Al Sharpton and the other race baiters have done everything they can to persuade the public into thinking police hunt and kill black men in mass number. Those of us who are properly informed know that it isn’t true. According to National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund
682 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty in the past five years in the United States. That averages out to over 136 dead law enforcement officers each year.
Here are the numbers:
2010 â€“ 161
2911 â€“ 171
2012 â€“ 126
2013 â€“ 107
2014 â€“ 117
So let’s compare the data, each year on average 96 black males are killed by white officers. That is about a third of the number of white males killed which is around 300. That fact alone disproves the race baiter’s claim that police are only targeting black men. USA Today reports:
Nearly two times a week in the United States, a white police officer killed a black person during a seven-year period ending in 2012, according to the most recent accounts of justifiable homicide reported to the FBI.
On average, there were 96 such incidents among at least 400 police killings each year that were reported to the FBI by local police.
An article from National review highlights some of the data that these protesters are choosing to ignore.
“A â€œwhiteâ€ homicide victim is over twice as likely to be killed by a black than a black homicide victim is to be killed by a â€œwhite.â€ Sixteen percent of â€œwhiteâ€ victims in homicide incidents involving a single victim and single offender were killed by blacks, compared with only 7 percent of black victims who are killed by â€œwhites.â€ Given the fact that blacks are less than 13 percent of the national population, their homicide rate against whites and Hispanics combined is vastly disproportionate to their share of the population. There were 431 black killers of â€œwhites,â€ compared to 193 â€œwhiteâ€ killers of blacks. Undoubtedly a large percentage of interracial killings involve gang killings among black and Hispanic gangs; the number of non-Hispanic whites who kill blacks is undoubtedly far lower than 193. (The number of non-Hispanic whites killed by blacks is also presumably lower than 431.) Blacks are also disproportionately represented among cop killers. In 2013, blacks made up 42 percentÂ of all cop killers whose race was known.”
Keep in mind thatÂ the FBI continues its usual practice of combining whites and Hispanics into the single category â€œwhite,â€ thus overstating white crime and victimization rates.
So when the liberal media tries to say that black people are the victims, they are peddling a false narrative for their own political agenda.
