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

Okay. So now he's still laying on his stomach and now we have an image of the left forearm and we can see an injury here. I think if you go on we can actually get a better picture of that. Perhaps, okay, a little bit better here.

So we actually call this a superficial incised wound. In our opinion, a sharp force injury, it is not blunt.

Whatever caused this was something sharp, like a piece of glass, a piece of jagged metal, a knife, something like that, something sharp. The way that we can tell that is the edges of this are very clean. We don't see any abrasion along it.

I think what you see here that is kind of dark along the edge of this is actually some vital reaction, he is getting a little inflammation from it. It doesn't take long for a wound to become inflamed. I think that is what we are seeing here.

And again, it is a little dry, it is eight days later, he has been embalmed, so it is a little different than it would look during the first autopsy.

And then along the same trajectory right here, you can pick up kind of a faint scratch along with it. So again, this is consistent, in our opinion, with something sharp.
