‘Keep it Moving’ Rule for Ferguson Protestors Heads to Court

CBS St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Critics call it the “five-second rule,” and today it goes before a federal judge.

Last month, law enforcers began telling Ferguson, Missouri, demonstrators that they had to keep moving if they wanted to protest the shooting death of Michael Brown, and that if they just stood in place they faced the possibility of arrest.

Civil rights activists say the rule is too arbitrary and restrictive to their freedom of expression.

The issue goes before a judge later this morning at the Eagleton Federal Courthouse in downtown St. Louis.
