Quote:
The Huffington Post's Ryan J. Reilly and the Washington Post's Wesley Lowery were arrested Wednesday evening while covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri after the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, who was shot by a police officer last week. The journalists were released unharmed, but their detentions highlighted the town's ramped up police presence, which has left numerous residents injured by rubber bullets, pepper spray and tear gas during protests held every night after Brown's death.

SWAT officers roughed up the reporters inside a McDonald's, where both journalists were working. Reilly snapped a photo, prompting cops to request his identification.

"The officer in question, who I repeatedly later asked for his name, grabbed my things and shoved them into my bag," said Reilly, who appeared on MSNBC's "All In with Chris Hayes" shortly after his release to recount the arrest. "He used his finger to put a pressure point on my neck."

Also ordering everyone to turn cameras off, and have ordered a no-fly zone.

Can't start shooting civilians with the live, hot ammunition until the cameras are off, duh.

You know it's getting crazy if the cops are targeting cameras.


Makes you think.


I hope the citizens give them a god damn fight.

From my understanding the cops are harassing camera crews because the presence of national media is making the crowd act more rowdy. I'm not saying it's okay for the police to tell the media to fukk off, but I also don't think the cops have anything sinister in mind.
The way things are spiraling in Ferguson, though, I won't be surprised if Marshall Law is enforced.

The media is so irresponsible. This is what happens when you keep telling people stuff like "the police are murdering black people in the streets. they're out to get you." when we actually don't know at all what happened.

The media stirring up trouble.
