If you’re looking for a step-by-step guide on how not to handle a community’s outrage at a wrongful death, you need look no further than the local police force of Ferguson, Missouri and the state’s governor.  Their botched mishandling of the protests in the wake of the police shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown is about as revolting as it gets.  Nowhere has this been explained more brilliantly than last night’s episode of HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.  Watch above as John builds a crystal clear explanation of how local officials made everything so much worse, and why the militarization of America’s police forces is unconscionable.
