National Review’s Rich Lowry offered sage advice to today’s youth on how not to end up dead on the street like robber Michael Brown.
Via Meet the Press:
LOWRY: You look at Ferguson specifically, this is an area where the governmental structures haven’t caught up to the demographic change over the last two decades or so and that’s something you take care of simply by organizing and voting.

But what I really object to is you can discuss all of these problems, but let’s not pretend that this particular incident was something it wasn’t. It you look at the most credible evidence, the lessons are really basic. Don’t rob a convenience store. Don’t fight a policeman when he’s stopped you and try to take his gun and when he yells at you to stop with is gun drawn, just stop and none of this would have happened.

Of course, Crooks and Liars was very upset with Lowry for his clarity on the issue. They insist on pushing the folklore that Michael Brown’s shooting was all about race and racism.
