The spinmeisters are hard at work trying desperately to prove their narrative lacking the most basic of facts…
The mere fact that the US local police force is diverse in nature, not only in its makeup but that they’re uniquely independent units, lacking an overall umbrella command structure. That in itself tells us that it would be extremely hard for any institutionalized bigotry/racism to exist, or even remain, over a short period of time.
A nationalized police force, however, which exists in most countries around the world, can be influenced by a central command to become politicized, something of which we have seen all around Europe in how they treat Antifa and those who run counter to the existing power structure. I have seen it for myself here in Finland.
This alone provides enough ample empirical evidence to suggest that the narrative presently being promulgated by the media and compliant politicians and the radicals who intimidate them, having the consistency of helium.
The key finding was that black suspects were no more or less likely to have weapons drawn against them than other suspects.
The FBI reported that the total number of homicides in 2015 was 15,696. Blacks were about 52 percent of homicide victims. That means about 8,100 black lives were ended violently, and over 90 percent of the time, the perpetrator was another black. Listening to the news media and the Black Lives Matter movement, one would think that black deaths at the hands of police are the major problem. It turns out that in 2015, police across the nation shot and killed 986 people. Of that number, 495 were white (50 percent), 258 were black (26 percent) and 172 Hispanic (17 percent). A study of 2,699 fatal police killings between 2013 and 2015, conducted by John R. Lott Jr. and Carlisle E. Moody of the Crime Prevention Research Center, demonstrates that the odds of a black suspect’s being killed by a black police officer were consistently greater than a black suspect’s getting killed by a white officer. Politicians, race hustlers and the news media keep such studies under wraps because these studies don’t help their narrative about racist cops.
