“If even the Governor can’t distinguish between the good and the bad elements of the community and has decided to punish everyone equally then that should go both ways. I know the police love their ridiculous, unnecessary military equipment, so here’s another patronizing test; let’s take it all away from them and if they could make it through a whole month without killing a single unarmed black man, then, and only then can they get their fucking toys back.”

—John Oliver during his Last Week Tonight segment on Ferguson, in reference to a police officer’s unacceptable statement. (via thehpalliance)
