Ferguson no-fly zone was reportedly aimed at media 2 Nov 2014 Police in Ferguson, Missouri requested the federal government institute a no-fly zone in more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding the city in an effort to keep news helicopters away during violent protests, the Associated Press reported Sunday. The Federal Aviation Administration in August agreed to the police request to restrict the airspace surrounding Ferguson for 12 days, saying it was for safety due to the demonstrations following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. However, officials reportedly acknowledged in taped telephone conversations that the real reason for the no-fly zone was to keep media helicopters away.
