Cornel West among arrested protester in Ferguson

(Ignore the comments at the link: They're predictably full of stupid.)

From The St. Louis Post Dispatch:
After a long standoff in heavy rain, about 10 to 15 clergy members who had offered themselves for arrest were taken into custody about noon today at the city police station, protest organizers said. Among those arrested was Cornel West, a Baptist minister, activist and commentator who has been in St. Louis for the weekend of protests, they said. A police dispatcher said no supervisor was available immediately to confirm the arrests or charges.
On a related note, police have reverted back to some of the militaristic tactics they were condemned for during August's protests.
