The Press Club of Metropolitan St. Louis strongly condemns the manhandling and disrespect shown to our colleagues by authorities during the unfolding crisis in Ferguson, MO. We believe these actions should cease, and that those responsible for maintaining order in Ferguson establish and enforce rules to assure the safety of our journalistic colleagues. We further believe journalists should be able to freely cover these important events without undue restrictions.

This statement was unanimously approved by the Press Club Board of Directors at its meeting on Monday, August 18, 2014.
