Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Michael Brown’s family, said on ABC’s “This Week” that he doesn’t worry about due process for Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot his client’s son. (RELATED: FBI: Ferguson Grand Jury Decision ‘Will Likely’ Lead To Violence)

HOST GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: It sounds like you’ve prejudged what the grand jury is going to say. You’ve already decided the process is unfair?

CRUMP: No, the process is completely unfair. 99 percent of the time, police officers aren’t charged when they kill young people of color. So when you look at the face of those overwhelming statistics and you think that we are upset because…

STEPHANOPOULOS: But let me ask the question — let me ask, what if there was a struggle. What if there was a struggle for the gun and the evidence shows that? 

CRUMP: You know what, in America we have a constitution; you have a right to trial by jury. And I have no doubt if they were to indict the police officer, he would be guaranteed his full constitutional rights of innocent until proven guilty. He would get every benefit of the doubt. I don’t worry about the due process for Officer Wilson. I worry about the due process for the little black boy dead on the ground.
