Curfew rules make journalism illegal

Scott Olson

The curfew rules put in place in Ferguson tonight make it impossible for journalists in town to legally report on whatever happens after midnight in confrontations between police and people who refuse to obey protest rules.

You can see how this comes about, logistically, but it means that if things go badly tonight the public could end up in the dark about what went down.
