Video Of Ferguson Police Gassing News Crew And Dismantling Their Equipment

Rob Beschizza



A news crew, clearly no threat or impediment to the cops, films from a verge in Ferguson, Missouri. A pop and a cloud of white smoke marks the arrival of a tear gas canister at their feet, and the newscrew is forced to flee. Moments later, police pull up in an armored van and hurriedly try to break down the film equipment--until they notice that another crew is still filming them from across the street.

Update: Kate O'Brian, president of Al Jazeera America, released a statement condemning the police.
Last night at 9:30 CDT in Ferguson, Missouri, an Al Jazeera America news crew was reporting behind police barricades. They were easily identifiable as a working television crew. As they were setting up their camera for a live report, tear gas canisters landed in their proximity and police fired rubber bullets in their direction. Police continued to shoot after crew members clearly and repeatedly shouted 'Press'. Al Jazeera America is stunned by this egregious assault on freedom of the press that was clearly intended to have a chilling effect on our ability to cover this important story. Thankfully all three crew members are physically fine. We believe that this situation must be investigated along with those involving our colleagues at other media outlets.
Ferguson police deny the targeting was intentional.

68168 the lights/equipment was endangering them... if a mob wanted me shot for an event that i didn't commit (and is still under investigation) i'm pretty sure i'd tell the individual(s) that were illuminating me in the night to leave. they're effectively saying, "here they are, fire away" . and if they wouldn't leave, i'd make them.
