Wow! As soon as the facts about police shootings are revealed liberal democrats heads started exploding! Priceless! They started to pounce on McDonald as soon as they could!
The inconvenient truth is that more whites get shot by police than Blacks do.
Blacks are more likely to be victim of both homicide and gun violence not by whites by by other blacks.
Question: What the hell took so long to make these findings public? We knew this right?
According to McDonald is the entire narrative of Police shooting and targeting Black is simply not true and a result of selective reporting! Hmm, now we can finally admit that Media is the ones with blood on their hands!
This according to the New York Times Article published!
But when it comes to the most lethal form of force — police shootings — the study finds no racial bias.
It is the most surprising result of my career,” said Roland G. Fryer Jr., the author of the study and a professor of economics at Harvard. The study examined more than 1,000 shootings in 10 major police departments, in Texas, Florida and California.*
The result contradicts the image of police shootings that many Americans hold after the killings (some captured on video) of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.; Tamir Rice in Cleveland; Walter Scott in South Carolina; Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La.; and Philando Castile in Minnesota.*
The study did not say whether the most egregious examples — those at the heart of the nation’s debate on police shootings — are free of racial bias. Instead, it examined a larger pool of shootings, including nonfatal ones.
The counterintuitive results provoked debate after the study was posted on Monday, mostly about the volume of police encounters and the scope of the data. Mr. Fryer emphasizes that the work is not the definitive analysis of police shootings, and that more data would be needed to understand the country as a whole. This work focused only on what happens once the police have stopped civilians, not on the risk of being stopped at all. Other research has shown that blacks are more likely to be stopped by the police.
