Police in Ferguson, Missouri have once again clashed with reporters covering the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting. One cop, who was being filmed by local radio journalist Mustafa Hussein, threatened to shoot to Hussein if he didn’t stop.
The cop can be heard yelling “Get the fuck out of here! You get that light off or you’re getting shot with this!”

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was also threatened by an officer who said “Get back! Or next time you’re gonna be the one maced.”
Meanwhile, Jay Nixon — the governor of Missouri — has called in the National Guard. Just what Ferguson needs, more guns.
