Anonymous Releases St. Louis Police Dispatch Audio of Michael Brown Shooting

UPDATE: The @AnonMessage profile has been suspended by Twitter. Other outlets have also reported the dispatch recording. More details here as well.

This afternoon @TheAnonMessage tweeted out the following:

According to the YouTube description, “These files compiled in this video contains audio of St. Louis police dispatch from the date of August 9th 2014, the day Mike Brown was murdered by a Ferguson PD officer. We have released these tapes to the public so as they are able to get a sense of the atmosphere the moments before and the hours after Mike Brown was shot.”

The key to the tapes is around 10:12 when a “crowd control” call is made.
