Missouri State Senator: Ferguson Has 'PTSD' from Michael Brown Shooting

Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead With Jake Tapper,” Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said the entire town of Ferguson needs psychological counseling for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

After the leaking of details of the official autopsy of Michael Brown caused unrest last night the state senator said, “What should have happened since day one is we should have had counselors out in the streets and psychologists because this community is experiencing PTSD right now and frankly, I think some officers are, too. so instead of inciting this community, this community needs to have supports in place so they can deal with the announcement that happens later on in the coming weeks.”
