FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - A bar association that represents black lawyers and judges wants the state of Missouri to revoke the license of the former Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old.

The National Bar Association has asked the Missouri Department of Public Safety to revoke Darren Wilson’s license in response to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

A St. Louis County grand jury decided to not indict Wilson, who is white, on criminal charges in the death of Brown, who was black. Wilson subsequently resigned from the Ferguson department, and his attorney has said Wilson doesn’t plan to again work as a police officer.

The legal group seeking Wilson’s license revocation is headed by Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump.
