The Black Lives Matter movement claims to have been started to combat police brutality. But it quickly became violent and advocated for the murders of police officers… and around the country, officers have become targeted in ambush-style attacks. In addition to the violence, millions of dollars in property damage has been caused, all in the name of Black Lives Matter, who claim that racist cops shoot black men for no reason. But a new study blows a huge hole in that claim.
It turns out, black officers are more likely to shoot black suspects than white officers are.
The study examined 2,699 fatal police killings between 2013 and 2015, and white officers are not more likely to kill their black suspects. “When either the violent crime rate or the demographics of a city are accounted for, we find that white police officers are not significantly more likely to kill a black suspect,” said John R. Lott Jr. and Carlisle E. Moody, of the Crime Prevention Research Center, the co-authors of the study.
