U.N. committee to question United States officials following Brown testimony

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A group of 10 Missourians have been in Geneva, Switzerland since Monday talking to the United Nations Committee Against Torture about the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Brown’s parents testified to the U.N. on Tuesday. On Thursday, U.N. officials will ask Americans questions they have following the Brown’s testimony.

Attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing the Brown family, says Thursday’s question and answer session is part of the overall U.N. process.

The accountability of police for excessive use of force, cutting back on giving military equipment to police and creating the end to racial profiling are just some of the issues the U.N. plans to discuss with the United States.

Crump says the group’s ultimate goal does not stop once they come back to America on Friday. They would like an official from the U.N. in Ferguson once the Grand Jury decision is announced.
