Watch Don Lemon Get Roughed Up by Ferguson Police

CNN anchor Don Lemon has drawn a good deal of criticism for calling on young black men to Don Lemon Fergusonpull up their pants, but while reporting in Ferguson, Lemon quickly learned that you can be a well dressed CNN anchor and still be mistreated by the police.

While Lemon was reporting for CNN, he shouted “I think we’re about to be arrested.”

Although Lemon was not arrested, he was physically shoved by police who yelled, “Move out of the way, sir. Move!”

“We’ve been standing here all day,” Lemon tried to explain as the officer pushed him back.

“I’m not going to resist a police officer,” Lemon added. “Now you see why people are so upset here, because we have been here all day…We’re on national television. So imagine what they are doing to people when you don’t see on national television, the people who don’t have a voice like we do.”

Lemon attempted to get an answer on why they were being moved but was only told that there were “traffic concerns.”

“I think from my perspective here, the police actually created the traffic situation and the situation that’s going on, the chaos here, rather than the people who are just standing here,” Lemon explained.

The situation didn’t get any better overnight either, since Captain Ron Johnson says a small group of law breakers caused trouble during protests.

“Our officers came under heavy gunfire” said Johnson. “This was not an act of protesters. This was an act of viοlent criminals.”

Johnson says the problems last night stemmed from a loud and angry group of protesters who faced off with police.

“Police did not react,” Johnson said. “That’s when bottles were thrown from the middle and the edge” of the group.

In all, 31 people were arrested overnight.

  1. The only thing those so called cops are doing is showing their true barbarous ways!! No matter how they try to disguise it, it's being shown for the world to see!! :*

  2. This same video is going around saying that this is a fake news story. At no point in the video is the camera person asked to stop filming….only Don is asked to move off the sidewalk and he asked the "cop" about that…there are no badges on any of these so called policeman, no real passion coming from the crowd…just Don Lemon being asked to move back and then allowed to keep going……something is indeed off about this video….and in the wake of other "staged" events such has the Boston marathon bombing and the Newtown Ct shootings….I am picking my battles….I know this country will pull a false flag in a heartbeat….get you all caught up in what is happening in one area while they are doing the real damage in another….I no longer trust anything about what is going on….

  3. Don Lemon is only attempting to demonstrate that he too is Black to a point.

  4. I realize that I am not being the LEAST bit charitable, but I wish they would have CLUBBED him a "little", so he would REALLY understand. I don't like that POS.

  5. Where is the ruffing up of Don? Move on, nothing to see here!!!! SMH. . . .
