11-24-14 - ( Fox News ) - Michael Brown‘s cousin Ty Pruitt reacted to the Ferguson grand jury decision tonight by talking about police brutality against African-Americans in general and how the media framed his cousin in particular. Pruitt said he was “disgusted” with the whole process, especially with the media coverage that “dehumanized” him. He said that by framing the shooting as “young black teenager” shot by white cop, the media has basically “divided our society to take sides.” Smith asked him what the family thinks of the decision. Pruitt said it was “unjust” and that nobody’s talking about the broader issues at play here, like how the confrontation began in the first place and how Wilson “did not act with a level head.”
