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

It shouldn't affect what you have. I was aware of that. Simply because I saw some cameras out yesterday, and I saw an attorney that was commenting about it and I heard about what it was.

But, you know, up until August 9th, he was an on duty police officer who made traffic stops and arrests and did other things other police officers do and so I would imagine, I've not looked, but I would imagine he has pending cases in our office.

How those are handled and what comes of those cases shouldn't be your concern. I will tell you that I do not believe, and I will look into this, but I do not believe that he will, I mean, I know he won't be testifying in front of this grand jury any more because you're only hearing this matter.

I don't know that, I can't say for sure he wouldn't be called to court or called to testify on anything else, but I think it is unlikely, but I don't know. I don't know that necessarily will have any impact on what you all are doing.

That's the best I can say about that. On for today we have a witness here, his name is He's going to tell you what he knows about this matter and , of course, has made previous statements so we're going to start out by listening to those statements. First statement was done on August 12th, and it was done by the County Police.

And, remember, as I said a lot of times when the police do a statement, then the FBI has to come along and do their own statement, so after we hear the statement by the County Police, we will hear a statement that was done by the FBI.

You all remember that last time I played that video that purportedly has comments made by , and then I was trying to play the audio back, and I thought then I might not have the right clip. So I straightened that out, so we may play that also later today if we have a gap in things.

We don't want you sitting here with nothing to do. We're going to keep you busy as long as you're willing to work.

you can turn off the recorder. The recording will be paused while we are playing the interview of that was done on August 9th by St. Louis County police detectives and that recording is contained on Grand Jury Exhibit Number 17. And, pause that recording.

(This is the interview of being played at this time.)
