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.

FBI Director James Comey told reporters that “viral video effect” (which is his latest term for what used to be called the “Ferguson effect”) is responsible for increased violent crime in some US cities, in that police are scared to do their jobs because they might end up on Youtube in an unflattering video.
Ferguson’s cops aren’t just notorious for being an invading domestic military force: long before that, they were notorious for “failure to comply” arrests, where (mostly brown) people who were minding their own businesses were arrested for refusing to show ID, move along, or following other orders from uniformed officers.
St. Louis Fire Department captain Garon Mosby calls the fires “arson,” but despite the shocking string of racist attacks, major media have hardly breathed a word about the fires.
