Lawyer: Michael Brown “Executed” While Surrendering

The family of a black teenager killed over a week ago in Ferguson, Missouri believe the police officer involved should be arrested, their lawyer stated on Monday.

According to the family’s lawyer, the preliminary results of an autopsy on the body of Michael Brown convinced the teen’s family the officer should be taken into custody.

“[The autopsy] confirms what the witnesses said, that this was an execution. That’s what the witnesses said from day one,” the family’s lawyer Benjamin Crump told the press on Monday.

The preliminary results of the examination indicate Brown was shot six times, including twice in the head.

“His mother asked the questions that … lawyers could not answer –’What else do we need to get them to arrest the killer of my child?” Crump stated.

An assistant pathologist involved in the autopsy stated the preliminary results indicate Brown was killed by the head shots, but don’t settle the question of what the teen was doing as he was gunned down.

“We don’t know if that means he was rushing at the officer, or if he was giving up,” Professor Shawn Parcells told CTV.

However, Crump stated on Monday the evidence matches eye witness accounts that Brown was surrendering when he was shot. “It’s obvious his hands were up at some point because you can tell how the bullet goes in and out,” Crump told USA Today.

Brown’s body will undergo a second autopsy by a federal examiner. The case is also being investigated by the FBI, along with a separate probe by the Justice Department.

The latter is investigating the case for civil rights violations.
