During a live broadcast tonight, MSNBC's Chris Hayes had rocks thrown at him and was jeered by the crowd while reporting on the protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

"They're chucking rocks at us," says Hayes. "People are angry. They're really angry." The protesters throwing the rocks yelled at Hayes to "tell the real story" and told him that it's a civil rights movement and not just about Michael Brown. Fellow MSNBC host Craig Melvin notes the folks yelling at Hayes were wearing masks.

One "protester" took it even further, stating "they mad cause they know who the real Jews are, baby!" Hayes simply replies, "Well, you heard that."

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes dodged a few rocks thrown towards him and a colleague while reporting live from the scene in Ferguson, Mo., on Monday night. The incident took place as demonstrators appeared to move back in the face of a strong police presence.

“People are angry, man — they’re really angry,” Hayes said, assuring viewers that he and host Craig Melvin were fine. Protesters yelled at Hayes and Melvin to “tell the true story.”

At around 11 p.m., the situation in the Missouri city shifted from a more peaceful one to tense in a matter of minutes.
