    It is true. Everything that is recorded by Argus is archived on their web site. You can see it all there, including all the attempts by the police to provoke the citizens into rioting, so they can then tell lamestream media that they had no choice but to crack down hard on them. Click the link I provided, and be prepared to be shocked at the police behavior.

    None of this is really shocking, to me at least. I've seen police pull crap like this before.

    Have you seen the coverage of these night protests? There are media swarming everywhere, in and out through the protestors, getting in the face of officers as they try to take arrestees away . . . I value the freedom of the press, absolutely, but this type of aggressive media behavior in a tense situation is unwarranted and not at all what the freedom of the press is about.
    Police in Ferguson arrest and threaten more journalists - The Washington Post

    Overnight, several journalists reported being detained, threatened or otherwise prevented from covering the unfolding story. The arrest late Sunday night of three reporters — Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated, Chicago-based Financial Times reporter Neil Munshi and Rob Crilly, a foreign correspondent for the Telegraph (and no stranger to war zones) — reportedly came as the journalists attempted to gather more information while police faced off with protesters.
    All this comes after two reporters were arrested inside a McDonald’s last week during largely peaceful protests in Ferguson. One of those journalists, The Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery, recorded the exchange with police who said they were clearing the restaurant where Lowery and the Huffington Post’s Ryan Reilly were working.
    Ferguson Police Arrest Photographer, 90-Year-Old -- NYMag

    Around 6:30 p.m., those on the ground reported that Scott Olson, a Getty photographer who has been documenting the protests all week, was being arrested. The Telegraph's Rob Crilly said it appeared Olson was taken into custody "for not getting out the way fast enough when ordered." "He was literally just across the street from the media area," tweeted the Huffington Post's Ryan Reilly, one of the first two journalists arrested last week, adding, "Not a good sign for media access tonight."
    Reporters Arrested, Targeted Once More In Ferguson

    Ryan Devereaux, a reporter for the Intercept, was detained by police early on Tuesday morning. His editor, John Cook, wrote that police had initially given no information about Deveraux's status.
    They're turning Ferguson into a police state.

    So he was going to shoot the cameraman to protect him...that sounds about right.

    You should watch the video. Tell me whether the cop says "shelled with this" or "shelled with us".

    First off, the term "shelled with this" is a very odd statement to make. On the other hand "shelled with us" is an entirely appropriate thing to say as the police were under fire and the light was drawing attention.

    Tell me which one the officer actually said.

    "Shelled with us?" Oh, I know, maybe he said, "Held with Gus."
