Islamic State Has More British Muslim Fighters Than Britain Does; U.S. Claims Only A ‘Handful’ Of Americans Have Joined

Documenting The Arrests Of Journalists In Ferguson

On Aug. 13, police in Ferguson, Missouri, assaulted and arrested two journalists for allegedly failing to exit a McDonald’s quickly enough while on a break from covering the protests. Since then, police actions against journalists in Ferguson have escalated in severity and frequency. Many have been tear gassed and shot with rubber bullets, and at least nine more have been arrested.

It should go without saying that these arrests are a gross violation of the reporters’ 1st Amendment rights, and attempts to prevent journalists from lawfully doing their job on the streets of Ferguson are downright illegal. Freedom of the Press Foundation documented each journalist arrest and is filing public records requests for the arrest records of the journalists who have been assaulted, detained and arrested in Ferguson. All requests are publicly available on MuckRock.
