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

Let me tell you this. In any actual criminal trial, the report of the medical examiner, the police reports, any reports that you all have been g1ven 1n your investigation, none of those or admissible 1n a trial because the report itself is considered hearsay.

The testimony is the evidence in the case. So has now, typically we have a report before the witness testifies and we may use that report to prepare us for their testimony, and then we may use that report if they testify differently than what the report says certainly, but in this case, we didn't have that report in advance.

If we had it and it was a trial, we couldn't let the jury see it anyway, but that's something, again, you guys are go1ng to have to talk about. During this break, we'll go and do, we'll contact somebody right now. If we get it great, if we don't get it, you are going to have to decide if you want to wait for the report, okay. And that will be the decision you all can make amongst yourselves during the break or lunch or what have you. Okay.

Anything else before we take a bathroom break or stretch your legs?
