Ferguson Police and CNN

Best public relations move by the Ferguson Police Department ever. Trying to corral and possibly arrest Don Lemon of CNN during a live broadcast.

There is a bonus in this article, they also cover the arrest of a 90 year old holocaust survivor who was protesting as well in St. Louise. I can only imagine what is going through that woman's mind in the picture where she's getting carted off by the two officers.

HABERSHAM COUNTY, Ga. - Ooops!

Apparently a SWAT raid went bad when they threw a flash bang grenade in to a toddlers crib. The Habersham County, GA is apparently refusing to pay for the medical bills of the toddler their SWAT team goofed up on.

Talk about ducking out of responsibilities, stay classy Habersham.

It's gotten so bad out there that the police even tear gassed a State Senator.

Looks to me neither side is going to win this one and a lot of people are going to suffer. Especially when you have police snipers leveling their weapons on crowds with children in them.

This whole thing brings up an interesting discussion about the continued militarization of America's police forces. Especially when you have arguments for and against it that are valid.
