Update, 4:30 p.m.: The ACLU, responding to BuzzFeed's Chris Geidner on Twitter, says that the officer involved in the incident described above has been removed from duty following a public ACLU complaint.
this is great and all but lets observe the fact that the moment a WHITE journalist is threatened, action is taken…while Michael Brown’s murderer still walks freely and the police officers threatening the lives of black people/hitting them with tear gas and rubber bullets are still on the clock
"The St. Louis County spokesperson called the entire incident "inappropriate" and said it was "not indicative of the officers who have worked daily to keep the peace" in Ferguson."
They are so full of shit. There are multiple reports of officers pointing guns at protesters that posed no threat as a form of intimidation, of threatening to shoot them. But you know, if only we just respected the police amirite?
