    Interesting statistics...

    Higgins: Enough of the lying Ė just look at the data. Thereís no epidemic of racist police officers killing black Americans.
    https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/...top-the-lying/
    Anti-police rhetoric is spreading across the country faster than the coronavirus, because disinformation about racist police shootings fuels its transmission.

    Last month, the horrific murder of George Floyd ignited protests across the country, and despite the involved officers being charged and most Americans agreeing racism and police brutality are wrong, public outrage soon expanded to condemn all police.

    The shootings of Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Rayshard Brooks have become symbols of racist police killings, regardless of the facts. The false narrative surrounding police shootings has caused law enforcement officers to be demonized, assaulted, and murdered.

    The data is clear: There is no epidemic of racist police officers shooting and killing black Americans.

    While every life is valuable, the number of blacks unjustifiably shot and killed by police is microscopic. Numerous scientific studies have proven that when behavioral, demographic, and other contextual factors are controlled, the racial disparity in police shootings disappears.

    Despite these facts, politicians, activists, and the media continue to misrepresent the facts.

    Itís time to stop the lying and set the record straight.

    The Numbers

    Itís rare for police to kill anyone. A black man is more likely to be killed by lightning than by a police officer. In 2019, police shot and killed 1,003 people in the US, according to the Washington Postís Fatal Force database. Of those, 250 were black and 405 white. Police shot and killed 55 unarmed suspects, including 25 whites and 14 blacks.

    Shooting an unarmed suspect can be justified if a suspect makes a furtive movement, attacks an officer, or tries to take the officerís firearm.

    Of the 14 incidents of unarmed black men shot and killed by police in 2019, several involved high-speed car chases, fights with officers, or had weapons recovered at the scene.

    Every shooting needs to be evaluated on its own merits, and only one of the involved officers has been charged with murder, but for this analysis, assume all involved excessive use of force.

    According to the FBIís Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR), there were 686,665 sworn police officers in the United States in 2018. Thatís one unarmed black male shot and killed for every 49,047 sworn police officers.

    In 2018, police made 10,310,960 arrests, according to the FBI, and the race was known for 5.6 million offenders.

    Of them, 1,548,690 (27.4%) were black. There were 229 black males shot and killed by police that year, according to the Washington Post, for a ratio of one out of every 6,762 black offenders. The ratio of unarmed black men shot and killed (23) in 2018 was one out of 67,334 black men arrested.

    Shouldn't title of thread be changed to "police guns down man after he steals cop's taser and fires it at police"?
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Let's not confuse folks with inconvenient details like facts, okay?

    I think if some people had their way, they would want the thread retitled "White racist murders black man in cold blood".

    Yup, I changed my mind later in the thread when more evidence came out. The title was premature.
