CNN aired a video this morning of Michael Brown's stepfather, Louis Head, yelling, "Burn this bitch down,” last night in Ferguson, Missouri.
Head's statement came after the announcement that a grand jury in Clayton, Missouri, had voted not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for Michael Brown’s death, noted Mediaite.com (video below).
The video began with Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden telling the crowd, "I been here my whole life, I never had to go through nothing like this."
After McSpadden broke down in tears, Head, wearing an "I Am Mike Brown" white and green T-shirt, hugged her.
Head repeatedly told the crowd, "Burn this bitch down!”
Earlier in the evening, the family got the news in a hotel room in St. Louis, reports USA Today.
"I know God will prevail. We know it's in God's hands," said McSpadden while praying before the announcement.
"God will have justice no matter what," added the Browns' family attorney, Benjamin Crump.
When Crump got the phone call from the prosecutor's office about the grand jury's decision, McSpadden screamed: "I do want to meet with him right now. What do you mean no indictment?"
Crump told USA Today that the Brown family is hoping that a federal investigation will hold Officer Wilson and the Ferguson Police Department accountable.
