Talked about this with @ezraklein on THE WEEDS but I think it’s kind of bizarre that this blue flu theory of the 2020 murder spike (which I think is right though the evidence is a bit ambiguous) is largely coded as the “pro police” view of things. 
There are a lot of different kinds of places in the United States, but a fundamental issue in the big cities in blue states is that we’ve got a breakdown of civilian control of the police forces.
