In the video above, Al Jazeera America correspondent Ash-har Quraishi tells Brian Stelter about what happened when he and his crew were on the receiving end of tear gas and rubber bullets in Ferguson, Missouri. (Here is Stelter's CNN.com story about the incident.)
Quraishi said he feels the police action was intentional: "I do feel like we were targeted because after we retreated back, there was a crowd that did go towards our camera equipment and that was caught on camera. They hovered around our equipment. There were a number of people there - [but] no rubber bullets were fired at them and no canisters were fired at them, either."
He added, "Later on, the police that were involved in this basically said that they were helping us out by getting us out of there. You know, I find that a little bit insulting. It sounds like, you know, somebody sucker-punches you in a bar and then hands you a stick and kicks you out the door. That's not helping you."
