wonkytown_1024Reihan and Patrick look at questions surrounding the riots in Baltimore this week: Just how ridiculous was the president’s suggestion that Republicans in Congress are blocking policies that could help the situation? What can conservatives bring to the discussion about inner cities, criminal justice, and policing? It turns out there may not be as much of a bipartisan consensus about some criminal-justice reforms as you might have heard—the Left and the Right have different ideas for solving different sorts of problems in a place like Baltimore.

    I almost didn’t listen to this episode, as I anticipated a tediously boring and un-useful discussion on which I’ve already heard too much (the riots). My anticipation was wrong. The education I received, with very interesting descriptions of how different people look at the issues, genuinely challenged, in a rational way, the assumptions I have been making.
