The true numbers of Blacks & Whites killed by police

1944 Blacks killed by police
3399 Whites killed by police

The fake “house on fire” video that tries to show why “All lives matter is wrong” is actually wrong. To be HONEST, it would actually show ALL houses getting the water. Since Whites are killed at almost twice the number of Blacks, those should be represented as well.
But as with all things, there’s a caveat: an overwhelming majority of people killed by police are justified. So really, the number of UNjustified killings are extremely small.

There is no problem, other than the thugs and vandals that are destroying our history!

Victims were majority white (52%) but disproportionately black (32%) with a fatality rate 2.8 times higher among blacks than whites. Most victims were reported to be armed (83%); however, black victims were more likely to be unarmed (14.8%) than white (9.4%) or Hispanic (5.8%) victims. Fatality rates among military veterans/active duty service members were 1.4 times greater than among their civilian counterparts.

If you put those number in perspective by population size of whites and blacks, then blacks are killed 2.5 times higher rate then whites (Blacks are only 12.1% the total population of the U.S.).
Sorry, it doesn’t hold water no matter how Fox news tries to spin it!

Most likely you got your “numbers” from a fake news website. I’d LOVE to see how the numbers were extrapolated to fit your narrative.
If you want to use “percentages” then why not remove all the justified killings, and let’s see where the chips fall? I guess it’s because sheep like to believe whatever is fed to them… I had to do the research MYSELF, by downloading the spreadsheet and adding up the numbers. I don’t rely on any “news” website to give me statistics that aren’t somehow “spun” to fit a narrative.

As far as I’m concerned, BLM needs to be put down like a rabid coon.

You fail to recognize that blacks commit crimes at a much higher percentage per capita by race population than whites. Your argument does not pass the sniff test no matter how NPR, CNN, ABC, CBS NBC and MSNBC try to spin it.

In 2008 the offending rate for blacks was seven times higher than for whites, so, actually blacks are being killed at a much lower rate than should be expected.

93 per cent of black victims are killed by blacks. Black men commit nearly half of all murders in this country, which is astounding when you take into consideration the fact that they only make up 12-13 per cent of the population.

Don’t believe the propaganda you’re getting from your fake news sources. Watch a more honest and balanced source like Fox News and do a little research.
