Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani made a series of comments on race, crime, and policing on when he was interviewed recently on “Face the Nation.” I am a strong critic of Giuliani’s approach to the intersection of race, crime, and policing. Giuliani said several objectionable things in his interview that he could not defend. The mystery is why his critics keep ignoring those comments and attacking other comments me made in that interview that are essentially correct. In the course of their efforts to bash Giuliani his critics are repeatedly misstating what he said in the passages they seek to ridicule and demonstrating such fundamental analytical errors that they must be allowing their eagerness to hurt Giuliani shut down their critical faculties.
