Is There Really an 'Epidemic' of Racist Police Shootings? Several Studies Say No.

Thats because you made a stupid point

  1. Data collection from one area doesnt mean anything for the rest of the country. Especially when New York showed itself to be hella discriminatory with Stop and Frisk data (where it showed they specifically target black and brown people regardless of the make up of the community.

“According to the court’s opinion, between 2004 and 2012, the New York Police Department made 4.4 million stops under the citywide policy. More than 80 percent of those stopped were Black and Latino people. “


“Black and Latino people were disproportionately stopped regardless of the demographic make-up of the neighborhood. For example, in the 17th precinct, which encompasses Kips Bay and Murray Hill, black and Latino people make up just 8 percent of the population but 75 percent of the people stopped by police.”


“Nearly 9 out of 10 stopped-and-frisked New Yorkers have been completely innocent”

  1. There is one national registry for police shootings and its VOLUNTARY. They think it’s underreported by 50%!

“Until recently, the only nationwide data on FOIS was compiled yearly in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Uniform Crime Report. On a voluntary basis, departments report the number of justifiable homicides by on-duty law-enforcement officers. Not only are these shootings underreported (by ∼50%; ref. 2), such reports do not provide information about the officers or circumstances surrounding these shootings”
