Greg Dworkin's back, but it's all about Ferguson, police militarization and political theory today. Reporters are getting arrested. Once (presumably, generously) cautious libertarians are finally beginning to issue statements. And we awaited the same from MO's governor. Meanwhile, should we expect a bolder Ferguson response during the "libertarian moment"? Or is that not a real thing? But the bulk of the show is given over to a discussion of the political dynamics of police militarization, how it happens, and why. I think we hit some points that aren't getting serious discussion elsewhere, if I do say so myself. And I just did.
