A good guy with a gun: Better policies are the only way to reduce police shootings

I agree that police kill too many people of all races but just stop pushing that false narrative that police target blacks and hispanics. It just isn’t helpful at all. The Vox blog you link to says 31% of people killed by Police are black and 52% are white. FBI stats and DOJ stats say blacks commit about 31% of all crimes and whites about 52% of all crimes. The rate each race is killed by police almost exactly correlates with the crime rate of each rate. Can you explain what you mean when you write “police shooting victims are disproportionately black” No data or statistics I can find says that’s true when adjusting for the crime rate.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
