Rush Limbaugh Show mentions our work on policing

18 Apr , 2021  

Jason Lewis, the substitute host for the Rush Limbaugh show, mentioned our research on blacks being more likely to report violent crime to police than whites.

Jason Lewis: . . . It seems that people still want the police. In fact, my old friend Dr. John Lott as well as Heather Mac Donald — people that have actually looked into the criminal justice statistics — show that black folks are nine percentage points more likely to call the police, more likely to report violent crimes committed against them to the police than white folks.
