President Obama is ordering a review of federal programs that allow local law enforcement agencies to buy military equipment. The review comes on the heels of criticism about the heavy, military-style equipment that was brought out in Ferguson. Missouri, in response to, at times, violent protests.

They will look at whether such programs are appropriate and whether local agencies have the necessary training, among other things.
