Police Violence In Ferguson, Missouri: The Big Picture
As you may have heard, police and Swat teams in Ferguson, Missouri have fired tear gas and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters, and outlawed peaceful assembly.
Police are also using stun grenades and ear-damaging military sound cannons against peaceful protesters.
Reporters are among those shot at with rubber bullets and tear gas, assaulted and arrested. Glenn Greenwald notes:
Last night, two reporters, The Washington Post‘s Wesley Lowery and The Huffington Post‘s Ryan Reilly, were arrested and assaulted while working from a McDonald’s in Ferguson. The arrests were arbitrary and abusive, and received substantial attention — only because of their prominent platforms, not, as they both quickly pointed out upon being released, because there was anything unusual about this police behavior.
