‘I Just Do My Own Thing’: Walter Williams, RIP

I'm saddened to write of the death of libertarian economist Walter E. Williams. He passed away Wednesday morning at the age of 84, less than a day after teaching a class at George Mason University, where he worked for 40 years and helped transform his department into a highly respected center of free market scholars. A popular syndicated columnist whose work appeared in over a hundred newspapers on a weekly basis, he was a long-time contributor to Reason and served as an emeritus trustee of Reason Foundation, the nonprofit that publishes this website.

Police unions thwart justice in cases of true malfeasance

Unions, in general, are full of good people whose leadership is singularly power seeking and often corrupt. Police unions are no different. We honor and appreciate our law enforcement, but understand that every bushel has a few bad apples. Police unions protect the bad apples from accountability, thus throwing the good fruit under the bus. If we want to change this, we need to start protesting union bosses, not the good men and women in blue protecting our lives on a daily basis.
