LIAR OF THE WEEK: Ferguson and St. Louis Missouri Officials

liar-of-the-week-challenging-the-rhetoric-

Ferguson Officials earn the LIAR OF THE WEEK title for their omissions.

Audio recordings reported on by the Associated Press (AP) and published by the New York Times (NYT) and elsewhere, show local Ferguson officials sought and received Federal approval to close some 37-miles of air-space above Ferguson Missouri, in order to keep the media out for at least 12 days this past August. What we do not know is how frequently this same scenario has been acted out in Ferguson since or even at other scenes of public unrest. Will it again be enacted when the Darren Wilson verdict in the August 9 death of unarmed Missouri Teenager, Michael Brown Jr., comes out from the Grand Jury within the next week or so?
