Probably because black people break the law more. Cry “racist” as many times as you want.

So breaking the law gives the cops license to kill you now?

Also, ffs read up on the correlation between poverty and crime and also how poc have been prevented from inheriting wealth the way white people have.*

*Obviously this is only one example of the racist reasons poc are more likely to be worse off financially, if you don't like it I have more.

If a gun is pulled on you (most of the police killings) I think you have a right to pull a gun of your own.

Having the right to pull a gun on the police obviously only helps if you actually have one:

Devon Guildford, 17, unarmed

66 of the 98 children killed by police since 2015 have been poc, the majority of deaths despite being a minority of the population.

I didn't include the kids 'armed' with toys or the kids armed with knives and other weapons, despite the fact that they could have been subdued without being shot. Did you know that the British police actually gave American police a lesson on how to do that?

I've seen the numbers that a larger % of white criminals are shot compared to black criminals, so I don't think those examplatory points are valid. Also you don't know the exact situation of all those cases.

So it was 12 year old Tamir Rice's fault for getting shot by the cops because he was playing with a toy gun?
reply
2 ups, 3m,
2 replies
Playing with a toy gun = pointing an airsoft gun at people in a public area. The gun was missing its orange barrel, making it look like a real gun. Had the barrel been in place, the police might not have shown up.

And then a mentally unstable police man shows up to check out the situation. He was unfit for duty, but sadly, he was sent. He was the one who shot Tamir Rice.

So we have a kid going around a public area pointing what looks like a real gun at civilians and a mentally unstable cop being sent over, but it was racism that killed him? Sure, dude.

No, the caller that reported it said he thought it was fake.

I'm not remotely surprised that you are demonising the black kid and sympathizing with the white cop. What's your attitude when a black guy shoots someone? Are you sympathetic? Do you consider his mental health and circumstances?

yeah. if it was the other way around, if the cop was black and the child was white, then these people would have wanted him to go to prison for life.

If you care, here’s how it went...

I heard a noise in my back yard one night. I have two young children so I wake easily and pay attention to things. But since it was late I took one of my pistols with me. We live in an affluent neighborhood but there had been a string of break-ins and I’m not taking chances. I went out into my back yard and found two teenage boys and one of them was holding what turned out to be a replica handgun, pointing it at me. My training taught me to not second guess myself, it was a gun and they were pointing it at me. I nearly fired until they ran away and climbed my gate to get away. In the dark I couldn’t tell the difference between a real gun and a toy. Was I prepared to take chances? Hell no, I have a family to think about and these kids were presenting a threat.

Would I have felt bad for shooting under those circumstances? Not in the least because I in good conscience perceived a threat.

You're right, we can't know everything. The inability to know some things is why we gather data and examine statistics, it enables us to shape our behavior towards things we may not have directly experienced and make decisions about them.

If the data says that the police are killing a disproportionate number of poc, which it does, this enables the problem to be examined and decisions made to improve it.

No they're not. The high rate of black criminality is a factor. And yet still more whites get killed than blacks. Whites have a higher % of the population, yes, but black people cause 53% of all murders while only representing 13% of the population. And up to 3x over represention in nearly all crime stats. Yet they still don't get killed as much as whites. Sorry to disrupt your delusions.

Yes. He's a kid messing about in what looks like an empty park, the cops pull up unnecessarily close to him and immediately shoot him.
The call handler repeatedly asked if he was black or white despite the caller giving a detailed description of what he was wearing and there being nobody else nearby. Obviously his skin color is part of his description but the fact that poc are 2.5 times more likely to be shot by cops makes it an issue.

Yeah, if you calculate it as a percentage it almost doesn't make the police look like trigger-happy bullies who suffer from an inflated sense of superiority because they feel that the law is on their side. Isn't math incredible?

Did you know that police departments reporting how many people they've killed to the FBI is voluntary?*

"The federal government has kept no comprehensive record of killings by police officers, even as a series of controversial deaths set off unrest in cities across the country over the past two years. An annual voluntary count by the FBI of fatal shootings by officers has recorded only about half the true number."

*I can't find any information that says this has been updated.
