    Cincinnati Cop Charged With Murder in Shooting of Unarmed Man


    The footage from University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing's body cam starkly contradicts his original account of events leading to the shooting death of 43-year-old Samuel Dubose.

    There were 2,640 African Americans murdered that year. In 2,447 cases, the perpetrator was African American. In 193 cases, a white perpetrator killed an African American. That means in 92.69 percent of all cases, the killing was intraracial (within a race), not interracial (between races).

    Thanks for putting up the stats on that and saving me the trouble of searching for it.


    So the REAL issue is that BLACK LIVES MATTER to the people who are ranting about BLACK LIVES MATTER only to white police officers is that BLACK LIVES MATTER LESS THAN 7.31% OF THE FUCKING TIME WHEN THEY ARE SHOT AND KILLED BY ANYONE OTHER THAN OTHER BLACKS.

    Come on... call me a racist for stating the reality of the situation. It won't hurt my feelings and it'll say more about you than it does about me.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/21/police-kill-more-whites-than-blacks-but-minority-d/?page=all
    Adjusted to take into account the racial breakdown of the U.S. population, he said black men are 3.5 times more likely to be killed by police than white men. But also adjusted to take into account the racial breakdown in violent crime, the data actually show that police are less likely to kill black suspects than white ones.

    “If one adjusts for the racial disparity in the homicide rate or the rate at which police are feloniously killed, whites are actually more likely to be killed by police than blacks,” said Mr. Moskos, a former Baltimore cop and author of the book “Cop in the Hood.”

    “Adjusted for the homicide rate, whites are 1.7 times more likely than blacks die at the hands of police,” he said. “Adjusted for the racial disparity at which police are feloniously killed, whites are 1.3 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police.”

    Mr. Moskos listed two possible reasons for the racial disparity. The first is that police assigned to largely black neighborhoods face “more political fallout when they shoot, and thus receive better training and are less inclined to shoot.”

    The second is that police assigned to black communities with high crime rates are more accustomed to dangerous situations and thus are more likely to be able to resolve them without resort to lethal force.

    Figures on police shootings by race are thin on the ground, but Mr. Moskos’s results have some support: The investigative journalism website ProPublica came up with a similar percentage in an Oct. 10 article, reporting that 44 percent of all those killed by police were white, using FBI data from 1980 to 2012.

    The fact-checking website PolitiFact concluded in August 2014 that police kill more whites than blacks after the claim was made by conservative commentator Michael Medved. PolitiFact cited data from the Centers for Disease Control on fatal injuries by “legal intervention” from 1999 to 2011.

    “Over the span of more than a decade, 2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks. In that respect, Medved is correct,” said PolitiFact.

    But PolitiFact gave his assertion a “half true” rating because whites make up 63 percent of the population, while blacks make up just 12 percent.

    “Yes, more whites than blacks die as a result of an encounter with police, but whites also represent a much bigger chunk of the total population,” PolitiFact said in its Aug. 21 post.

    But PolitiFact did not take into account the percentage of those by race involved in violent crime or shootings of police, as Mr. Moskos did....

    ...“The odds that any given black man will shoot and kill a police officer in any given year is slim to none, about one in a million. The odds for any given white man? One in four million,” he said. “The odds that a black man will be shot and killed by a police officer is about 1 in 60,000. For a white man those odds are 1 in 200,000.”

    Here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People

    Since a police officer shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, one month ago, reporters and researchers have scrambled to find detailed data on how often cops wound or kill civilians. What they've uncovered has been frustratingly incomplete: Perhaps not surprisingly, law enforcement agencies don't keep very good stats on incidents that turn deadly. In short, it's a mystery exactly how many Americans are shot by the police every year....

    ...The Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that between 2003 and 2009 there were more than 2,900 arrest-related deaths involving law enforcement. Averaged over seven years, that's about 420 deaths a year. While BJS does not provide the annual number of arrest-related deaths by race or ethnicity, a rough calculation based on its data shows that black people were about four times as likely to die in custody or while being arrested than whites...

    ...The CDC's cause-of-death data, based on death certificates collected at the state level, also reveals a profound racial disparity among the victims of police shootings. Between 1968 and 2011, black people were between two to eight times more likely to die at the hands of law enforcement than whites. Annually, over those 40 years, a black person was on average 4.2 times as likely to get shot and killed by a cop than a white person...

    ...Some of the gaps in the FBI and BJS data can be filled in by the CDC data, but there are limitations here, too. The CDC data does not evaluate whether these killings were justified or not...

    Better data, and the will to collect it, is necessary to get the full picture of how many criminals and law-abiding citizens are killed by police every year. Until then Michael Brown—and others like him—may never even become a statistic.

    Well, now that white policemen have stopped "misconduct" in Baltimore and let black men go about their business it's a bloodbath beyond compare.

    The solution is that blacks need to be self responsible and police themselves. Why does that responsibility fall on white folks?!

    It probably is happening.

    I also think lions die every week too. Ten died last recently during flooding in India. Was that in the news?

    But now this week a lion died due to an idiot white dentist from Minnesota. The perfect outrage story. Outrage stories sell lots of advertising.

    If you go do a bit of research (the US government quit keeping stats on this around 1994) you'll find out that there are 6 or 7 whites killed by police for every 1 black....

    The poster children for police brutality to blacks are overwhelmingly great examples of innocent babes in the woods, aren't they?

    Eric Gardner NYC...
    "I can't breathe (because I'm 250 pounds overweight)"
    an exploiter of homeless people selling cigarettes for $1 each, with 31 previous arrests in 34 years and an outstanding court date for doing exactly what he was doing when he was confronted by police the final time. Plus there's no way a person in a real choke hold could continued to talk.

    Michael Brown Ferguson MO.....
    "Hands up don't shoot"(total bullshit)
    To this day there are people who do not accept the evidence that this thug was caught on video stealing dope smoking material and roughing up a C-store cashier or the testimony from many witnesses that he not only disobeyed but attacked a cop. But let's all riot and burn down the business district of a struggling town to commemorate the death of an ignorant dope smoking thug.

    Samuel Dubose Cinncinati.....
    55 offenses PLUS
    13 times for no drivers license PLUS
    4 times for improper tag (what he was stopped for the last time) PLUS
    8 times for drugs, domestic violence and assault....

    Yeah the other day I was driving while white, and as I was reaching for my phone to text my pot dealer, my concealed weapon accidentally went off, and the cops didn't even pull me over to see if I was okay. They treat us like we're invisible.icon_cry.gif

    ...cases where there is a white victim. In 448 cases, the perpetrator is black. In 2,630 cases, a white perpetrator kills a white victim. So in 85.45 percent of all cases where there is a white victim, there is a white killer... 7% better than black people I guess.

    Let's look at some numbers to put this in perspective.

    93% of Black homicide victims are killed by other blacks.

    Less than 6% of Black homicide victims are killed by whites.
    11% of white homicide victims are killed by blacks.

    Black men under 35 are less than 20% of the black population and less than 3% of the US population but are responsible for 49.6% of the murders in the US and 98.2% of black on black homicides.

    Black homicides due to police brutality are not even 2% of the total black homicides, yet get 30 to 1 coverage in national media over the 93% black on black murder rate that makes up a total of 53% of the murders in the US by less than 4% of the population.

    Only 16% of the black youth population, accounted for 52% of juvenile violent crime arrests, including 58.5% of youth arrests for homicide and 67% for robbery.


    Blacks arrest rates for robbery are 16 times higher than non-Hispanic whites.
    Robberies with white victims and black offenders are more than 12 times more common than the reverse.
