Michael Brown, Sr. is preparing himself, his family and a divided nation for what will surely be a controversial grand jury decision that will determine whether his son’s killer, Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, will be held accountable for gunning down the unarmed teen on August 9 of this year.

Brown said that regardless of what the grand jury decides, he does not want 18-year-old Michael Brown, Jr.’s death to be in vain and that lasting change must be sought for St. Louis and the surrounding areas.
My family and I are hurting, our whole region is hurting. I thank you for lifting your voices to end racial profiling and police intimidation — but hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son’s death to be in vain. I want it to lead to incredible change, positive change, change that makes the St. Louis region better for everyone. We live here together, this is our home. We’re stronger united. Continue to lift your voices with us and let’s work together to heal and to create lasting change for all people regardless of race. Thank you.
It has been over 100 days since Michael Brown, Jr.’s body was riddled with at least seven of Wilson’s bullets and left to bake in the sun for over four hours on the pavement of Ferguson’s Canfield Drive. Unrelenting protests in response have led to Ferguson being ground zero for a reinvigorated Civil Rights Movement.
Rumors have swirled for over a week that a grand jury decision is imminent.
