Looks like the last of the live feeds are all back at the command/media post now.

Does anyone know if they're going to do another press conference or something?

Have you been listening to accounts for the past few days or do you get on for lolz? Citizens and Journalists have been saying that they are instructed to go left, they do, the LEOs then say "No - you were supposed to go right" and then they are detained and removed from the area. People of all walks of life report that there is not much you can do to avoid arrest.

Furthermore - Ferguson community leaders have said that happens all of the time.

But, alas, for two nights now you have been watching the same feeds and reading the same threads as all of us - if you are not convinced, nothing we say will change your mind.
Don't mind me and my annoying references to that silly First Amendment.


Everything I get from you is bashing the cops and I think that's the problem here. All I've been doing is supporting the cops to do their jobs and I don't know what LOLz are, i'm and adult, not a child. Like I said to the others and I'll say it to you directly so you can understand it as well, which you should already since you claim to know my standpoint.

YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO BONKERS AND EXPECT NO COPS TO BE INVOLVED AND TELL YOU TO LEAVE AN AREA. IF YOU'RE IN AN AREA WHERE THERE'S BAD APPLES CAUSING PROBLEMS, THEN YOU SHOULDN'T BE THERE. JUST LIKE JOHNSON IS SAYING NOW. IF COPS ARE TRYING TO RESTORE ORDER, AND THE PRESS IS IN THE WAY, THEY MOVE BACK TOO.

Since this is a conspiracy forum, they keep saying the protestors got shot, but not by police.
Any chance they could lie about that and get away with it?
Tim pool did describe the shots sounding like they came from the protestors,but the wheels are just turning right now


Tim clearly said he got hit with a ricocheted-rubber bullet. If he got hit with real ammo, he would have bled and gone to the hospital.

i can do all-caps too!

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS, DUDE. THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO RISK THEIR LIVES AND DIE TO REPORT A STORY. NO LEGAL PRESS SHOULD EVER BE ORDERED TO NOT REPORT LEO ACTIONS. PERIOD.

Some of these reporters have reported from declared war zones and have not been put in this position or treated this way.

I hope they never come for you, and people all chant how awesome it was that you just got busted for doing something you had every right to do? You have been nothing but pressing peoples buttons, and clearly enjoying it. Someone is going to be calling you out very soon. Unless they already have.

Moving on.

But for the point I was going to make.
There was a BBQ store, that was reported to be on fire. That fire was started by police canisters, there are confirmed reports of this on twitter but also MSM. Wow MSM reports something with some truth .. I am shocked!


He doesn't have a right to be in an area after police asked them to leave MULTIPLE times. CNN is live right now, they're not arrested, are they? Because they did what was asked as a journalist who was granted that right. CNN is talking to Johnson as I type this, on the street. SO, that leads me to believe the Fox guy did something wrong, as all these other reporters left with no issue, or are still out there.


I'm going to chime in that this is the first night that I have seen that much patience, tolerance or even warning after watching what has been occurring in Ferguson for the last week. Tonight was hugely different then previous.

As far as journalists who have been arrested in the last week, I can type up a quick list:

Wesley Lowery, Ryan J. Reilly, Rob Crilly, Scott Olson (today--Getty), and Robert Klemko off the top of my head but there are a few more. That's over a few days.

What's going on here at the local Fox2 stream? It looks to me like they're gearing up for a press conference, but if it is, it could be hours away yet for all I know.

And there's probably more than a little bit that did their jobs and were left alone.

The guys at the Alex Jones and IAMB feeds are at the same place.

They had a news conference around 1am last night I think, and it looks like they're going to do it again.

You're right----IT'S A CONSTITUTIONAL AMERICAN ZONE. Where freedom of the press reigns, hence the ENTIRE reason why there's "credentialed press" and then just us people reporting what we see. When you are credentialed, you get the right (and have the responsibility) to obey the law but get full-access unless it's "classified". Tonight was not classified. Give it up.

I've not bashed anyone. We've asked questions - the same questions that many other citizens and journalists are asking. It's not bashing to ask question and expect civil rights to be upheld. LEOs don't get to act with immunity, they are held responsible for their actions/reactions just like citizens.

Um, exactly.
It's the the United States, where we are supposed to have civil rights.

Totally, I hear that, that's why I'm not fighting that tonight protesters went nuts and overboard. But the press is the.most.important.thing.we.have in our country, and its freedom is VERY important, so when I see people criticizing the press for staying on-scene or not "leaving" because LEO told them to, I get mad. Because LEO has NO RIGHT to tell credentialed reporters to stop covering their actions.

Edit: oh wait, I'm signals crossed again, sorry, yes, people were shot, Tim was rubber-bulleted. Your post just kind of blended the two, sorry
