    Nope. Again, tell me how "shelled with this" makes sense. Why was the police officer demanding the light be turned off? Pointing a flood light in the dark at the police lines is saying "shoot here!". But the flood light itself also is a target for the shooters.

    "you will be shelled with us."

    Hmmmm... your google-fu is weak. Also here.

    The Washington Post later expanded on the incident:

    Officer appears to threaten cameraman covering chaos in Ferguson - The Washington Post



    They're proving everyone of their critics right. They are attacking the media, they do not want their oppression to be recorded. They do not want their aggression to be shown to the public later. This is the police state that people are so worried about.
    I posted this the night it happened and noted that the cop was way out of bounds. However, I also had the decency to note that a supervisor came right over and settled things down quite respectfully.

    What's happening in Ferguson is tense all around and there are stupid moves being made on both sides so trying to paint this as being one sided is simply one electrically dishonest.

    I am a conservative and I oppose militarized police. I'm also a rifle instructor and the first rule of safety is Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction . These guys are dangerous amateurs, and if someone pops one for threatening them with a loaded rifle I'd say they'd have it coming.

    ... you mean people taking these pictures?







    Think of that for a second, they're getting more access to terrorists and rebel fighters than they are to events happening at home and you're perfectly fine with that. Who is the true police state enabler?

    Yea, a captain did come over, take the information from the journalist, and give him a business card.

    Lack of charges doesn't mean they weren't doing anything, as should be evident by the lack of charges against Officer Wilson and the kid who was an accomplice to Brown's robbery.

    Where do you see anyone pointing a gun at anyone's head?
