The “Ferguson effect” has had chilling consequences for America’s law enforcement:

Acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) said Wednesday that he agrees with FBI Director James Comey that the so-called “Ferguson effect” is making police reluctant to do their jobs.

The Hill reported that DEA acting administrator Chuck Rosenberg told reporters Wednesday that Comey was “spot on” when he suggested recently that the divide between law enforcement and anti-police activists is causing police to be reluctant to do their jobs and leading to a spike in violence.
