I’m assuming that everyone saw the video of this particular interaction in Minneapolis. I would also assume that we all can agree what the cop did was likely 2nd degree murder. The cop needs to got to jail. When something like this happens there are always knee jerk reactions and comments assessing the sociological realities of an incident. I think we can also agree that how a media outlet reports on an issue can be misleading and erroneously skew perceptions. Is there any left leaning person here who thinks Fox News reports accurately on immigration?
What I am looking for here is statistical/factual discussion on the whole picture regarding all police interactions (as best as possible) and from that how to identify the real trend from that data.
This was one source I found:
“Of the 1,146 and 1,092 victims of police violence in 2015 and 2016, respectively, the authors found 52 percent were white, 26 percent were black, and 17 percent were Hispanic.”
Here was another source I found, it’s not the most recent as it is from 2016:
Roughly 52.2% of the arrests were Non-Hispanic White, with 26.9% were black. If I go with the data from these sources then the ratio of white deaths by cops and black death by cops seems to be virtually 1:1? Has anyone else ever looked at this statistically to verify any specific trend?
