Farewell to a Champion of Law and Order

Heather MacDonald has this article at City Journal:

Whatever FBI director James Comey's alleged failings in regard to the investigation of Hillary Clinton's email server and Russian election interference, his precipitous sacking is a loss for America's police officers and public order.

The man whom President Donald Trump now calls a "showboater" and "grandstander" gave candidate Trump the most powerful message of his campaign: policing matters. Months before Trump decried the media's "false narrative" about policing, Comey had warned that the "chill wind" blowing through American law enforcement was resulting in a rising homicide toll among black people. Comey was virtually the only official within the Obama administration to acknowledge publicly the disastrous impact that the Black Lives Matter movement was having on public safety; Obama contemptuously rebuked him for doing so.
