    No fly zone in MO meant to keep press out of area

    acknowledged the purpose was to keep away news helicopters during violent street protests.

    How much smaller or non-existent would the protests been if there had been no wall of media cameras to act the fool in front of?

    Limiting the BS to the St. Louis County PD would be OK?

    The conversations contradict claims by the St. Louis County Police Department, which responded to demonstrations following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, that the restriction was solely for safety and had nothing to do with preventing media from witnessing the violence or the police response.

    It may be that lying to the FAA in this matter was a felony .. so no one will pony up to this one...wall of silence .. everyone is guilty then of at least conspiracy ...

    Really, I don't think that the presence of the news media had anything significant to do in this case.

    So Reverend Al Sharpton, Reverend Jesse Jackson and numerous others went there out of the kindness of their hearts? While I would agree the media didn't have much to do with the CASE, they had EVERYTHING to do with fanning and increasing the flames of unrest.

    Blaming the victims of the rights trampling instead of the aggressive, oppressive tyrants. Nice.

    Not the case, but the protests were fueled by the media coverage.

    Reports of shot fired at a cop chopper. If the cops wanted the "media" out of the area there were many media folks standing in close proximity to cops, yet they were not removed/excluded from the area. Non-issue.
