Study On Deaths From Police Officers

The myth of the cop killing ‘epidemic’

Last week, The Washington Post published a study of the police shootings that took place in 2015.

  • White cops shooting unarmed black men accounted for less than 4% of fatal police shootings.
  • In three-quarters of the incidents, cops were either under attack themselves or defending civilians. In other words, doing their jobs.
  • The majority of those killed were brandishing weapons, suicidal or mentally troubled or bolted when ordered to surrender.
  • Nearly a third of police shootings resulted from car chases that began with a minor traffic stop.

It’s definitely too many deaths, but the citizens need to obey the cops and behave in a civil manner. That will remove 99+% of the problems.
