POLICE: MAN SHOT AFTER OPENING FIRE ON OFFICERS IN FERGUSON “On the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death, police in Ferguson, Missouri, shot a man they say opened fire on them.” St. Louis Police Chief Jon Belmar said of the men allegedly exchanging fire with police, “They were criminals; they weren’t protesters. … Protesters are the people out there talking about a way to effect change. We can’t afford to have this kind of violence, not only on a night like this but any point in time if we’re going to move forward in the right direction.” [Ryan Reilly, HuffPost]
