President Obama recently said he was “so proud” of the Black Lives Matter movement–but in fact he fails to understand the worst problems of criminal justice, says Heather Mac Donald, author of The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Mac Donald describes what’s wrong with the claims of Black Lives Matter activists, defines the “Ferguson Effect” (a term she coined), and discusses the merits of proposals to put body cameras on police officers.
