John Oliver Covers Ferguson with a Skillful Blend of Humor and Outrage
The events in Ferguson, Missouri are moving so fast that I wasn’t sure how John Oliver would be able to cover it last night without having everything he said become completely irrelevant within a day or two. But leave it John Oliver to step back and view it all with a broader perspective endemic racism within the police force in Ferguson and the problems with the militarization of cops across the nation.
Basically, Oliver argues, part of the problem is that we’re turning cops into soldiers, when that is not the job of a police officer.
p.s. To the bigoted dipsh*t who we blocked last week, but who simply wouldn’t give it up, pay special attention to the 1:15 mark, f*ck-O.
