Obama to Ferguson Cops: Stop Bullying, Arresting Reporters

President Obama criticized Thursday the arrests of two journalists by police in Ferguson, Mo., and called for an “open and transparent” investigation into last weekend’s shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by a white Ferguson police officer. “Here in the United States of America police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground," he said.
