Tuesday night in North Carolina outside an apartment complex an armed black man was shot by police, and in an event as to what is standard these days people decided to break and burn every damn thing in sight to show how upset they were at police shooting an armed black man. The chants of the crowd were the standard “hands up don’t shoot” which is a great example of how disconnected from reality this movement is since Michael never put his hands up, and also that pesky fact that he was assaulting a police officer and trying to take his weapon when he was shot, or the other fun one of “stop killing us!”
These are fantastic chants to hear coming from a picket line of people, a lie, and a complaint for someone to stop killing them, it’s possible that since the officer involved in the shooting was black, which has conveniently been left out of the reports I heard this morning, perhaps that’s what they were saying, the black community needs to stop killing each other. Let me explain:
- If you are white or hispanic than 12% of deaths by a fire arm are due to police as oppose to 4% if you are Black a (Washington post and federal police shooting database).
- In the 75 largest cities in America Blacks make up 15% of the population but are responsible for 62% of robberies, 57% of murders, and 45% of assaults (Department of Justice)
- In 2014 more than 6,000 Blacks were murdered, more than Whites and Hispanics combined (Prager University).
- A police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a Black man than that same Black man is to be killed by the Officer (Washington State University, Harvard University).
Heather Mac Donald has released a wonderful book titled “The war on cops” where she covers some of these wonderful subjects.
The after effect of this war on police is that homicides have risen 17% nationally and it has disproportionately affected Blacks more than any other segment of the population, so when you scream “stop killing us” than I have to ask who are you talking to? I published these statistics not only because they’re fascinating but because we’ve mentioned them before and the standard response from Liberals is “I don’t care what statistics you have, I’m talking about how they feel!” or some other dismissive denial of truth and fact to fit their narrative of keeping an entire race of people convinced they don’t have a change so the Democratic party can try and secure a segment of the populations vote.
Share these stats with your friends, and remind them that the President of the United States actually told an entire race of citizens that he would find it offensive if they chose who they voted for themselves. Just remember that.
