Wilson statement

25 Nov, 2014

Wilson’s lawyers release a statement:

From the onset, we have maintained and the grand jury agreed that Officer Wilson’s actions on August 9 were in accordance with the laws and regulations that govern the procedures of an officer. Based on the evidence and witness testimony, the grand jury collectively determined there was no basis for criminal charges against Officer Wilson. Law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions. Officer Wilson followed his training and followed the law.

Wilson’s attorney, Neil Bruntrager, described the past few days as ‘tense’ for his client, who has reportedly received a number of death threats

(Not being indicted) is a brief respite, but certainly not the end of things for him.
