The CDC database counts all violent deaths, including those as a result of “legal intervention,” which is defined as “injuries inflicted by the police or other law-enforcing agents, including military on duty, in the course of arresting or attempting to arrest lawbreakers, suppressing disturbances, maintaining order, and other legal actions.”
According to the CDC and for fatal firearm shootings, from 1999 through 2014, there were 3,412 white (non-Hispanic) people shot and killed during legal interventions, 1855 black (non-Hispanic), 1297 Hispanics, 137 Asians and 121 native American Indians. The total fatalities by police during that period totals 6822.
Hands Up Don't Shoot Is Bullshit
Michael Brown attacked Darren Wilson in his patrol car by hitting him then tried to gain control of the officer's gun. Once he relented, Wilson exited his car and ordered Brown to stop. The grand jury said that Michael Brown might have had his hands up but the forensic evidence supports the officer's claim that Michael was in fact "charging" at Officer Wilson at that moment.
So, there you have it.
- Cops shoot blacks LESS OFTEN than white people during a legal intervention based on a large data set by the CDC.
- Michael Brown was a thug and he attacked an armed police officer TWICE in one encounter. Brown was in a murderous rage and was shot fair and square by an officer protecting himself.
Black lives DON'T matter to black people, as blacks commit the majority of violent murders in this country, and 90% of those murders are against other blacks. Black lives only matter when the national press is involved.
