2 Reporters Arrested At A Ferguson McDonald’s

FERGUSON, Mo. — Two reporters covering the shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer in a St. Louis suburb say they were arrested at a McDonald’s Wednesday evening in the commercial corridor where angry protests have occurred.

Wesley Lowery of The Washington Post and Ryan Reilly of The Huffington Post say they were working in the fast-food restaurant when SWAT officers came in to quickly clear the area. Both quickly tweeted about their arrests, detention and subsequent release without any charges.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson did not immediately return a cellphone message from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Earlier Wednesday, authorities urged people to confine their protests to daylight after three nights of tense confrontations, looting, tear gas and a second shooting nearby.

    Two liberal news agencies/propaganda sites for the left who experienced “supposedly” what?

    Well, Wesley… “supposedly” in “America, in 2014″ our PRESIDENT can lie to us… like it “didn’t even happen” – Kind of stinks to be you, huh?

    • Richard Hussong

      Well, that was certainly incoherent.

      • You_R_Responsible

        Try to remember Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS, NSA, and the VA scandal (which our President supposedly didn’t know about until he read it in the papers. Supposedly he/Obama did nothing wrong or at least that is what he wants us to believe… you know “like it didn’t happen”.

        So, I’m just wondering what these two liberal reports are not telling us… like were they asked to clear out and didn’t do it?

          So, you’re saying that because you suspect President Obama of lying about one or more of the affairs you mention, you suspect for some reason that the reporters are lying as well? I don’t see the connection.
