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

What I would like to at least begin explaining, and we talked to you about when you want to meet in the future. And we are going to accommodate you whatever time or date you would like to meet. Whatever you decide, if you want to meet, to continue to meet on Wednesdays because that's what you're used to, we will make this room available for you on Wednesdays, okay. We'll do something else with the new grand jury, they'll meet elsewhere.

So I would suggest that possibly over the lunch break today maybe talk amongst yourselves. During your lunch break it is not going to be recorded, you all can talk about amongst yourselves about future days.

And then maybe at the end of the day today or after the lunch, we are going to need a list of some dates. Those dates are not going to be made public, we're never going to discuss on the record in advance what dates, you know, you're going to be meeting, but we'll need to know so we can start scheduling people.

Keep in mind that unlike typical grand jury days, we cannot present evidence on this matter unless all 12 of you are present.

I know you all have the phone number for the grand jury. If you all make arrangements to meet on a particular day and then, you know, somebody gets up in the morning and they're sick, they've got the flu, you're going to need to call as soon as possible so we can try to call people and head them off if they haven't already left their homes if one of you can't make it, then we're not going to be able to hear anything that day, okay?

So the alternates, alternates will not be called in on this, is that my understanding?
