The transcripts of the Grand Jury testimonies about the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Oh, you are right. Note taking. You take, as you know, all the notes that you want. Write down anything and everything. If a thought occurs to you, you want to talk to the witness, take all the notes that you want. The notes, of course, can't leave here. They are your notes and your notes alone.

Fellow grand jurors won't see your notes and you won't see their notes. At the end of the day or end of the session, the notes will be collected and they will be secured. Any evidence that is presented to you, physical evidence, of course, also will be collected and it will be secured. We have highly secure evidence lockers within the complex here. All of that will be that.

At the end of that, you can use your notes for any deliberation when everything is finished. At the end, just so you know, there are going to be massive amounts of information and physical items that are coming here in the next month. You're not going to remember everything. The witness today testifies, you're not going to remember that a month from now, but all of that and the transcripts will all be available and you'll have as long as you need, as long as you want to go through everything again before you start your deliberations. While you are doing deliberations, all of that is available.

Unlike a trial jury where you have to send a note out to the judge and the judge would decide if you get something or you don't get something, that rule doesn't apply here. Everything will be here in the room with you and you will have access to all of it. You, of course, have access to your notes throughout all of that.

At the end of all of that, you won't have access to those notes, is that it?
