More from Ferguson

Keeping with what I did last night in the embedded post, I'm linking to a late story from each of the three St. Louis television stations. Linked from them, possibly in a sidebar or a "popular stories" box are more from each of the outlets and that's where you'll find updates about the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Unfortunately, the looting and civil unrest is overshadowing the sad story, though the Brown family is asking for calm. Also in some kind of old-meets-new kind of thing, Al Sharpton has said that he'll be coming to town and Anonymous have announced a "Hacktivist" campaign. The family have also retained Benjamin Crump, the attorney who represented Trayvon Martin's family's interests during their ordeal.

KMOV (As was the case with the first night, this station has a different report in this spot)


(I don't know why the little previews aren't showing, they are in the compose window, but all of them are about the evening's chaos because that was still happening at 10pm and some could still be happening now. There are other stories though, accessible from or under the links.)

News Videos from Ferguson, MO

As most people have undoubtedly heard, Ferguson, part of the St. Louis metropolitan area was the scene of a police shooting Saturday afternoon, when 18 year-old Michael Brown was shot multiple times by a police officer, even when laying on the ground according to witnesses, apparently for walking in the street.

I've surveyed the local stations websites and would like to embed all three of their news reports from last night, but Kinja is giving me the same issue with Chrome that I've had for the past few days and another of the videos autoplay, so I'm just going to post the links.

As you might expect, some of the stations have multiple reports and of course there will be updates, but as they say, "if you're just tuning-in" this is what occurred: an unarmed African-American teen looking forward to starting college next week was shot multiple times by a cop. The local chapter of the NAACP have said that they'll be launching their own investigation and they have asked the FBI to become involved with the case.




KMOV (for some reason this video has changed to a more recent report)

The Ferguson Police have scheduled a press conference 10 AM (Central) today (Sunday). I expect it will be webcast by these stations, along with several national outlets.
