A Conversation About Ferguson

Glenn Loury and John McWhorter ponder policing in the aftermath of Mike Brown's death and the failure to indict his killer.

Longtime readers will recall my esteem for the periodic conversations between by Glenn Loury of Brown University and John McWhorter of Columbia University. Their latest subject is policing in the wake of events and protests in Ferguson, Missouri. As usual, their civil exchange is characterized by a searching frankness that I find rare, whether I agree or disagree with a given argument or characterization.
