A simple Facebook discussion about the aftermath of the Ferguson Grand Jury decision led me to record a quick conversation with my brother, Attorney Wilson Copeland, co-founding partner of Grier Copeland and Williams Law Firm in my native Detroit, Michigan. This seven minute interview may shed some light on the prospective of the Grand Jury process that led to Prosecutor Robert McCulloch's announcement that the Grand Jury would NOT indict Officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown Shooting of August 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri.
Prosecutor McCulloch announced the decision on Monday night November 24, 2014 at 8:00 pm Central Standard Time.
Attorney Wilson Copeland is one of the top lawyers in the state of Michigan and is a graduate of Fisk University and Vanderbilt Law School. He has practiced law in Michigan for more than 40 years. He was also inducted in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers some years ago. He and his wife, Deborah, have been married for more than 40 years and have one daughter, Lauren. Attorney Copeland is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and he is a Guardsman. He is also a lifetime member of St. Paul AME Church and serves on the Trustee Board.
To me...he's my big brother who makes me very proud every day.

You make me proud,I agree with U 100%.After listening to the police officers interview on ABC,his justification for the shooting would have been very difficult to prove to any jury. Take care BROTHER and keep up the work!!!

Having served on a Grand Jury, I agree that the evidence provided the Grand Jury was quite differen from any evidence I ever heard. The evidence made it very hard for the Grand Jury to pronounce a convictionl.

Thank you, Rosemarie. You are validated my brother's comments and add credibility to why so many across the country are outraged at the Ferguson Grand Jury's decision.
