    Based on the information you’ve provided we wouldn’t know if it varies year by year or what the results of a prolonged study would be. It only cites stats from one year. The...

    You cited a specific case, the White House. I responded to that specific case that the police chief for the parks claimed the items you mentioned was why they used force. You...

    When a police officer uses deadly force against a white person it is more likely they were armed than a black or brown person.

  6. DaveBN liked StillBlue's post in the thread Where is the proof?.

    Yet oddly enough nobody seems to have seen any of these items, they don't show up in any video and the police and military can't seem to present any confiscated caches. How's...

    You can get a pretty clear picture of what institutionalized racism looks like by simply looking at police shooting deaths where the suspect was unarmed....

    I doubt very many people are happy to hear this sad news. I hope whoever is responsible is caught and punished for this crime. Why do you think blaming an entire political...

    More righty claims that they refuse to back up. I don’t know why this surprises me anymore.

  14. DaveBN replied to the thread Looking at the riots, looting and burnings in Minn.

    Should be easy to cite some examples then. Edit: Your original statement is that it was being egged on. Backpedaling now?

  19. DaveBN replied to the thread Looking at the riots, looting and burnings in Minn.

    Non-violent crime is relevant to crime rates in an area. High crime rates directly contribute to homicides. I’m sorry this is so confusing for you.

    Your last sentence there. I keep hearing that around here. Who is going on TV and egging on the rioters?

    Ah, Ok, thanks for clarifying. It may not be as bad as you think, as White (non Hispanic) is now only 60% of the population. So roughly 40% of the population then would be...

    Different levels of crimes, sure, but non-violent and violent, such as robbery, crime rates directly contribute to homicide rates.

  29. DaveBN replied to the thread Looking at the riots, looting and burnings in Minn.

    What would political affiliation have to do with anything. Pulling a gun on a police officer is a good way to wind up dead. It is incumbent on the LEOs to police their own.

  31. DaveBN replied to the thread Looking at the riots, looting and burnings in Minn.

    Are you saying I as a private citizen ought to pull a firearm on a police officer that is brutalizing an unarmed civilian? Is that your argument?

  32. DaveBN replied to the thread Looking at the riots, looting and burnings in Minn.

    Poverty is a better indicator of crime and homicide statistics. Race of officers involved is still irrelevant.

    The more than 50% number was minority deaths in police shootings and was not dependent on the 629 number. It was not solely black individuals.

    If you can’t explain it, that’s fine, but don’t pretend that’s a substitution for an argument.

    Cops in the moment of an incident are the ones with the power to prevent bad actors from enacting their misdeeds. What do you want a civilian to do?

    I was seeking a report backing up Gatewood’s assertion that Gray’s death was a result of his own actions and not those of the officers involved.

    What does the race of officers involved have to do with disproportionate instances of police brutality against minorities?

  40. DaveBN replied to the thread Looking at the riots, looting and burnings in Minn.

    The disparity comes from the fact that 28% of the population makes up more than 50% of police shooting deaths, and its likely considerably higher. What do protests and riots...
