Police reaction in Ferguson doesn't make any sense

(CNN) – As tension grows in Ferguson, CNN's Jake Tapper walks between protesters and heavily armed police equipped with semi-automatic rifles, batons, and shields. Many of the police officers were dressed for combat.

There was nothing happening on the streets of Ferguson that merited a scene more fitting for Bagram Air Base.

If people wonder why the people of Ferguson, Missouri, are so upset, this is part of the reason.
