Alderman Antonio French has been an amazing source of real-time updates on what is actually happening in Ferguson. His raw, in-the-moment pictures, vines and tweets are testimony to the abuse of angry residents at the hands of their own police department.

Now he has been arrested, silenced, and will be in jail for at least 24 hours.

This tweet from his wife gives a sense of the arrogance ablaze from these militant cops.

Who will yank these cops back from the precipice?
