    To me that sounds like people who wanted to protest relatively peacefully turned him in, but I might be wrong.

    "A 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting outside the headquarters of the Ferguson police department that injured two officers, St. Louis County police and prosecutors said today.

    Jeffery Williams was arrested Saturday night and charged with two counts of first-degree assault, one count of firing a weapon from a vehicle and three counts of armed criminal action, said St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch. Williams was being held on $300,000 cash bond."

    - While the investigation is still on going, Williams has not had his day in court, his guilt to charges have yet to be determined, imo they probable got the right person.

    - My comment here is probably more appropriate in the bias in media section, I find it interesting Williams race is not mentioned, yet they seem to have no problems stating the race of "white" LEO's when they shoot a minority person. IMO, leaving race out is appropriate, but should be done for all parties involved. Photos are all that is required. The reader can draw their own conclusion.

    Did they need to mention it when his picture is right there for all to see?

    While you point out his guilt has yet to be determined, he admitted to his involvement. So that is pretty much an irrelevant distinction.

    It could be because they knew he wasn't aiming at the Officers.

    True , Williams admitted being the shooter. His reasons is to be determined. A news source states Williams was not targeting the LEO's. It will be interesting to see what comes out of the investigation. I am leaning towards his excuse is not going to hold up.

    As far as the race. Some articles have photos. Some do not. The incident that started this whole mess in Ferguson the news had no problems with photos and narrative to bring out the race of the LEO and the person shot. Seems they are downplaying the "race" card. I actually think that is a good idea.

    Re: 2 Officers Are Shot Outside Ferguson Police Station

    The stuff is coming in on this Williams character who has admitted to shooting the two police officers. He is from St. Louis and was known as a "regular" protestor in Ferguson. He is also on probation for other criminal activity and during his probation was caught with stolen property. He failed to appear on his court date and evidently has missed the several months of reporting in with his probation officer. He is on social media posting the typical selfies with comments. I'm waiting to hear from Al Sharpton that the guy was struggling to turn his life around.

    There seems to be some question about whether he was actually trying to shoot the police officers, or if they were just in the line of fire.

    Doesn't matter. Every friggin charge against him carries a life sentence. He can claim anything he wants, but two officers were struck. One still has the bullet logged next to his ear and sounds like he has lost an eye and maybe the hearing out of the ear. You can believe whatever you wish. I find it rather unbelievable that he wasn't directing those shots directly at police.

    Shouldn't that read; Carries the possibility of a life sentence?
