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

And you all understand that at no time do I think would it be appropriate for you to ask his op1n1on as to whether there is probable cause to indict.

Also, you may recall that during testimony of certain witnesses they may have been asked questions about their opinion as to whether there was excess1ve force used and in those cases, those witnesses, if you recall, were all actual eyewitnesses to the incident. And so whether they have an opinion or not I think might be relevant, but given that Detective is not witness to the incident, I don't feel it is appropriate for you to ask him his opinion as to any of the issues in this case.

He's here to testify about the investigation and the facts that he's discovered and I leave it to you to determine the issues of law 1n this case.

Also, Detective after your testimony you indicated to me that I had asked you a question about whether or not the investigation you conducted in this case was any different than any other investigation you've done regarding use of force investigations, and I believe you testified Thursday that no, you have not done anything differently or something to that effect. And you told me that you wanted to clarify that; is that fair?
