Heather Mac Donald: Can We Restore Law and Order in Our Cities?
On this week’s episode of She Thinks, we consider crime rates across the country and ask the important question: “can law and order be restored in our cities?” Heather Mac Donald joins us to break down the data, explain why violent criminals are released back onto the street so quickly, and what, if any, are the solutions to combat the unsafe conditions many people are living in. We also discuss her recent book that looks at the importance of evaluating people on merit instead of race. Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a contributing editor at City Journal, and the 2005 recipient of the Bradley Prize. Her work has covered a range of topics, from higher education and immigration to policing and race relations. She is the author of several critically acclaimed books, including her most recent, When Race Trumps Merit: How the Pursuit of Equity Sacrifices Excellence, Destroys Beauty, and Threatens Lives. -- She Thinks is a podcast for women (and men) who are sick of the spin in today’s news cycle and are seeking the truth.
