Rachel Maddow on Ferguson: ‘It Doesn’t Make Sense’

Like her MSNBC colleagues, Rachel Maddow has covered the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent protests in Ferguson extensively. Earlier this week, she told David Letterman her thoughts on the story.

“It doesn’t make any sense,” Maddow said regarding the militarization of the police force many have cited when talking about Ferguson. “Even small town police departments have mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicles that were developed for use in Kandahar.”
