Earlier today St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar spoke with News2Share’s Trey Yingst. As officers passed out water bottles to protesters, Belmar discussed a change in police tactics during gatherings in Ferguson. In addition, Belmar pointed out that he is seeing a difference in the way law enforcement is interacting with the media.

“Shame on us if we haven’t learned from the things that have happened in the past,” Belmar said.
