Brown Attorney Rips Prosecutor: ‘First-Year Law Student Would Have Done Better!’

The attorneys for Michael Brown‘s family spoke early this afternoon in reaction to the Ferguson grand jury decision. And Benjamin Crump kicked things off declaring, “The process should be indicted… because of the continuous systematic results that is yielded by this process.”

He decried prosecutor Bob McCulloch, saying he has a “symbiotic relationship” with the police so he was not the best man to sit in judgment of an officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager.

And that wasn’t even the brunt of what Crump had to say about McCulloch:

“[Wilson] testified for four hours, and you had to scratch your head, kind of like we all did, to say, ‘When is the prosecutor going to cross-examine the killer of an unarmed person?’ A first-year law student would have done a better job of cross-examining a killer of an unarmed person than the prosecutor’s office did!”

“When was his veracity ever challenged?” he asked. “When was his credibility ever challenged?”

Attorney Fred Gray also spoke, and he argued that the prosecutor did not “present the evidence in a manner to secure an indictment.”
