• Melissa Harris-Perry: Police “Much More” Terrifying Than Ebola Or ISIS

    While discussing the high-profile police shooting of Ferguson, MO. teenager Michael Brown, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said American law enforcement officers pose a greater threat to her safety than the deadly Ebola virus or ISIS militants.

    “At this point I feel much more terror every time I see blue lights than when I think about Ebola or ISIS,” said Harris-Perry.

    Worse still, Melissa Harris-Perry appears to be terrified of police even if they just happen to be in close proximity to her. “And they can be not blue lights coming for me,” she said, “but just anywhere on the street. I feel like, ‘OK. Please God, don’t make me have to interact here.’ Because these videos make you feel like there is nothing that makes you safe.”

    Melissa Harris-Perry, like most of her network colleagues, is reliably ridiculous. This laughably absurd rhetoric is no surprise coming from a woman who’s poked fun at an adopted infant and placed tampons in her ears on live TV.

    But implying that simply interacting with a police officer on the street will likely end in unfair treatment, injury, or even death, is beyond the pale. And suggesting that American cops are more dangerous than the beheading thugs of ISIS or the Ebola virus, is disgusting.
