Crime Statistics Show More Blacks Are Killed By Blacks Than By The Police
sort by best latest
You've made some excellent points.
Most people believe if George Zimmerman had been black and Travon Martin had been a 17 year old white teenager the legal outcome would differ.
Equality under the law has been so elusive for far too long.
Interesting take - should all white people be afraid of blacks then since of all the violent interracial crimes committed each year, 85% are committed by blacks? Or are these just rogue blacks?
Ralph, I think you're missing the point. The topic is not about thugs and criminals killing citizens. It's about law enforcement people who took an oath to "Serve & Protect" that are killing people. A society needs to be able to trust cops.
There is this concept in logic; you cannot draw a generalization from a specific. Even if you had a thousand individual examples it would pale in comparison to the millions of police contacts a day.
My take on the question is not solely on the cops, but on where is the worse transgression of blacks being killed. By other blacks or police? Not the police oath. The issue is Intent to kill? In LA blacks intentionally kill blacks
I hear you!
The same can be said of Gary, IN.
However I have to admit none of those criminals ever took an oath swearing to "Serve and protect" the community either.
Therein lies the difference!
People should feel safe and assured with cops.
Succinctly and accurately said!
By the way "Blue lives matter" too!
Law officers by and large do a great job. However it doesn't mean more effort shouldn't be made to root out those who give the badge a bad name. Loyalty sometimes clouds judgment.
Even the blacks agree that there are too many blacks killing other blacks. Not sure about your conclusions.
Maybe the bias is against criminals?
No one disagrees with your statement.
In fact most murders in the U.S. are NOT committed by police. What's upsetting is police are sworn in to "serve and protect".
If the people with badges are killing you just like the thugs where's the help?
More whites are killed by cops than blacks, as well as at a higher rate. Therefore, cops are not targeting blacks disproportionately, but the narrative eliminates discussion of higher rates of black crime.
