Transcript for Ferguson Through a Camera Lens
Back now with the final note from Ferguson. A moment with Lawrence Bryant, he's a photographer for the St. Louis American. The major african-american newspaper here. And when this suburb transformed into a national flash point, Bryant was right there with his camera. I saw anger. I saw -- I saw pain. I saw hurt. I will never forget when the sniper locked eyes with me right after I took his picture. I saw the three girls running through the tear gas, coughing. Just everybody in pandemonium. I felt like I was almost in Beirut or Vietnam running through the streets, trying to get away from the police. I would never expect to see tear gas and military tactics going into the neighborhoods of Ferguson. We started taking pictures of S.W.A.T. Trucks. Then I saw a guy just pop out the top and throw a tear gas right at us. The police was already looking like they were ready for war. And, the crowd, the community, was not going to let them come in and push them around. I felt it was my obligation as a photographer to capture history. Powerful images. Now, we honor our fellow Americans who serve in sacrifice.ívzgí this week, the Pentagon released the name of one soldier killed in Afghanistan. That's all for us today. Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with us. Check out "World news" with David Muir tonight. So long from Ferguson, Missouri.
