The Truth About Police Brutality Against Blacks

2020 July 29

Whenever a police officer kills an unarmed black, it’s a lead story for CNN, the “Alphabet Networks,” and liberal papers like the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, etc. Unless it happens locally, they don’t report the murder of innocent black children, and then only a brief mention, coupled with all the other people shot and killed that day. The leftist media doesn’t discuss race when blacks kill whites, which is nine times more likely than whites killing blacks. They never discuss the fact that 93% of blacks who are murdered are killed by other blacks.

While the media gives non-stop coverage to unarmed blacks killed by police, it refuses to cover any details that don’t fit its narrative – the fact that more unarmed whites than unarmed blacks are killed by the police every year or go below the surface (e.g. George Floyd was a career criminal, convicted of armed robbery pointing a loaded gun at a pregnant woman’s stomach or the day he died he was arrested for trying to pass a counterfeit $20 or that he was high on drugs the day he died, George Floyd shouldn’t have died, but if he wasn’t breaking the law he would not have any interaction with the police.

Just as the media worked to convince you that George Floyd was St. George Floyd, it refuses to report overall statistics on unarmed people killed by police, largely because the number of unarmed blacks killed by the police annually is far lower than the media has led the American public to believe.

Matt Walsh covers 2019 statistics:

I have already made the case that systemic racism in law enforcement is a myth. The claim that racist police are prowling the street searching for black men to murder is absurd on its face, and even absurder when you look at the facts. It is by now well publicized — at least in some corners — that, despite all of the panicking and rioting over race-based police brutality, only a very small number of unarmed black men are killed by police each year. But an even closer look at the data, and a study of each “unarmed” killing, reveals that the real number of unjustified police shootings of actual unarmed people — black, white, or any other race — is much smaller still.

First, to put the statistics into perspective, it’s helpful to begin with the overall number of arrests. According to the DOJ, police make about 10 million arrests each year. As a rough average, 7 million of the arrested suspects are white and 3 million are black. Out of that number, last year, 25 unarmed white people were killed by police, compared to 14 unarmed black people, according to the Washington Post database of police shootings. That means about .0004 percent of all blacks arrested were killed while unarmed.

The percentage for whites is comparable. In total, 1,000 people were shot and killed by police in 2019, the vast majority of whom were armed. Still, that’s a mere .01 percent of all , the numbers aren’t exactly the same every year, of course. For example, the Post says 22 unarmed black people were killed in 2017, compared with 31 white people. But the percentage doesn’t change very much.

Also, we should acknowledge that the numbers vary depending on what source you use. USA Today cites a crowdsourced database that has 25 unarmed black killings in 2019. However a look at the individual cases in that database shows that they count as “police shootings” any shooting involving a police officer, on or off duty. Violence stemming from domestic disputes or off-duty bar fights make it onto their list. This is not how you determine whether there is a systemic problem in law enforcement. We need to look specifically at the cases of uniformed police officers shooting unarmed black people in the line of duty. We know that number is already quite low. But a closer inspection of the actual cases shows that it’s even lower than we think. Indeed, it appears that the whole category of “unarmed” shootings is severely misleading.

I looked up all 14 cases included in the Post’s 2019 database. A few are straightforwardly unjustified. Atatiana Jefferson was shot while sitting inside her mother’s home. The officers were responding to a call from a neighbor who was concerned that there’d been a break in at the residence. Officer Aaron Dean peered into a window in the dark, spotted Jefferson, screamed for her to show her hands, and then shot her without identifying himself as a police officer. Dean has been charged with murder. It’s a horrible case, and outrageous behavior by Dean, but it hardly amounts to systemic racism. There’s no reason to think that this is even a case of isolated racism. Dean, it seems, could hardly see who he was shooting, which is what makes it an egregiously unjustified act on his part, but also probably not racist.

Hat tip:

This is what you’ll see if you tune in the NFL this season. No innocuous little decal, but as Citizen Free Press writes. more like a “billboard.”

Compare those to the Cowboys’ Arm In Arm decal – to honor the five slain police officers, which Roger Goodell wouldn’t approve:

    The Democrats truly believe they can unleash a sick combination of Antifa, inner city criminal gangs and BLM and then after they ram “Joe Biden” into the White House they can reel it all back in.

    There will be no “reeling it back in”. Inner city gangs are already moving into the vacuum created by the “defund the police” movement. And that movement follows on the heels of the “no bail” and “empty the prisons” impetus in California, New York and elsewhere.

    Antifa is realizing they can gather large crowds of “useful idiots” any time they want, and then fade away leaving the useful idiots to face the police response…if any.

    And BLM has become a political force, with millions of Americans bowing and scraping before them…and throwing money at them.

    These forces are not going to surrender their newfound POWER. Especially not if “Joe Biden” is rammed into the White House.

    I didn’t write this article…but I could have.

    I think the author’s timeframe is off by a year, however. I think if “Joe Biden” is installed in the White House basement, the REAL powers behind will move very swiftly, and the scenarios outlined will start up in mid 2021.

    With the NFL limiting names on helmets to blacks who have been killed by police, isn’t the NFL contributing to the racial divide and the “war on police?”

    Please see thread above for helmet.

    “The Democrats truly believe they can unleash a sick combination of Antifa, inner city criminal gangs and BLM and then after they ram “Joe Biden” into the White House they can reel it all back in.”

    Why wouldn’t they think that (outside of the innercity gang issue which is already out of their control), after all they can more or less cut off the funding to most of these efforts in short order should they need too, more likely they’re just redirect effort to whatever the BS push of the day\month will be.

    12 – So you can congregate to gamble you money away (and give the state a small piece of the action), but you can’t show up to church, makes total sense right? 😉

    KH #14 –

    Actually, in Michigan people can attend church but the numbers are very restricted. Our parish has over 2,000 families. We now have two masses with a maximum of 120 at each mass. You must RSVP by arrival time (e.g. for the 5 PM Saturday mass – 40 arrive between 4:30 and 4:40, 40 arrive between 4:40 and 4:50 and 40 arrive between 4:50 and 5:00).

    Antifa is their name,
    Anarchy is their game,
    George floyd is their horst wessel,
    With this doppelganger they must wrestle,
    A mirror image of the nazis is their shame.
