Brown family lawyer confident Officer Wilson will be convicted

(CNN) – For the family of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old shot dead by a white police officer, what does justice look like? If there is a thorough hearing, and evidence is brought before the grand jury, and there is not enough to indict the officer, is that justice?

No, says a family lawyer.

"When I sit there and I watch the video that happened that day, and see that kid laying in the middle of the street, when I listen to the witnesses, all of them, who tell a very similar story as to what happened in this case, and when I looked at his body as we did this autopsy on this kid, and to see how he was shot in his head in a manner that could only be an execution style ... I believe this guy should have been arrested a long time ago," says attorney Daryl Parks, co-counsel for the Brown family.

"I have every confidence in the world that he's going to be convicted for what he did to Michael Brown," said Parks.
