Ferguson: live video streams of SWAT team assault on protesters

Live web video streams of the show of force by heavily militarized police against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, where an unarmed young black man was shot dead by police. The police have been firing rubber bullets, tear gas, and using a sonic weapon and stun guns on the crowd.

Note: Caveat viewer. Sometimes, livestreams aren't actually live. Sometimes, what you see isn't accurate, or in context. And you may click to view but see footage that was streamed previously.

This Reddit feed is a good reference tonight, also.

  1. F**king hell, America. This is why you need to get peace in Gaza and in Iraq and Afghanistan. You're training your military police on non-citizens, and then you're bringing your military police back home, where they shoot up anyone in sight.

  2. The cops have been doing this to Black people for centuries in America. They may have fancy new gear because of the wars and militarization, but that's not why this is happening.

  3. In the one video the local residents are complaining about how the cops were using mace, dogs, and rubber bullets in the residential streets which look like nice middle class homes. And they said the cops started doing this before the looting, like they wanted to provoke something, then they pulled back so the store could burn.

  4. The Ferguson PD is nothing but a criminal mob.
