are of the matter part of the evidence made public after the decision appeared to show him in a medical examination after the shot and killed on armed teenager. one officer wilson testified said after his cup brown there is a confrontation during which wilson was punched in the face. further testified that he and brown scuffled and and out of the police car. saying he felt like he was fighting with
wrestler hulk hogan. all of this plus dna evidence was presented to the jury for consideration. >> decisions on a matter as serious as charging individual with the crime simply cannot be decided on anything less than a complete critical examination if >> the the thing else is not justice. anything else is not justice. >> from witnesses who said they saw the shooting. many of the same witnesses at mellon said it did not actually see the shooting. some are running frofor cover. the 12th person jury consisted of six white men. >> determined that no probable cause exists to file any charges against officer wilson >> demonstrations
popping up in cities across the country reaction to the decision has become a center of much debate. >> the scientific evidence examined by the grand jury combined with the witness' statement supported and substantiated by the physical evidence tells the actor and tragic story of what happened. >> conflicting testimony from 60 witnesses to testify under oath about what they saw or need to be true. >> after all of that the jury was able to reach a vote not to take the case to trial. the decision has proven to be controversial. it is nonetheless the wall. >> the attorneys for officer barron wilson also issued a statement. they said officer wilson followed his training and follow the law. we would encourage anybody who wants to express an opinion to do so in a respectful and peaceful manner. >> protesters are packed inside of city hall angry about the number of
