Two reportes were arrested amidst the turmoil in Ferguson while reporting on the protest to the Michael Brown shooting. The reporters say they were assaulted by the Ferguson police and then taken to jail. One of the reporters contacted the police chief who then made some calls and eventually the reporters were released.
The reports said the Ferguson police didn’t cooperate by giving names and badge numbers of the arresting officers. This story is just an example of the injustice that is currently taking place in Ferguson. It is also being reported that tear gas is not only being used against the protesters but also against news reporters.
