Watch: Condescending Fox Reporter Cursed Out by Ferguson Protestor

Reporting from Ferguson Monday night, Fox correspondent Steve Harrigan dismissively referred to the late night protests as child's play. 


"This is right now a media event, pure and simple. This is people running towards tear gas, running away from it. The dignified protestors went home at dusk. This is just child’s play right now," he told Shepard Smith back at the studio. 

Harrigan's patronizing take on the demonstrations did not sit well with a nearby protestor, who failed to see the elements of "childs play" in his community's resistance to  police brutality.
