    Right, we naturally don't collect reliable numbers for something so trivial as deaths at the hands of our police. It appears the best numbers are collected by some dude who runs a......Facebook page! Tells you volumes about our priorities, and that police killings are WAY down at the very bottom of any list.

    So you're just going to make some up?

    Me thinks the media and the race baitors have made you hysterical.

    White or latino guy dies in police custody? Oh. What's for lunch? Black guy dies in police custody? National media attention and civil rights investigations.
    Really, personally, this is not a race issue. I care VERY MUCH about anybody hurt or killed in police custody, or during apprehension. I wish to see this issue addressed nationally and an end put to it.

    I'd say by his comment that it does.

    I think there are a lot of factors that are at play. The media, the rate of poverty among African Americans, the rate of crime among the poor, and popular culture to name a few. I think it's quite possible, even probable that black men are the victims of unjustified police violence at a much higher rate than white men given the fact that African Americans (men and women) make up about 12% of the population. What I'm not ready to say is that the prevailing attitude among police is that it's ok to shoot black men.

    It would be lot cheaper tho, huh? To have alot less costs for prisons and courts? I hear that stoning in the Middle East is cheap AND good exercise.
    Yikes!!

    What you forgot to name is technology and the fact that the brutality is being videoed on an almost daily basis these days for the world to finally see, altho your other observations are relevant also.
