John Oliver Nails It On Ferguson, Attacks The 'Tone-Deafness' And Militarisation Of The Police

Posted: Updated:

In which 'Last Week Tonight With John Oliver' covers the recent terrible events in Ferguson, Missouri - and uncovers a story which is, as the host says, "depressingly familiar".

Watch Oliver's brilliant, biting take on the issues of police racism and militarisation above. As he puts it: "If you're white in Ferguson, you would need to be snorting cocaine directly off your dashboard to get stopped by the police" - and if the police want to blend in with their surroundings "they should be dressed as a dollar store".
