July 13, 2016—Jacob Hornberger and Richard Ebeling, both of the Future of Freedom Foundation, consider the connection between the US empire and the domestic conflict between police and blacks on this latest episode of The Libertarian Angle.

“That militarization, that mindset, has really seeped into American society,” Hornberger tells Ebeling, “and I think you see a lot of it in the police department, and you see a lot of it in the black community too, where it’s perceived that the cops, in general, are waging war against blacks. And then the cops are looking at it like, oh, well, we have to consider this as a war-time situation also.”
