Rougeau on Ferguson

Vincent Rougeu, the dean of Boston College Law School, and author of Christians in the American Empire, has written a very perceptive and nuanced pice on Ferguson. He touches upon issues of class as well as race, and also highlights the role played by the American culture of guns--which is not shared in other cities with the potential for racial and cultural clashes, such as London.

It's well worth a read.
