Lowry on Lessons From Ferguson: Don't Rob A Store And Assault a Police Officer


CHUCK TODD, MEET THE PRESS: You know, Rich, what's interesting when you look at whites, whites that live in urban communities believe that we still have a race problem in this country. Whites that live in more rural, basically whiter communities, they don't see the race issue. Do you think that's part of our divide? That maybe rural whites don't see this issue the way folks that live in urban America?

RICH LOWRY, NATIONAL REVIEW: Perhaps. But, you know, you look at Ferguson specifically, this is an area where the governmental structures haven't caught up to the demographic change over the last two decades or so. And that's something you take care of simply by organizing and voting. But what I really object to is you can discuss all these problems, but let's not pretend that this particular incident was something it wasn't.

If you look at the most credible evidence, the lessons are really basic. Don't rob a convenience store. Don't fight a policeman when he stops you and try to take his gun. And when he yells at you to stop with his gun drawn, just stop, and none of this would've happened.
