Harry Reid thinks crushing poverty explains the violence of the riots—though he is quick to say he does not condone the violence.
Before I explain how wrong he is, let me first thank Harry Reid for bringing up justice reform as a bipartisan issue. The Daily Caller reports that he did so:
So instead of turning a blind eye, let’s work together and take this problem seriously. There is bipartisan work being done on criminal justice reform and that is a good start.
For once, Reid is absolutely right. I have blogged about justice reform before.
But Reid is wrong to claim that poverty causes people to commit crimes against others.
