FERGUSON, Mo. -- A federal judge says law enforcement has to stop telling protesters that they can’t stand still on the streets.

U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry says that's unconstitutional.

The must-keep-moving policy was adopted back in August, in the early days after Michael Brown's death, and it was apparently still in full-swing late September. In some cases, officers reportedly told folks they couldn't stand in one place for more than five seconds.
