Sorry, there was no trial. No proper vetting of witnesses, which would include cross-examination, and thus nothing real proven (or disproven). We only know that the Grand Jury did not believe there was sufficient evidence to indict.

I appreciate that you feel a certain way, but at least be intellectually honest enough to respect the opinions of those that do not feel all of the facts are known... and thus respect the rights of black football players, many of whom grew up in inner-cities with their own individual experiences with the police. Some of that direct experience might be consistent with the perception of Brown's interaction.

still does not appear that the witness testimony was such that it could be concluded wilson did nothing illegal, thereby necessitating a trial to ferret out the truthHere’s a breakdown of the data we found:
More than 50 percent of the witness statements said that Michael Brown held his hands up when Darren Wilson shot him. (16 out of 29 such statements)
Only five witness statements said that Brown reached toward his waist during the confrontation leading up to Wilson shooting him to death.
More than half of the witness statements said that Brown was running away from Wilson when the police officer opened fire on the 18-year-old, while fewer than one-fifth of such statements indicated that was not the case.
There was an even split among witness statements that said whether or not Wilson fired upon Brown when the 18-year-old had already collapsed onto the ground.
Only six witness statements said that Brown was kneeling when Wilson opened fire on him. More than half of the witness statements did not mention whether or not Brown was kneeling.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
