Brown’s Family Asks for Body Cameras for All Police Officers (11/25/14)
Tuesday, November 25, 2014 | Comments

Following the Nov. 24 grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown earlier this year, Brown’s family announced a campaign to ensure that every U.S. police officer working the streets wears a body camera.

The short statement also asked for peaceful protests. Violence, looting, fires and gunshots erupted as anger broke out immediately after the decision.

Wilson is a white police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown on a street in Ferguson Aug. 9. Wilson reportedly testified that Brown approached and punched him before Wilson fired 12 shots.

Police officers in Ferguson were equipped with body-worn cameras donated by two companies shortly after the shooting occurred, according to a local news station.
