While CNN anchor Don Lemon (pictured above, in white) was reporting from the tense streets of Ferguson, Miss., early Monday morning as protestors stood in solidarity against the brutal killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown, he was pushed back aggressively several times by a police officer who clearly did not care he was being filmed by CNN cameras.

As CNN cameras rolled, Lemon held a microphone as an officer is gruffly ordered, “Move out of the way, sir. Move!” To which Lemon reponded,“We’ve been standing here all day.” Still, the officer outstretched his arms to push the reporter and the crowd back.

“We’ve got rights!” a woman behind Lemon screamed.

Lemon continued his report despite the officer’s aggressiveness toward him and the crowd. “I’m not going to resist a police officer,” Lemon stated as he was pushed backward. “Now you see why people are so upset here, because we have been here all day,” he added. “We’re on national television. So imagine what they are doing to people when you don’t see on national television, the people who don’t have a voice like we do.”

At one point, the 48-year-old Emmy Award-winning reporter, who has received criticism from the Black community for his controversial generalizations about Blacks, asked an officer, why he was trying to move people out of the area. After listening to the officer’s response, Lemon concluded, “I think from my perspective here, the police actually created the traffic situation and the situation that’s going on, the chaos here, rather than the people who are just standing here.”
