It appears as though the Ferguson police department has a real problem with reporters covering the actions police are taking against the civilians living in Ferguson, MO. The other day they prevent media coverage via helicopter by getting a "No Fly Zone" over Ferguson and now they have resorted to targeting journalists with tear gas so they can disassemble their television equipment.
Sounds 3rd world, huh?
It gets even more 3rd world when you include the fact that Ferguson, MO police are also arresting St. Louis City Alderman, Antonio French, who was sitting in his car, because he didn't listen" to them.
... and arresting journalists for not getting out of McDonalds quickly enough ... I'd hate to see how they treat journalists not getting out of a donut shop quick enough.
It seems Ferguson police are afraid to have journalists videotape the actions they (police) are taking against their civilian population -- but why? Are they trying to intimidate journalists so they stop their coverage? Do they have something up their sleeves they want to do to their civilians that they don't want journalists to document?
What are they trying to hide? WTF is going on here?
Are Ferguson police intentionally trying to give the illusion that the civilians in their city deserve to be treated as violent criminals?
