Uh, the question of who gets killed by the police has been studied intensively. According to the Washington Post, since 2015, blacks have made up 26% of those who have died at the hands of the police and nonblacks 74%.

In contrast, according to a 2011 Obama Administration report, blacks made up 52.5 percent of all homicide offenders between 1980-2008, with nonblacks as only 47.5 percent.

It seems reasonable that police killings would be proportional homicidality, since the best justification for a police killing is a reasonable fear of being murdered.

But instead, nonblacks are being killed by police in disproportionate numbers to their minority share of being homicide offenders.

In summary, nonblacks are being killed by cops at 3 times the rate of blacks relative to their homicide propensities.

Why?

And why has virtually nobody discussed this question?

Here’s the math:

Blacks are 26.4% of those killed by cops but 52.5% of killers.

Nonblacks are 73.6% of those killed by cops but only 47.5% of killers.

(73.6% / 47.5%) / (26.4% / 52.5%) = Nonblacks are 3.1 times more likely to be killed by cops relative to their homicide rates than are blacks relative to their homicide rates.

By the way, here is (part of) a graph of people killed by the police from the Washington Post:

Why are whites being killed 13/4ths as often as Non-Hispanic Others (Asians, Pacific Islanders, and American Indians, presumably)?

    I’d like to think that the average voter can still be convinced by data and logic that illegal acts by cops (against anyone) are extremely rare and do not represent a pattern of systematic racism. That doesn’t excuse them, but it means we require reform by police departments, not societal revolution.

  9. If you haven’t seen it yet, NYPD Use of Force policy no longer permits placing a knee on a suspect’s shoulder to gain control of a violent criminal. They don’t allow any pressure on the back, chest, shoulder, and if an officer does so – even if accidental – they will be charged with a crime and policy violation. There is a video of it on Youtube.

    The result? More officers will refuse to engage with dangerous suspects. Also, officers will be forced to use impact weapons such as their baton because they fear of accidentally controlling a suspect in the ‘wrong way.’ This means more people will have serious injuries and, thereby, a whole lot more lawsuits against officers and their departments.

    This is how crazy our times have become.

    Why doesn’t Bloomberg show an obese black lady to make their point? That guy there is not obese, IMO – he just has a big gut. The rest of him is not fat at all.

    Secondly, I really only see the last factor out of 4 being a “force” that causes obesity. Sure, prevalence of food desserts is a biggy. There is the great red velvet muffin with cheesecake chunks inside that I get once in a while. It’s gotta have 800 calories. Do you need a big income to buy some bananas, carrots, and oat bran? How much education do you need to be able to read the scale? (It’s usually the big gut that prevents one’s reading the scale.) Then, pollution? Huh? I didn’t know smog had so many calories.

    Black Lies Matter:

    >Black lie

    Black lies are about simple and callous selfishness. We tell black lies when others gain nothing and the sole purpose is either to get ourselves out of trouble (reducing harm against ourselves) or to gain something we desire (increasing benefits for ourselves).

    The worst black lies are very harmful for others. Perhaps the very worst gain us a little yet harm others a great deal.
    Red lie

    Red lies are about spite and revenge. They are driven by the motive to harm others even at the expense of harming oneself. They may even be carved in blood.

    When we are angry at others, perhaps because of a long feud or where we feel they have wronged us in some way, we feel a sense of betrayal and so seek retributive justice, which we may dispense without thought of consequence.<

Then the President could show NUMEROUS video clips of African Americans resisting arrest, punching cops, fleeing arrest, etc.

    The new rules of engagement will lead to more injured/ dead cops and arrestees. Basic jiu-jitsu moves exist for a reason. Like Apple under the Steve Jobs era, They just work.

    The New York City Council in its infinite wisdom is denying basic physics and human anatomy in their attempt to stop police brutality. I think some NYPD officers actually are too quick to employ a chokehold that they learned in their MMA training and this should be discouraged, but such moves should not be made illegal, especially when many civilians are training in MMA and can employ the same jiu-jitsu moves against the arresting officer.

    The new restraint rules prevent officers from placing their knee on a suspect’s back or even straddling a suspect! It is utter insanity and will lead to more violence not less. More people will end up shot because an officer had to pull his firearm as opposed to restraining a suspect by wrestling moves you see on any school playground. Ridiculous.

    One thing people may not realize is that the NYPD likes to throw down. The police in New York get into brawls with suspects. This is possible because the NYPD has so much manpower that four cops show up when one is needed. This is expensive, but it leads to fewer shootings because the cops engage in fisticuffs instead of shooting.

    I will never understand why people get into fistfights with the NYPD, but I assume they are not on average thinking long term. It is entertaining to watch if no one gets too hurt.

    We can say from Sessions defeat and the landslide loss of Trump, already a done deal btw which is why Trump has basically given up and won’t even campaign as he knows he will lose likely all fifty states — is that Immigration Restriction is VERY VERY UNPOPULAR.

    Tuberville won on a open borders, all cuck all the time platform. Face it, the GOP is not stupid. They know far better than Steve, that this is the only way one can win elections. Fought by actual people not idealized abstractions.

    Trump won on a fluke by being very, very lucky. Hillary was both stupid and arrogant and widely disliked over hating working White people for over thirty years and showing it constantly. She made no real effort to campaign where it mattered and told dirt people they were indeed dirt. Constantly.

    Meanwhile the Media and most New Yorkers are DELIGHTED with de Blasio’s abolishing the police. People WANT crime and violence. Article after article was printed pining over the Taxi Driver days of NYC, with violence, sleaze, sex and pornography everywhere, corruption, and brutality. Street life and the African version of it has always sold. Whenever people have a choice between boring safety and security and exciting violence and criminality and debauchery, they will choose the African model every time over the White one. EVERY TIME.

    There is about five percent if we are generous, of the White population that wants a return to say the 1980s. Maybe 1% of that which wants a return to the society, demographics, and stability of the 1950s. Nearly all Whites WANT total violence enabled by Blacks. Nearly all WANT to grovel and cuck. Yeah I don’t get it either for White men — White women I get it — they’ve always had that jungle fever and every chance White women get they vote more black. Violent chaotic impulsive low IQ men are like crack to women everywhere.

    WE are the fringes. The weirdos, the misfits. The true center and core of America or what it is these days are trannies, gays, blacks, SJW White women (which is like 85% of them), Muslims, immigrants, billionaires, and feminists. Ordinary White men who go to work every day are weirdo extremists who President Harris has a final solution for I’m sure.

    Bush, W edition, was as good as it got for White men. And even he just by being White pushed the boundaries of the acceptable. All Trump did was fill our enemies with a terrible resolve to liquidate us once and for all. Yes of course he cucked on foreign students. Cucking is what he does and is. President Kushner won’t allow anything else.

    There just are not enough ordinary (I did not say normal, soy boy mutants are what is normal now for White men) White men to matter anymore.

    The “backtrack” was almost certainly due to internal pressure from spineless congressional Republicans.

    You underestimate the power of the elite Universities. Where do you think the Media get their ideas from? Don Lemon and CNN producers are not smart enough to think of their own ideas.

    Moldbug/Yarvin compared the mainstream media to a church newsletter. The elite Universities are our Cathedral; their tenured professors are our Bishops and Cardinals.

    Isn’t it funny how, all of a sudden, they do know what the phrase “per capita” means after all?

    Well,food deserts are a thing.
    On the South side of Chicago,the BLM boys completely,and I mean completely,wrecked a huge Wal Mart. It was, from what I gather,a new state of the art store,with every food and drink known to the American consumer.
    So…They trashed it,leaving not one avocado,ya might say,left on another.
    Instant food desert.
    Yeah,they’re gonna rebuild. Sheesh,what dopes.

  86. … without giving any evidence of the claim….

    That’s the heart of the real story here; they media has gotten lazy to the point of not even bothering to check the facts. They are throwing the proverbial shit against the wall in the belief that if they throw enough, some of it might stick.

    Proving once again — as if more evidence were needed — that, truly, all roads lead to Python.

  90. The two factors are unrelated. Most murders don’t occur with a cop around. Isn’t this obvious?

    The relevant stat is how many blacks/non-blacks are killed in violent encounters w/the police.

    The recently retracted study by J. Cesaria (sp? why?) indicated that the proportions are pretty accurate. About 26% of the people killed in violent encounters w/the cops are black, and that’s about how many are involved in violent altercations with the cops. And the race of the cop is irrelevant.

    “Is this the first time Trump has explicitly stood up for whites?”

    No, he only said whites are killed more often by police than blacks.

    He has yet to stand up for whites.

  93. @res

    Maybe I’m missing something, but if you look at a list of all the “cancellations” since the Floyd incident, they all seem to be people who were involved in questioning this narrative:

    Scott Alexander had a post arguing that there was no evidence of police racism causing disparate impact.
    Steve Hsu supported the Cesario research.
    Pinker (not sure what he did)
    Tucker’s writer.
    That college student who made fun of Floyd’s drug use.
    James Bennet allowed pro-order Tom Cotton op-ed.
    Police documentary TV shows (Cops, LivePD).
    Deregistering skeptical websites (but not this one yet).

    I think I’m missing some more.

    Is this a real pattern?

    I like the question so I will answer.

    I would prefer a Trump win because it slows things down for four years.

    To me, reduced velocity is the best we can hope for in the current paradigm. The overall direction isn’t going to change.

  98. @Voltarde

    Session’s stupidity in recusing himself was unforgivable. But the political reality is that a Sessions win would have been a big win for all the positions Trump claims to support. Trump, that bloated lump of sociopathic stupidity and egomania, ultimately cares only about himself. he could not get past a fit of pique to do the appropriate political act and support Sessions.

  99. @Harry Baldwin

    “he really fucked Trump over with his stupid recusal”

    I disagree. Trump has only himself to blame for the entire fiasco. He should have fired all Obama appointees everywhere in the government on his first day. There would have been no Russia collusion hoax.

    He’s shooting himself in the foot again by opposing Jeff Sessions, who would have been a solid pro-Trump agenda vote in the Senate. Which suggests the agenda he ran on in 2016 was never his actual agenda. I will not vote for Trump again.

    It isn’t discussed because rank-and-file gentry liberals maintain templates in their head about how the world works and do not actually know anything about simple descriptive statistics. When presented with the descriptive statistics, they get quite confused and incoherent or they start bullsh!!ting. Their advocacy is emotions-driven and derived from their vanity, full stop. With the uber-class of gentry liberals, it’s a mix of that and indignation that people they despise (police officers) are enforcing commonsensical standards on their clientele. Among black chauvinists (which I’m going to guess constitute 30% or more of the black population), the motor of this is rage that people they despise (police officers) are imposing community standards on an aristocratic stratum (them). When the ultimate motor is a mix of sentimentality, vanity, and status-driven resentment, mere data doesn’t stand a chance. One of the people I know I have not convinced is an IT tech who has a Phi Beta Kappa key in her jewelry box. Two others I won’t even bother with have life-sciences PhDs. The IQ fetishists on these boards don’t know what stupid is. In no case does their salary depend on not understanding, but their self-concept does so depend.

    It seems reasonable that police killings would be proportional homicidality, since the best justification for a police killing is a reasonable fear of being murdered.

    Sessions should’ve been made the Secretary of State. That would’ve prevented a lot of future difficulties (and it’s what I was advocating at the time, FYI).

    And yet “White Nationalists” are all saying white guys need to stay home or even vote for Biden rather than vote for Trump.

    By “White Nationalists“, I suspect you mainly just mean Richard Spencer.

    That guy is an asshole who has never been right about anything in his life. And his track record seemingly continues apace….

    Sessions seemed to be covering up for the corrupt FBI, trying to protect its reputation, not releasing subpoenaed documents, etc. Perhaps he was totally cowed by Rod Rosenstein.

    I suspect Rosenstein had spent his 27 years at the Department of Justice learning intrigue. Sessions previous experience as an executive was as US Attorney in Alabama. I think the average US Attorney’s office has 14 employees. Trump had no proper personnel office in place. He made two crucial appointments early on that turned out badly – Rosenstein and Christopher Wray. The person who put these names in the hopper should have been roasting over a slow flame. He still hasn’t fired Wray, even though Wray is responsible for much of the stonewalling.

    I don’t like it that Trump ends up on bad terms with so many people.

    Someone should write a novel about the white nationalist/white trashionalist movements being secret Democrat conspiracies started twenty years ago by prescient strategists who foresaw the rise of dumb prole president. There’s some material to start with, for instance, David Duke started his political career as a Democrat.
