Reporters documenting the protests in Ferguson, Mo., were told by police late Wednesday evening to cease recording, just moments before police launched an attack on demonstrators using LRAD sound cannons, flash bang grenades, tear gas canisters and a hail of rubber bullets.
“You are no longer peacefully assembling,” a member of the police announced via loudspeaker to a crowd assembled in front of the burnt down QuikTrip convenience store. “You must leave. Return to your vehicles. Return to your homes. You will be subject to arrest if you fail to comply… Leave to your homes immediately.”
