The family of Michael Brown, an American teenager who was shot dead by a police officer in a suburb of St. Louis, has released a new statement.
Here is an extract:
Michael Brown's family is beyond outraged at the devious way the police chief has chosen to disseminate piece mil [sic] information in a manner intended to assassinate the character of their son, following such a brutal assassination of his person in broad daylight.
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.
