MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Thinks The Police Should Be Disarmed In Ferguson
On his Wednesday show, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz wondered whether “disarming the police” is an actual possibility in Ferguson amid probable changes to the police department after a report showing instances of racism.
“I’ll give you this one: What about disarming the police?” Schultz said stunningly. “What about just having them carry nightsticks and the authority to arrest?”
“I mean, it would take a brave person to do something like that, but if you really want — there really are places on the face of this earth that there are police officers that don’t carry firearms,” Schultz told panelist Michael Eric Dyson.
“I know the right wing’s gonna think I’m crazy for thinking, but if you really want change, you have to institutionally show it to the people that you want to do this,” Schultz added. “That would be part of a big social engineering project if Ferguson’s going to turn around. That’s how I see it.” More
