Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted out her displeasure at what's been happening in St. Louis and joined the chorus of outrage over the actions that are taking place in Ferguson, Mo.
This is America, not a war zone. The people of #Ferguson just want answers. We all want answers.

Isn't it interesting that when Democratic politicians were threatened and spit on during the tea party's summer of hate, the police sat back and did nothing.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) weighed in Thursday on the growing chaos in Ferguson, Mo., where violence has erupted after an unarmed black teenager was fatally shot by a police officer last weekend.
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.
Even wingnut Rep. Amash wasn't thrilled with what he sees:
Images & reports out of #Ferguson are frightening. Is this a war zone or a US city? Gov't escalates tensions w/military equipment & tactics.
