More KARG.com Live Stream looking in at the public sphere tonight in Ferguson.
11 Things to know about the Michael Brown Shooting
What the outside agitator situation looks like:
5:49 PM PT: nothing live yet but there is an archived spot from one of last night's protesters
6:10 PM PT: now live and they've done their mike check
6:12 PM PT: camera position across the street from last night compass North is to your left
6:14 PM PT: you may need to open the site in a different browser window or refresh
6:17 PM PT: while Captain Ron Johnson has asked that protesters march during the day without insisting on a curfew, several groups insisted they would march tonight
6:20 PM PT: they're going to relocate their feed again position appears to have the same general configuration although if the cops are to be believed, more constraints on camera position or media movement will be enforced
6:23 PM PT: a useful comparison is the cable network feeds since the Chris Hayes Twitter feed and even the hassles CNN's Don Lemon and Jake Tapper were getting, puts the Live Stream in perspective
6:28 PM PT: answering the taser question for cops' standard equipment in light of the cognitively impaired man who was shot dead by two cops earlier today because he was brandishing a butter knife
People asking also, why not tase him? Almost all STLPD on scene, though, don't have tasers. A few cops confirmed to me not standard issue

6:37 PM PT: yes audio is funky at times - blame the intertoobs
7:05 PM PT: everybody's on the clock - demo begins
7:08 PM PT: compass north is to the right
7:14 PM PT: sidewalk commands coming earlier and it did seem like they turned the LRADs on for a brief moment in the distance
7:29 PM PT: audio problems prevail at KARG ( they seem to have a problem with their two mikes seems like a switcher issue.... looking for alterate
7:38 PM PT: put in second screen but it has multiple audio feeds, will try to fix it but there are at least options.....
And on the 9th night, there was the first "turn down for what?" chant #Ferguson

7:56 PM PT: police car staging appears like last night so if they're on schedule, they should be moving to the other end of the street soon
8:12 PM PT: cops are reinforcing the "march on the sidewalk" directives and are letting the line of vehicles remain longer
8:21 PM PT: a few network satellite uplink trucks are now visible but probably have been there all evening
8:35 PM PT: if one is bored watching this demo, a useful game is "guess the undercover cops in the crowd"
8:42 PM PT: if pattern holds things will get more serious in an hour or so.... police cordon and the SWAT truck will make their appearance. Hopefully this evening will be more uneventful, although if you read my other diary, we'll know more if/when Captain Johnson does a presser.
9:36 PM PT: apparently a 9am meeting tomorrow is set by community leaders so the primary protest group seems to be breaking up... we'll see what else happens.....
9:40 PM PT: Bob McCullough's gonna have an interesting time tomorrow - more interesting will be the county police presence
9:47 PM PT: and now the Sheriff's officers are out with their bean bag shotguns and air support is hovering
10:52 PM PT: so apparently violence erupted again and it did seem curious that some communications was disrupted at the same time. The subsequent presser should reveal more
10:55 PM PT: Looked like a police charge of some kind --- perhaps in pursuit of specific perpetrators
