(AP)– The family of Michael Brown, who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has released a statement condemning the shooting deaths of two New York City officers.

The statement posted Saturday on Twitter by the Parks & Crump law firm says Brown’s family rejects “any kind of violence directed toward members of law enforcement. It cannot be tolerated.”

It calls on citizens to “work together to bring peace to our communities.”

The brief statement concludes saying, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the officers’ families during this incredibly difficult time.”

A Missouri grand jury refused to indict the white officer who shot Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old.

    We’re supposed to believe that a family that was publicly recorded saying “Burn this b#$!h down!” Now suddenly decries illegal actions “done” in the name of justice for their son’s death as well as Eric Garner? Please.

    Oh please! You really think we’re stupid enough to fall for your “fake condolences” written by your lawyer?! As I recall you said “Burn this b#tch #ss down!” You’re secretly celebrating right now. Stop lying.

    The Stepfather said that you did not hear that from the Father or the Mother not to say they were not thinking that.
    The Father asked for peace and the Stepfather incited the people..
