Once again an extremely militarized police force is facing down peaceful protesters in Ferguson and trying to get them to disperse. There are dozens of officers, some counting more than 70 and reports that there are snipers with weapons pointed at the crowd.

Reddit has a live stream gathering all the information coming out as it happens here. For those willing to endure the occasional conspiracy theory, Infowars has a live USStream right there at the front where it's all going down. Here's a stream from the local Fox affiliate as well.

Update: Ryan J. Reilly, the journalist who took the photo on the right there, and Washington Post journalist Wesley Lowery were briefly arrested and then released while at a nearby McDonald's. Lowery tweeted, "Officers slammed me into a fountain soda machine because I was confused about which door they were asking me to walk out of."

Update: Police have begun advancing on the protestors, shooting tear gas and rubber bullets to try to force them to disperse. Here is another stream. I think the streamer was hit by a rubber bullet while I was watching.
