Police Shooting Stats Show Law Enforcement Is Not the Enemy
[link to www.newsmax.com (secure)]

The stats are for 2018 but numbers remained constant in 2019.


"So, here’s the 2018 breakdown of the 995 people shot and killed by the police 403 were white, 210 were black, 148 were Hispanic, 38 were classified as other, and 199 were classified as unknown.
Out of that 995, 47 were unarmed — 23 were white, 17 were black, 5 were Hispanic, and 2 were unknown.
Out of the 30-50 million interactions that the police had with the American public last year, 10 million people were arrested, and less than 0.01 percent were shot and killed by the police.
Out of those 10 million people arrested, 47 of those shot and killed were unarmed, which equates to 0.00047 percent, 17 of which were black."

These men and women are doing the best that they can. You've got to remember there's 320,000,000 of us!
