"When you see the kind of force that's been used in Ferguson, it really does make it appear that the police department there is an occupying army in a hostile territory and that is absolutely not what we want to see in the United States," Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Monday. "We've got to rethink a lot of this heavy equipment that police departments around the country are utilizing." The senator was interviewed on MSNBC about the police response to protests in the St. Louis suburb since Aug. 9, when an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, was shot to death by a white police officer.
