Heather MacDonald: There Are Many Law-Abiding Citizens in Minority Areas

By    |   Friday, 17 Oct 2014 04:29 PM

Law-abiding citizens in low-income neighborhoods are often drowned out by rabble-rousers who slam police work as racial profiling, says Heather MacDonald, a Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal.

"You go to a community meeting in minority areas and the first thing you hear is, 'we want more cops, we want the drug dealers off the streets,'" MacDonald said Friday on the "Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"There are law-abiding people in minority communities who understands the vitality of public order and who support the cops, but they're never heard."

"Society needs cops to protect us, to maintain public order, and if they are now viewed as engaged in racially biased profiling when they are simply going after legitimate criminal action, it's all over."

She added that protesters who show up to a rally against the police are well-funded.

"Protest is an industry now. You have all the union people, it's a lifestyle and people that have the time to do this," she said.

"I don't know where they get the funding for it, but it's obviously very well-funded."
