PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE AND LOOKING AT FACTS & STATISTICS – SOMETHING FOLKS DON’T LIKE TO DO

In 2016 year to date: 556 people have been killed by police in the USA. Of that,  556 people killed by police 300+ were white. 136 were black, 120 other minorities.  Of the 136 black people killed by law enforcement. 128 were men, 8 were women, 76 were armed, 9 had toy guns and 12 were unarmed.

Same time frame: In Chicago, 2000 people were victims of gun violence from people other than police. Out of that number, approximately 319 people were killed. Out of that number 263 were black, 60 were Hispanic and 17 where white/other. Out of those number, 46 assailants were black, 16 were Hispanic, 2 were white/other and 270 were never arrested.

That same time frame, 4 people were killed by police.

Maybe Drake, Beyonce, Jesse Williams and all the liberal white folks who live in their nice safe non-violent communities might want to consider these numbers before speaking from the ivory towers looking down on the rest of us.
