I posted this in another thread, but clearly it needs to be restated. More whites are killed by cops than blacks are.

www.washingtonpost.com...

I can't believe we've come to the point where we(or the OP anyways) are DISAPPOINTED that the guy WASN'T killed.


More Whites are shot in sheer number but percentage-wise, it's more Blacks. White is about 72% of the country and Black is about 13% of the country. Yet the numbers of Blacks shot is more than half the amount of Whites shot by the police at White-494 to
Black-258.


Not saying this man's life is unimportant. Every life is important and police misconduct is a serious problem but those who imply that less Blacks are shot by police are mistaken.

Back ground on US UNCUT who posted the article:

en.wikipedia.org...

Info on Wake County, NC"

www.wakegov.com...

Look at the demographic, trends and outlook PDF file.

The powerpoint has a slide (12 of 40) for population diversity. 61% white. 19% black. 5.8% Asian. 10% Hispanic...or 34.8% not white.


What do the population diversities of the other 2 victims look like where they live (Louisiana and Minnesota)?

What are the crime rates in the 3 different areas? (Wake County, NC and wherever the other two live in Louisiana and Minnesota)

Let's paint the picture since we are dealing with 3 different states and 3 different demographics and 3 different law enforcement groups.

I'm not advocating anything. US UNCUT appears to be like a National Enquirer kind of news sight.

Can't figure the OP out. Is it just race baiting?


The go to name when you want a thread derailed and forgotten. It is about how police went out of their way to not kill this man but the other two men weren't afford the same options.

Man accused of shooting at Wake deputy




The incident began when Deputy D.R. Farmer was patrolling in the area of Old Creedmoor Road and Raytown Road. A motorist flagged him down and said a man was pointing a shotgun at passing motorists


Raleigh man fires handgun at Wake County deputy




Ray pulled out a handgun after the deputy wrestled the shotgun from him. Ray fired a shot from the handgun during the altercation. The round did not strike anyone


Better sources for you?

I posted this in another thread, but clearly it needs to be restated. More whites are killed by cops than blacks are.

So then why was the rate of death by cop 2015 5x higher in young blacks than it was in young whites when again blacks are only 13.2% of the population.

5x higher link

White privilege. If he had been black or brown we wouldn't be having this discussion.


This isn't the case. It's your racist generalization.



Oh look at all these heavily armed black people who didn't get shot by sub human whites!

It's fun to mock but as a white guy I can see their point.

Too bad so few have empathy in this world.......


It's not empathy, you're just agreeing with racist generalizations in an attempt to prove you're not a witch....er racist.

Was working with the source provided. I didn't say I didn't believe it just that the source looks like a "sensationalized one" . Thanks for the extra sources.

That's a helpful link.

While looking through some of the people that were shot and killed by police, I came across a 12 year old white girl, Ciara Meyer, from Pennsylvania.


Ciara Meyer, an unarmed 12-year-old white female, was shot on Jan. 11, 2016, in an apartment in Penn Township, Pa. A Pennsylvania constable was serving Meyer's father with an eviction notice. Meyer's father pointed a rifle at the constable, who opened fire. The bullet traveled through the father's arm, striking Ciara.


She was the youngest.

Assuming that this site is accurate, people really should look into it.

According to you he couldn't get a gun, to expensive. Right?

So does anyone have the stats comparing how many cops are convicted when shooting whites and blacks?

I think cops are more prone to shoot blacks because there is less convictions compared to shooting whites and convictions.

Could be wrong.

You can't see the difference in the way blacks are treated by cops as opposed to whites?


In my old neighborhood we all got crap from the cops, mostly because all of us were acting like idiots. White, black and in between.

Was it the same cop that shot all three perps??

Your thread is irrelevant.

Where was white privilege with this unarmed white guy yesterday?




Cellphone video shows police officers shooting an unarmed 19-year-old Fresno man lying on the ground at a gas station last month.

The video, obtained by the Fresno Bee, shows Dylan Noble lying on the ground on June 25 as two officers with their guns drawn stand feet away from him. As officers yell, “Keep your hands up,” and other commands, one shot is fired. Seconds later, a third officer approaches the pair, and another shot rings out. At one point during the video, Noble can be seen raising his arm and saying, “I’ve been shot.”

The shooting has sparked an online petition demanding that the Fresno Police Department release body camera footage of the incident. The shooting comes amid national outrage over the number of shootings by police involving black men. In this case, Noble was white.

You folks should be ashamed about trying to make everything into racial issues rather than just bad cops who have an inability to execute the responsibility they hold.

Look at your crayolas crayons, there is the color white in there along with all the others.

And I think "they" want to rip us all off.

Per your source that is incorrect.

well clicking the link in their post goes here.


990 people shot dead by police in 2015

which clearly shows that 494 white people killed, and 258 black people killed.

clicking the link in the quote in your post goes here.
Fatal Force 509

now i'm almost positive that when you quote someone here on ATS your suppose to use the exact post not modify it to suit your needs.

not only that in your link click the filter " + race", and it says 238 white and 123 black.

so who ignorant now.
Deny Ignorance.
