Missouri state police Captain Ronald Johnson on Thursday walked with protesters in Ferguson, Mo. and talked with them about the situation.

Johnson took control of law enforcement in Ferguson on Thursday and said that he would review resources following concerns over police response to protests in the town.

Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery was at the protest and documented Johnson's interactions with community members.

Cpt. Johnson of Highway Patrol hugging residents as they pass during march. "I grew up here!" he notes.
"When I see a young lady cry because of fear of this uniform, that's a problem. We need to solve that."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
