UPDATE: Video of Wesley Lowery from the Washington Post inside McDonald's right before he was arrested


The executive editor of the Washington Post said 'there was absolutely no justification for his arrest' and that he was 'appalled' by the conduct of the officers. He went on to say 'that behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news' and the 'physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous'.

The situation in Ferguson, MO keeps growing by the day with the protesting and unrest after police shot and killed an unarmed 18 year old named Mike Brown and left him dead in the street for hours.

On Wednesday night, two reporters were detained, maybe arrested and allegedly assaulted at a McDonalds

The two reporters are Wesley Lowery from the Washington Post and Ryan Reilly from the Huffington Post. Their timelines of the night are pretty unbelievable.
