Re: Police misbehavior thread

It is entirely plausible to have policies that adversely affect certain ethnicities while reducing death rates *cough*druglaws*cough*, but that's not the point. The point is that it's not the number of dead that's the problem but the psychological effect of racist deaths (aka hate crimes) that is.

Yes, armed includes other weapons. Officially, 7% had no weapons, unofficially, a bit more had no weapons before the police killed them, so it's more like 10%.

Umm, no zohar, the point is that the cops are harassing black people more often; the deaths are a symptom of that, rather than the direct result of a murderboner that cops get at the sight of black men.
