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

Yeah, that can happen. However, see in the old days the way we did things was the mantra is you got to find, interview all the witnesses, knock on doors, telephones, whatever in the first 48 hours. And you got to get all the stories locked down in the 48 hours and that was the police mantra, or shoe leather.

Now oftentimes we're going to wait a little bit until all the DNA and the other tests come through before we interview people during the time they can also make up stories.

In answer to your question, I think that if the procedure is to interview people right away, and then the autopsy findings can be released within two or three days after that, it covers both bases. I just think in my experience with families, that the transparency in situations where families don't trust what's going on.

When we have seen riot situations in New York City, in Harlem, or specific ones, I'm thinking about the fact that we said yes, the death of the innocent person was caused by a police bullet and not by one of the snipers. Immediately calms things down. They are going to continue, they know we're not going to cover it. I don't know, that's my feeling as a physician.

: I'm trying to stay on topic. I have a question for you and I know we have a time crunch as well. In regards to, we have been here quite awhile already, my question is going back to the question I just asked you. You kind of explained why the family reached out to you.
