    I understand your desire to discredit the source, but actually, no, the Facebook group didn't 'sample' anything. Follow the link I provided earlier and you'll see each and every shooting death is documented by a link to a credible news source. 538 did a sample of that comprehensive list and found none that weren't adequately supported.

    Re: Baltimore on edge after arrestee's fatal spine injury

    Looks to me like it is MORE than plausible that the injury occurred during the ORIGINAL scuffle. They loaded him up without being aware of a physical problem and then in transit they became aware of it and called paramedics.

    "In custody" means nothing. Especially if there was a spinal injury they were unaware of. That would actually I think it would be highly likely that injury would occur while in transit. It isn't likely they were handling him like a head, neck, or back injury.

    Perhaps they should hire more physically fit cops so they don't have to rely on excessive uses of force to get their point across. You know, like that fat cop in Florida who tazed that girl because he had no hope of catching her, the one who smacked her head on the pavement and died?

    Math tells me that 400/year x 10 years = 4,000 in 10 years. This is the absolute minimum and known to undercount police deadly shootings.

    More reasonable estimates range from about 600-1,000 deadly shootings per year. Over 10 years, the total death toll FAR exceeds 4,500, which was the question posed and answered by me.
    In 2012, according to the CDC, 140 blacks were killed by police. That same year 386 whites were killed by police so the 400 number is for all deaths at the hands of cops. That means that a Black man being killed by cops every 28 hours is false. the number in 2013 was every 63 hours and most of those in the hours of darkness when it's very hard to see if the resisting punk is armed or not. The number for the poor misunderstood and mistreated white boys was 22 hours.

    Another man dead at the hands of police.

    The police also have video of the arrest that has not been made public yet. Will be interesting to see the entire incident.
    I have noticed you starting a fair number of these 'bad cops' threads?


    I just see cops as people. Some are good, some are bad.

    You seem to be fixating on the bad for some reason.

    I'm not sure what your point is but the numbers are clearly higher than the official 400, and if you follow the links, the actual number looks to be 2.5 times the official number and closer to 1,000/year or a deadly shooting of someone (white, black, hispanic, other) about every 8 hours.

    most of those in the hours of darkness when it's very hard to see if the resisting punk is armed or not.
    Just curious, if the cop can't tell if the "punk" is armed, the correct rules of engagement are to kill the "punk"?

    Swallow the turd, jMac. You're on the wrong side of this argument. We all like and approve of a good Police Force. Cops are as important as teachers. Their job is deterrence and that can be just the visibility of a Police Car, or the presence of an Officer for crowd control. They're not targets being killed willy-nilly but they do seem to be killing willy-nilly. The numbers are not debateable, nor incorrect. Even if you don't like them, they are real.

    Likely due to the immense damage bad cops can cause, the deaths they cause, and how they negatively effect police/community relationships. Bad government cannot be permitted to continue being bad, it has to be corrected.
