Michael Brown fatally shot in Ferguson, Mo.

Washington Post releases statement after arrest of reporter in Ferguson, Mo.: 'He was illegally instructed to stop taking video of officers. Then he followed officers' instructions to leave a McDonald's - and after contradictory instructions on how to exit, he was slammed against a soda machine and then handcuffed. That behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news. The physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous'
