ST. LOUIS (AP) - Attorneys for Michael Brown's family say the process that led to a white officer not being indicted in the fatal shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old was unfair and broken.

Attorney Benjamin Crump said at a news conference Tuesday that attorneys objected to St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch's decision to call a grand jury and not appoint a special prosecutor.

Crump also said, "We could see what the outcome was going to be, and that is what occurred last night."

Attorney Anthony Gray said the decision was a "direct reflection of the presentation of the evidence," and criticized what he called "cynicism" in the questions found in the grand jury documents.

The Rev. Al Sharpton said McCulloch's news conference "went out of his way" to discredit Michael Brown.
