Like many, the rioting in places like Ferguson and Baltimore has troubled me. These scenes must cause all Americans to give pause and consider what it says about our society. The partisan media outlets feed us spin. On the left, we hear about a justified response to repeated racist police actions. On the right, we hear about the need for harsher police tactics and respect for rule of law. Of course, there are grains of truth in both; however, I think that we must dig a bit deeper to properly understand how it is that we have arrived at this moment.
