I interviewed the key witness to the Michael Brown shooting last night.
The police haven't.

Riot cop to me just a few minutes ago: "Get back! Or next time you're gonna be the one maced."
The biggest takeaway from Ferguson: millions and millions of Americans live their lives under conditions that feel like occupation.
If you walk about 100 feet from OK'ed press area you find yourself lit up by a spotlight and a squad of police on hair trigger.
Solution I'm considering is to just go there tomorrow and do the show live from the site of the protests.

To the cops in Ferguson, MO: we're all watching right now. We see you.

I understand people have different views of situation in MO, but what kind of person is spending their time calling a dead 18yo a "thug"?
I have a pit in my stomach over where this is headed if something doesn't change.
3 people saw what happened to Michael Brown.

There is just a terrible dynamic that exists right now btwn protesters and police and I don't know what solves it, but can't go on like this
