I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this… it’s something a friend just sent. But it sure is interesting…
If any are uncomfortable with the accuracy of these numbers you can research at: Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program — FBIUniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program | Federal Bureau of Investigation
According to the FBI Uniform Crime Report and the Washington Post, last year there were 10 million arrests by police…10 Million!!
Out of those 10 MILLION arrests there were 1,004 officer involved fatalities.
Out of those 1,004 officer involved fatalities 41 were unarmed.
Out of those 41 officer involved unarmed fatalities, now you might find it hard to believe I know, but out of 41 deaths, now hear this…
19 were white – 19 WERE WHITE!
9 were black – 9 WERE BLACK!
Now 1 is 1 too many but to me 41 out of 10 million is pretty damn great!
Now ask me how many police officers were killed in the line of duty…take a wild guess…
89 police officers, but where’s the news on that one?
Just to bring it home to you. Take a guess at how many people were shot in CHICAGO just this last weekend.
In Chicago last weekend 82 people were shot within a 48 hour period.
Of those 82 people 19 people died.
Yes you got it. In Chicago last weekend alone there were more black people killed by (wait for it…) black people than were killed by police all last year!
The hypocrisy is mind blowing.
