McCaskill: Police Should "De-Militarize" Situation in Ferguson



Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill is laying some of the blame on the unrest in Ferguson on the police. McCaskill released a statement while visiting Ferguson today, saying police need to "de-militarize" the situation, adding that "this kind of response by the police has become the problem instead of the solution." There have been demonstrations, riots, and looting since the fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by a Ferguson police officer earlier this week.
