The Grand Jury has been questioned by the National Bar Association and deems the evidence before them, which could reach to a supposition that Darren Wilson should not be tried and indicated for the death of Michael Brown caused by shooting. The President of the National Bar Association, Pamela J. Meanes conveys her disappointment with the Grand Jury’s final verdict. She made it clear that charges will be pressed against Officer Darren Wilson by the U.S Department of Justice. She also made it quite clear that the National Bar Association will not rest until justice is served to Michael Brown and his family.
Another question that is being held against the jury by the National Bar Association is the presence of nine White members against three African-Americans in Ferguson, Missouri, where about sixty-seven percent of the population is composed of African-Americans.

President Meanes asked the people of Ferguson, Missouri to stay calm as the National Bar Association will do everything to support the family of Michael Brown. She further said that all the legal plans have been placed into action.
The National Bar Association hosted a number of meetings over the past few months to inform the attendees of the Fourth Amendment constitutional rights, how the behavior of the citizens should be when they get face to face with a police officer and how they must respond in such a situation. Pamela Meanes states that Michael Brown’s death was the last hurdle but a catalyst to fasten the process of such issues being addressed against racial bias and inequality in patrolling and controlling, violence against the members of the minority community and the justice system.
It has been requested by the family of Michael Brown that McCullough, the District Attorney should step aside and a special prosecutor must be assigned to the investigation of this case in order to build the confidence of the community with the assurance that a complete, through and in-depth investigation would be conducted by the grand jury to get to the bottom of the heartbreaking death of 18 year old, Michael Brown in shooting. The final decision of the grand jury consents the fear expressed by many people, months ago that impartial and unfair investigation will be conducted.
The President Meanes said that the National Bar Association is not ready to resolute about its plea for justice. While the association is dissatisfied and thwarted with the final ruling of the jury, the National Bar Association is supporting peace in every corner all over the world.
