Who are the Oath Keepers?


One year after Michael Brown was fatally shot by an officer in Ferguson, Missouri, both peaceful and unrest unfolded. In the tension a group of heavily armed white civilians emerged triggering confusion and fear in the city. This group was called the Oath Keepers. One of the Oath Keepers, Sam Andrews, joins Melissa Harris-Perry to explain why he organized this group. A panel consisting of Paul Berry, the Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery, and the Research Director at the Safe Tennessee Project, Dr. Jonathan Metzel discuss the issue.
