It's not even dark yet in Ferguson, Missouri, but police are again cracking down on journalists and elderly Holocaust survivors.

Hedy Epstein, 90+ Holocaust survivor, just arrested in #Ferguson http://t.co/...
Everything that the Ferguson police have done over the past week has been so counterproductive and over-aggressive that I'm beginning to wonder if the arrest of journalists and protestors is just part of an ongoing city grift. And I'm not the only one.

Getty photog Scott Olson arrested for reportedly crossing street too slowly. #Ferguson #MikeBrown http://t.co/...

Can't block streets or sidewalks when protesting. Can't cross the street "too slowly". Jaywalking gets you shot. All Ferguson law enforcement apparently revolves around ensuring smooth traffic flow.
