Ferguson Update: Tuesday, Aug. 19

Police LightsWASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration has extended a ban on flights operating below 3,000 feet over Ferguson, Missouri, for a week “to provide a safe environment for law enforcement activities.” The notice, now effective through Aug. 25, was issued at the direction of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon. Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis, has faced growing racial unrest since an unarmed 18-year-old black man was shot by a white police officer on Aug. 9.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The St. Louis County Chapter of the NAACP says it supports Nixon’s decision to call in the National Guard in Ferguson, Missouri, where tensions remain high more than a week after a police officer killed 18-year-old Michael Brown. Following another round of rioting in Ferguson Sunday night, Gov. Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to the St. Louis suburb. NAACP chapter president Esther Haywood says a small group of people seeking to cause chaos are creating the problems, not peaceful protesters.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — A Getty Images journalist has been arrested and released in Ferguson as protests over the police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown persisted in the St. Louis suburb. Photographer Scott Olson said he was “arrested for just doing my job.” As with previous arrests of journalists over the past week, no charges were filed against Olson, who by Monday night was back shooting photos.
