Ferguson, Missouri: Tear Gas, Rubber Bullets, Two Reporters Arrested

There is another night of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri in St. Louis County, in the wake of the police killing of the unarmed Mike Brown, this weekend.

Police are responding very aggressively to predominantly peaceful demonstrators.

Police are in riot gear and camouflage uniforms.

Moments later:


  1. STL County Police Chief Belmar: "We've done everything we can to demonstrate a remarkable amount of restraint."
    "Don't push us cos we're are close to the edge"

  2. A lot of people say the police are becoming too militarized. I disagree. They are much, much worse. I used to be in the Marines and as much as there is to criticize about the military, if you roughed up a reporter you'd face court marshal and the penalty would be severe. I bet these officers won't even get put on paid leave.
