The following email exchange took place between Dr. Walter Block and James Waldrop:
James Waldrop:[G]oing back to my question on police shootings, what would be yourRW
response to somebody who would criticise you for "defending the state," so
to speak, in the Mike Brown situation?
Dr. Walter Block
I would say that they are deifying the government. If a cop stops a rape
or murder, he is a good guy, although, of course, the manner in which his
salary is financed, through coercion, is illicit.
