HBO's Last Week Tonight host John Oliver is known for his comedic and satirist commentary on global issues. But on Sunday's show, Oliver gave a critical review of the events and violence surrounding the death of 18-year-old Mike Brown, in Ferguson, MO.

In the 15-minute segment, Oliver comes down on local police forces across America stockpiling military weaponry, mine-resistant tanks, and riot gear. Questioning the need for militarized supplies in small towns. He even poked fun at Keene, New Hampshire police for ordering a BearCat armored tank to protect their annual pumpkin festival from terrorist attacks.

The seemingly ordinary commentary turned to a vitriolic analysis filled with both anger and a passion for change. He Condemned the racial inequality and profiling by the police force in Missouri suburb, as well as the unnecessary force used against citizens during protest. In closing, Oliver addressed police officers and officials in Ferguson and across the nation, "...If you are a cop in the United States, you should dress for the job you have, not the job you want."
