  1. Bottom Line: Police are shooting just about the right number of blacks.

    • Agree: ben tillman
  2. The most notable stat is the % of shots fired at police that are fired by whites (5%). If NYC was all white people, the # of shots fired at police would drop by 95%. One of the reasons the cops are trigger happy is that they are genuinely afraid for their life and 95% of the reason they are afraid involves non-whites.

    The % of shots fired by whites which actually hit police, and even more so, kill them, will necessarily be much higher. It kind of works like free throws, eg, Rick Barry and Wilt Chamberlain.

    (I'm sure there are more recent examples; you can see how long it's been since I've paid attention to hoops.)

  3. Clearly, the deceptive criminal George Lloyd had a gun hidden in his anus, and our heroic, kneeling officer attempted a long disarming.

  4. Question: Are Puerto Ricans classified as white or hispanic in NYC?

  5. Thankfully, for the police, blacks seem to be pretty poor shooters, seldom hitting the cops. On the downside, often their stray shots hit some unfortunate child in the hood. That would be a telling stat, the number of children, infant and preteen, shot by errant bullets fired by blacks.

    That happens quite a lot whenever any shooting occurs. Peoples first (and bad) instinct is to go look out the window.

    (I found this second video just by accident, it looks quite funny.)

    The cops are typically pretty poor as well, so a bad situation all around.

  6. Facts do not matter to the Left. It is always all about Who/Whom.

  7. Here’s a good one you’ll all love.

    Cops shooting cops!!! Isn’t it wonderful!!! They’re good shooters, those cops.

    “A Texas sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a fellow deputy Friday morning after confusing him for a suspect while they both were searching a vacant home.

    Turns out, there was nobody inside the house when the four law enforcement officers entered to search for possible trespassers.

    They had been responding to a call from a woman who became suspicious after seeing “someone running down the street,” according to KXAN. The woman apparently believed it had something to do with the vacant house because the cops were told to do a “property check in” there.

    The deputy who died has been identified as Caleb Rule, 37, who worked for the Fort Bend Precinct 4 Constable’s Office. The deputy who fired the shot has not been identified but he works for the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.”

    Civilized people of a democracy view this accident as tragic and are thankful it is rare.
    Nasty negroes such as yourself thump your chest thinking you have something to gloat about.

  8. Some fun headlines that I know will tickle all you good-hearted women pink.

    Missouri Cops Attack Mother and Son, Falsely Accusing them of Stealing TV.

    NH Cops Break Man’s Window, Drag him out of Car Claiming Car was Stolen.

    Ky. Cops Lied on Warrant that led to Innocent Woman’s Death in Botched Drug Raid

    Louisville Cops Sued for Assaulting, Choking Man during DUI Traffic Stop (They love the choking, don’t they? Don’t know why. Something to do with their sickoness I imagine.)

  9. These stats have been debunked so many times it’s not even funny

    Read the 1619 project

    You could have gone with Steve Nash and Shaquille O’Neal, but they are retired. JJ Redick and Andre Drummond.

    DeAndre a Jordan used to be below 40% but he’s gotten better. This is more a big man issue stereotype than race. Steve Adams is a kiwi and a pretty good player but struggles at the line.

    Calvin Murphy was almost as good at the line as Barry.

    I think the worst free throw shooter I can recall was Kim Hughes. A stiff, but he started for the last ABA champions, the1976 New York Nets.

  13. Yeah, who were the 3 whites who were armed with firearms and the 1 white who fired on the police?

    And who was the 1 Asian who was armed with a firearm, and didn’t fire on the police (and was presumably the one killed by the police)?

    The greatest injustice here is against Asians!

    No. of blacks who shot at cops: 15
    No. of blacks killed by cops: 11 (73%)

    No. of Hispanics who shot at cops: 3
    No. of Hispanics killed by cops: 2 (67%)

    No. of whites who shot at cops: 1
    No. of whites killed by cops: 2 (200%!)

    No. of Asians who shot at cops: 0
    No. of Asians killed by cops: 1 (Nobody shot at the cops, but they killed one anyway – just to make sure there was representation.)

  14. A fact hardly mentioned anywhere: White police officers don’t shoot more blacks than black police officers:

    The NPR discussion of the study is pathetic...

    1. "We already knew that silly..."

    2. "Just because black police officers are more likely to shoot black suspects than white police officers, that doesn't mean that racism is still not the cause!"

    3. No mention at all of racial imbalance in committing crimes, and therefore a racial imbalance in the number of interactions with police officers.

  18. Innocent skeet shooters slandered by white nationalist cops.

  19. Nobody told me there’s math involved!

  20. In this timeof looting and rioting, I am loath to put in a word for the scum. However, nobody rioted over gunstats. They rioted over a video of an officer kneeling on an arrestee’s neck while the life drained out of him so that the officer didn’t have to exert himself in some other restraint method. If that hadn’t happened, that video wouldn’t exist. It doesn’t justify the civil unrest, but this is not a case of misrepresented stats.

    It most certainly is.

    The riots are prompted by media lies that pretend that this has a white-on-black racial dynamic, when the truth is that whites are killed more often than blacks, and white cops are no more likely to kill civilians unjustifiably.

    The cops are typically pretty poor as well, so a bad situation all around.
