The Massachusetts senator addressed the surreal condition of the St. Louis suburb, which has seen a week filled with tear gas and rubber bullets following the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Police in Ferguson have come under heavy criticism this week for what has been seen as an overzealous response to the protests over Brown's death.

On Wednesday night, two reporters — the Washington Post's Wesley Lowery and the Huffington Post's Ryan Reilly — were arrested inside a Ferguson McDonald's.

The two journalists were subsequently released.
