Heather Mac Donald, the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute sits down with ChangeUp Media’s Ben Weingarten for Encounter Books to discuss her new book “The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe.” During the interview, Heather and Ben discuss a variety of topics including her debunking of the Obama administration and media narrative that the criminal justice system is racist, Mac Donald’s so-called “Ferguson Effect” thesis on the spike in violent crime in America, the sentiments of victims when it comes to police pulling back under political pressure, the truth about police shootings of blacks, mandatory minimums, what President Obama’s time as a community organizer in the South Side of Chicago has to do with Mac Donald’s overarching thesis, and much more.
