The seemingly unwarranted police crackdown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri after police shot and killed an apparently unarmed man last weekend hit new heights of unnecessary force last night as reporters were arrested for not turning off recording devices (recording police, so long as you aren't obstructing their work, is 100% legal) and this photo with police in full riot gear with loaded weapons pointed at a lone unarmed man depicts the unexplained police state that has taken hold in middle America.
