Ferguson: behind police lines helmet-cam video of tactical team teargassing protesters


The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has published GoPro video footage by staff photographer David Carson "during his embed with the St. Louis County Police tactical team on Monday night." At about 2:45 in, police "come under fire and respond with tear gas."

It's really weird to see the term "embed," which we often use to describe reporters accompanying soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan war zones, being used in the context of local police action within the United States.
