    What the Media Does Not Want You to Know about Police Shootings And Race

    By Michael P. Tremoglie, Dec. 8, 2014

    White officers were 87 percent of America’s 641,208 police and accounted for 82 percent of justifiable homicides by police in 1998. Black officers were 11 percent of police forces and accounted for 17 percent of all justifiable homicides. According to the FBI, blacks were 43 percent of the known killers of law enforcement officers during the period from 2004-2013. But blacks were only about 13 percent of the U.S. population in 2013. You will not read this in the New York Times.



    Here are several more facts that no other journalist has provided. I have stated these during interviews on the Bill Bennett show and the Seth Leibsohn radio shows: Black officers, from 1980-2008, were involved in 13% of justifiable homicides by police, but 3% of those they killed were white compared to 11% who were black (the differences were due to rounding). You will not hear this from the Boston Globe. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, homicides by law enforcement personnel accounted for 61 percent of the arrest-related deaths for the period 2003-2009. Homicides by law enforcement accounted for 60.9 percent of whites and for 61.3 percent of blacks killed while being arrested for this period. This will not be published in U.S. News.

    Some fascinating facts that highlight how distorted the lefts assertions really are. In particular...
    This monograph stated that black officers committed a statistically disproportionate amount of justifiable homicides by police in 1998. White officers were 87 percent of America’s 641,208 police and accounted for 82 percent of justifiable homicides by police in 1998. Black officers were 11 percent of police forces and accounted for 17 percent of all justifiable homicides. Black officers also killed black felons more than white officers and vice-versa. The black-officer-kills-black-felon rate was 32 per 100,000 black officers in 1998, which is higher than the white-officer-kills-black-felon rate of 14 per 100,000 white officers. The white-officer-kills-white-felon rate was 28 per 100,000 white officers in 1998, which is higher than the black-officer-kills-white-felon rate of 11 per 100,000 black officers.
    So we see that its a false narrative that there is a problem with white cops shooting innocent black teens.

    And perhaps most interesting of all...
    t was estimated, by the FBI, that during these same seven years state and local law enforcement officers made nearly 98 million arrests. This means that only 5 thousandths of one percent of arrests involved the killing of the person being arrested. Think about this - one out of every 20,000 arrests result in someone being killed. According to one source, there is a four times greater chance of being electrocuted than being killed while being arrested.
