They cause trouble everywhere
But when you die and go to heaven
You find no policeman there”

Michael Brown family vow to fight on despite Darren Wilson's resignation

The family of Michael Brown will press on with legal action after the police officer who shot and killed their unarmed son resigned, their lawyer said on Sunday. ...

Benjamin Crump, the Brown family’s attorney, said the family was not satisfied with Wilson’s resignation. “The community expected this,” he told CBS. “The family greatly wanted to have the killer of their unarmed son held accountable. They really will look at every legal avenue.”

The family is considering a civil wrongful death lawsuit and is also championing proposed legislation to require police officers to wear video body cameras. The US Justice Department is also investigating possible civil and constitutional rights violations in Brown’s killing and has launched an investigation into the Ferguson police department.
