War on Cops: The speech

More than 100 police officers from across Minnesota joined 150 others to hear author Heather Mac Donald explain how Black Lives Matters protests have affected police protection in the neighborhoods that need it most. Mac Donald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, wrote the highly acclaimed book, The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe. The speech was part of a yearlong series entitled How Liberal Policies Hurt the Middle Class, the Poor and Minorities.
