John Oliver Discusses Ferguson, MO and Police Militarization On "Last Week Tonight"
John Oliver has some things he'd like to say about the current situation in Ferguson, Missouri.
This past week has seen some of the largest-scale American protests of the last decade in the wake of Michael Brown being shot to death by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. People in cities across the country have joined in retaliatory protests against police violence, looking to send a message to the government.
Now John Oliver, formerly of "The Daily Show" and currently of "Last Week Tonight," has a very interesting (and oddly enough, hilarious) take on the news story, which you can watch above.
