    Why would CNN give this IDIOT one second of airtime? He was not a witness to the shooting, he is full of hate for the police and any authority. He adds No Value to this issue.

    “There were five or six residents who eye- witnessed the shooting of Michael Brown who we saw on the news. The public would like to know if they were called into the grand jury to testify”??

    “There were two white construction workers at the scene of the killing, were these two guys called to the grand jury”??

    “We would like to know if there are any pictures of Officer Darren Wilson’s alleged injuries”??

    “Has anyone seen the x-ray’s or doctors reports of Darren Wilson’s alleged injuries”??

    Nice job investigating this guy, he supports terrorism TooToo584 mentioned. Not hard to find his views online. And as always a weak interview Stelter. Masri claims to be non-violent, but I am confused as to yelling "shoot" and "I'm praying for your death" are non-violent. Why not ask him how that is non-violent? If that was a different situation and someone was yelling these things it would certainly not be labelled violent.

    CNN, do you know that Bassem Masri is the farthest thing from a "Reliable Source"? He is an extremist who supports Palestinan terrorists and hurls disgusting, vile insults at law enforcement officers who are simply trying to do their job. He has dozens of warrants out, he spits in the face of the law, so naturally, he loves chanting hateful words at them every day in Ferguson. He's an opportunist who is riding this protest "gig" as far as he possibly can ride it and you–CNN–are helping him so just that by giving him an exposure in the media. STOP IT CNN!

    This scum bag is not a journalist, he is not an activist, he is an opportunist, he is petty criminal who just happens to be able to avoid jail! STOP paying attention to him and he will find another place to go spreading his hate.

    If CNN and all of the cameras went home, the protestors would go home. This is a giant media event promoted through media coverage at the detriment of Ferguson. If I was the mayor, I would sue major media for damages brought about as a result of their coverage.
