Senator Claire McCaskill calls for fresh start to protest response

Ferguson, MO (KTRS) – Senator Claire McCaskill is in Ferguson and she says the police response to protesters needs to change.

In a statement, McCaskill called on leaders to de-militarize the situation, as the response from police has “become the problem instead of the solution”.

The Senator is scheduled to speak with Attorney General Eric Holder, even though the Justice Department has not authority over local police actions. McCaskill says the situation is “totally unacceptable” but today can be the chance for a new start to do better.
