    I am going to put this here
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/12/up...shootings.html
    I am not sure of how valid the stats are that they used or there methodology I found the premise to be interesting.
    Essentially it comes down to cops are a lot more hands on with Black People but are no more likely to shoot them than white people.

    Make of it what you will.

      Now that sounds pretty redneck.

          I didn't mean that as an insult.

            LOL, I know exactly what he's writing about, too.

            Noodling, however, is MUCH more redneck.

              That kind of pragmatism is something I admire.

              I still have one of these somewhere:








              Those triggers are a bit sensitive, lol!

                Noodling is further than I'm willing to take this whole redneck thing. That scares the shit out of me. I won't even pretend otherwise.

                  A pretty good article.

                  Mr. Fryer found that blacks were either less likely to be shot or there was no difference between blacks and whites.
                  It doesn't surprise me that likelihood for use of lethal force is just as likely, even shitty people who like to bully people (whether racial bias is a factor or not) aren't necessarily psychopathic murderers. It also doesn't surprise that non lethal use of force is higher.

                  Even when the police said that civilians were compliant, blacks experienced more force.
                  I imagine even white suspects who are compliant, but for whatever reason the LEO in question was angry that day (dick dipped in the water while he was taking a shit at the 7/11, fight with SO etc.), receive excessive non lethal force to some extent after compliance or subdual. It just happens now that there is statistical evidence for greater use of non lethal force towards black subjects.

                  I imagine there's also a trend of more police interaction for otherwise law abiding black citizens as well. These are the Bureau of Justice Statistics page on traffic stops. According to BJS black drivers were more likely to be stopped than white or Hispanic, and black and Hispanic drivers stopped were more likely to be searched in the given year.
