Brown Family Releases Statement Following Grand Jury Decision

Shortly after a Ferguson grand jury announced that it would not indict officer Darren Wilson in the August death of Michael Brown, Brown’s family released the following statement:

“We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions. While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen. Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera. We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction. Let’s not just make noise, let’s make a difference.”

The family will appear at a press conference, scheduled for Tuesday at noon ET.
