Addressing a crowd outside of Ferguson, Reverend Al Sharpton announced that the federal government will move ahead full-force with new charges against Officer Darren Wilson.
Family attorney Benjamin Crump stood next to Sharpton as he addressed the media regarding the grand jury decision which he called “completely unfair” and “not consistent with the evidence.”
“Young people of color are being killed by police officers,” said Crump, before proposing a “Michael Brown Law.” The law would require police to wear body cameras for complete “transparency.”
“This process is broken,” said Crump. “This process should be indicted. Lets be very honest about this process. We have the local prosecutor who has a symbiotic relationship with the local police. We could foresee what the outcome was going to be.”
When Crump finished, Sharpton addressed the media, saying he was “not surprised” at the outcome of the grand jury decision. “Three days after Michael Brown Jr. was killed, we had a major rally in this very church. We said that night, with his parents present, that we had little to no faith in the grand jury. We said that night that we wanted the federal government to come in. Last night, the appearance by the district attorney, made it clear to everyone why we had little faith in the prosecution,” said Sharpton.
The prosector went “out of his way” to “undermine the credibility of the witnesses” and “undermine the credibility of the victim” Sharpton said. “I’ve never seen a persecutor hold a press conference to discredit the victim.”
Sharpton revealed that he has called an “emergency civil rights leadership meeting in Washington, D.C. next week” to determine an “ongoing strategy” for dealing with racial issues. “We may have lost one round, but the fight is not over,” he said. “We took a blow last night, but that’s alright.”
Sharpton lauded the race rioters whom he said had been protesting “peacefully and non-violently” for “over 103 days.” He said, “If you’re on Michael Brown’s side, you walk with dignity. If you do anything to harm others, you’re on your own side.”
Sharpton made it clear that he would not stand for what he called a “miscarriage and a misuse of the grand jury system.” Michael Brown will be remembered by “new legislation and the upholding of laws that protect citizens in the country,” he said. “Let the record be clear: You have broken our hearts, but you have not broken our backs.”
