BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): Yes, and virtually all of us have gotten a traffic ticket at some point. And you know what all of us don't do, run away from the police officers or fail to obey commands.
Not to quote early Chris Rock, but you should obey commands from the police, this is a good idea. This is – if you want to avoid a bad interaction with a cop, the best way to avoid bad interaction with a cop is not to, number one, commit a crime, and number two, not to disobey the police officer when he tells you what to do.
Now again, that does not excuse police brutality, it does not mean these officers shouldn’t go to jail, they violated the law. We talked about this yesterday. But if you want to actually reduce the number of interactions between one population group and the cops, one of the things you are going to need to do is reduce the crime rate among this population group so they don't have interactions with the cops.
This is not exactly rocket science. And yet, the solution, apparently, is that we stop the policing.
SHAPIRO: When you abolish the cops, crime goes up. This is true everywhere, it's been true for all of human history.
