FERGUSON, MO (KPLR)- Following the decision of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting death, the teenager’s family released a statement.

From the Brown family:

“We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions.

While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change.  We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen.

Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera.

We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful.  Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction.

Let’s not just make noise, let’s make a difference.”

Michael Brown’s parents plan to speak at a news conference Tuesday at 11:00am at the Greater St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church.
