Ben Brunson is an economist, author and thinker on things political and military. Besides the actual facts of the incident that took place in Ferguson, Mo., the police reaction seemed off balance and not well thought out. Coming out in military uniforms with armored transports and weaponry was pouring gasoline on the fire. Rather than putting out the disturbance, it caused it to continue for two weeks.

Ben gives us a closer look and helps you understand what’s next.
