(Reuters) - Attorneys for the family of Michael Brown blasted the grand jury process that led to a decision not to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed the black teenager in August.

Benjamin Crump and Anthony Gray said in a news conference that the process had been unfair because the prosecutor on the case had a conflict of interest and because Wilson was not cross-examined. They said a special prosecutor should have been appointed.
