Reporters Arrested In Ferguson, Missouri

(Ferguson, MO) -- The "Washington Post's" executive editor says he's appalled by what he described as the illegal arrest of one of the paper's reporters in Ferguson, Missouri. "Washington Post" reporter Wesley Lowery and Ryan Reilly of "The Huffington Post" were working inside a Ferguson McDonald's when SWAT officers came in demanding everyone exit the restaurant. Both say they were taken in custody only to be released shortly thereafter without any charges. The reporters also say the officers refused to identify themselves by name and demanded they stop videotaping the confrontation.
The "Post" calls the treatment of Lowery and Reilly, quote, "wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news." Law enforcement officials in St. Louis County have yet to respond to requests for comment on the incident.
