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

When he turned around, he said stop again. When Michael took another step, he said stop. As he hit the street, after he said stop, he fired. That's when he started staggering around. You could tell he got hit the way his body jerked, okay. And as he was coming forward, trying to keep his balance, I guess keep from falling, he couldn't stand. He was trying to get hisself in a position, I believe, so that he could stand up.

As he took those steps, the officer took about two, three steps back. As he did that at the same time, he yelled stop again. Michael was then, you could tell he was about ready to fall. At the angle of his body, torso practically straight, knees wobbly, but the torso was almost at a 45 degree angle, his hands are slowly coming down.

His hands were coming down?
