August 18, 2014 – Andrea Mitchell interviews Congressman Ron Paul on the continuing situation in Ferguson, “mission creep” in Iraq and his thoughts on Gov. Rick Perry’s indictment.

From the interview:

“To militarize [local law enforcement], to provide them military weapons, creates a culture. Guns and tanks and gasses that are illegal in wartime are being used. It is an atmosphere that encourages police to overreact.”
