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.

Be sure to check out G-Unit and J. Cole's respective tracks dedicated to Michael Brown.
