St. Louis Station Apologizes for Showing Home of Ferguson Police Officer

ksdkSt. Louis NBC affiliate KSDK has apologized after showing the home of the Ferguson police officer accused of shooting and killing Mike Brown.

Yesterday KSDK showed the video of the Ferguson Police Officer’s home in our 5 p.m. news but did not mention the address of the home. KSDK immediately felt using that video was a mistake and pulled the video of the home from future newscasts and from our web site. We have not used the video since then and do not intend to do so. We apologize to our audience, to the surrounding neighborhoods, to the greater St.Louis community and to the officer for our mistake.

Viewers have complained about it on facebook, questioning the station’s judgement, with some vowing to never watch the station again.
