“Michael Brown’s family is beyond outraged at the devious way the police chief has chosen to disseminate piece meal information in a manner intended to assassinate the character of their son, following such a brutal assassination of his person in broad daylight,” the statement said. Police in Ferguson, Mo., said teenager Michael Brown was the “primary suspect” in an alleged convenience store robbery – police say is shown in these surveillance stills – shortly before Brown was shot by a police officer. “There is nothing based on the facts that have been placed before us that can justify the execution style murder of their child by this police officer as he held his hands up, which is the universal sign of surrender,” the statement said. source

 
The statement was attributed to Brown’s family and the family’s legal team, which is headed by Benjamin Crump. The statement noted that the release included stills allegedly from the store’s surveillance video showing a suspect looming over the store employee, adding that the department has declined “to release the photographs of the officer that executed him.”
