US police shootings: How many die each year?

Our lying chicken $hit fake media won't print this, but the Brits went out and dug up some info.  The only stat I'd question in this article is the percentage of population they credit African Americans with.  The article claims 13%.  I have seen the range vary from 7-13%.  I submit, due to illegal, criminal, immigration, the population of the people of African decent in the United States is probably closer to 7%.  Anyway, lies of the fake media, the demoncrap commies, and our rinos exposed.  If you add the number of blacks and latinos together, that are shot each year, it is still less than the number of whites that are shot by the police.  Of course, the Brits being liberal get into the "percentage of population" thing to make the point that blacks are shot at a higher rate.  Latinos too!  Enjoy!

Quote:
Killed by police:
Official data on the number of people killed by the police turns out to be remarkably unreliable.
"We can't have an informed discussion, because we don't have data," FBI Director James Comey said in the House of Representatives in October.
"People have data about who went to a movie last weekend, or how many books were sold, or how many cases of the flu walked into an emergency room. And I cannot tell you how many people were shot by police in the United States last month, last year, or anything about the demographics. And that's a very bad place to be."
He had previously said it was "unacceptable" that the leading sources of this information were newspapers, the Washington Post and the Guardian.


Quote:
The big question is whether that is evidence that the police are discriminating against African Americans. There's an obvious argument that it is: African Americans are just 13% of the US population, and yet 26% of the people killed by the police.
But there's another way to look at these numbers. Nearly 50% of convicted murderers in the US are African Americans. Why that number is so high is a difficult question to answer. So is the question why African Americans are also far more likely than whites to be murder victims.
The point is that if African Americans are more likely to be involved in violent crime - both as perpetrators and victims - then the higher rate of police shootings may not be surprising.

Here's just one example - Chicago, my home town.

It isn't white people going and killing black people.

I've heard this argument for so long, I'm convinced the commies are responsible for it.  Grin
The fact that 13% of the population is black, really has nothing to do with it.  When you compare the size of the white population and records to the blacks, it's lopsided.
Read this article and then explain what right the blacks have to protest.

Yet, when you look into the statistics:
Quote:
– FACT: Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks commit around half of homicides in the United States. DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, blacks committed 52% of homicides, compared to 45% of homicides committed by whites.

More up to date FBI statistics tell a similar story. In 2013, black criminals carried out 38% of murders, compared to 31.1% for whites, again despite the fact that there are five times more white people in the U.S.

– FACT: From 2011 to 2013, 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black. This figure is three times higher than the 13% black population figure. When you account for the fact that black males aged 15-34, who account for around 3% of the population, are responsible for the vast majority of these crimes, the figures are even more staggering.

– FACT: Despite the fact that black people commit an equal or greater number of violent crimes than whites, whites are almost TWICE as likely to be killed by police officers.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control, between 1999 and 2011, 2,151 whites died as a result of being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks.

Critics argue that black people are overrepresented in these figures because they only represent 13% of the population, but they are underrepresented if you factor in violent crime offenders. In other words, you would expect the number of blacks and whites killed by police to be roughly equal given that they commit a roughly equal number of violent crimes, but that’s not the case. Whites are nearly 100% more likely to be victims.

And what about black on white violence in general?



Just the Facts, M'am!

UCAV, most stats I've seen put blacks between 12-13%. Fact of the matter is more white are killed by police than blacks. The problems is that "African Americans" are far more likely to engage in deadly altercations with police.
