Proportionality Shows Almost 100% of Police Contacts With Citizens DO NOT RESULT IN EXCESSIVE FORCE


Comparing the number of excessive force complaints with the number of times cops have contact with citizens per year the percentage is SO LOW that if you are forced to round off that number, 0.003 9%, you have to round off to 100% and say that almost 100% of officer contacts with citizens do not result in uses of excessive force.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Based on recent media attention one might wonder what’s with all the police violence. Are the police out of control? Are there any honest cops left?

As of 2012 there were 313,910,000 people living within the US. For that same year the FBI said there were just over 670,000 sworn peace officers. This equates to being less 2 1/2 peace officers for every 1000 people. So our peace officers represent less than a quarter percent of the population and in the performance of their duties will come into contact with about seventeen percent of the population, and then subsequently arrest less than four percent of the population, and that’s assuming that no single person was arrested more than once that given year.

Excessive force complaints can come from anyone. Let’s actually focus in on the scope of officer contacts. So in a year’s time 670,000 cops had contact with over 53,000,000 citizens. These contacts could be anything from being pulled over, issued a citation, given a warning, interviewed as a witness, requesting a service, involved in a collision, reporting a crime witnessed., victim of a crime, disabled motorist, consensual encounter or even being arrested.

Of all those millions of contacts the Bureau of Justice Statistics last identified that 26,000 complaints were made due to excessive force, this is not quite half of 0.1 percent of all police contacts. Of those complaints only 8% were sustained having any form of merit or evidence. That’s 2080 sustained complaints, or 0.003 9%, of all law enforcement contacts.

To put things in perspective in the same time frame eighty four thousand three hundred and seventy six people in the u.s. reported being forcibly raped. Thirty thousand eight hundred were killed in traffic collisions and fourteen thousand eight hundred and twenty seven were murdered. So in regards to true excessive force by the police you are seven times more likely to be murdered, fifteen times more likely to be killed in the burning wreck that used to be your car and forty two times more likely to be raped, but probably not by a cop.

Black People are more racist than Whites: 2.4 times more likely to commit Hate Crimes

According the the FBI Black People are almost 2.5 times more likely to commit a Hate Crime. In 2015 White people committed 48.4% of Hate Crimes while being 63% of the population. Black People committed 24.3% of Hate Crime despite only being 13% of the population. I am not a mathematician but I think that figures out to Black People being 2.433 times more likely to commit a Hate Crime. Does this mean Black People are 2.4 times as racist as White People?

FBI Report Shows That Cop-Killers Are Inspired By Black Lives Matter, Politicians, And The Media

The Washington Examiner: An internal FBI investigation into the spike of attacks on law enforcement has determined that revenge, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the media’s assault on police shootings, and criticism from politicians, is the what motivates a “majority” of those targeting cops.

“Law enforcement officials believe that defiance and hostility displayed by assailants toward law enforcement appears to be the new norm,” said the internal report stamped “For Official Use Only.”

Just Tuesday, the start of National Police Week, two Chicago police were wounded in “targeted” shootings, the latest in the escalation of attacks on the badge.

The four-page report provided to Secrets said that an anti-police wave following the 2014 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., is what drove most of those accused of killing law enforcement officers in 2016. In 53 shootings, 60 police were killed last year.

The report studied 50 of 64 killings of police in 2016 and found 14 simply wanted to kill police.

“The assailants inspired by social and/or political reasons believed that attacking police officers was their way to ‘get justice’ for those who had been, in their view, unjustly killed by law enforcement,” said the report. In two horrific assassinations of police, the report said that “the assailants said they were influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Another reason for killing police, according to the FBI, was a “desire to remain free.”

The report said that in some 40 percent of the attacks on police, the assailants ran then turned and shot at oncoming police.

And in many of the shootings, drugs were involved.

The result has been a “chill wind” on law enforcement, and a somewhat understandable pull back by cops in dangerous situations, since even top officials, including former President Obama, have been critical.

“Nearly every police official interviewed agreed that for the first time, law enforcement not only felt that their national political leaders publicly stood against them, but also that the politicians’ words and actions signified that disrespect to law enforcement was acceptable in the aftermath of the Brown shooting,” said the FBI.

“Police officials across the country agreed that while the majority of Americans still support law enforcement, this change in social mores allows assailants to become more emboldened to question, resist, and fight law enforcement,” it added.

Enter the media, and the FBI said that killers feel justified.

“Due to the coverage of the high-profile police incidents, it appears that immediately following the incidents, assailants were constantly exposed to a singular narrative by news organizations and social media of police misconduct and wrong-doing. In many cases, this singular narrative came from the subject’s friends and family, and witnesses to the incident who often knew the subject, long before law enforcement provided their findings to the public. Without law enforcement and elected officials providing an alternative narrative, assailants developed a distrust of law enforcement, and felt emboldened and justified in using violence against police,” said the agency report.

“Defiance appears to be the rule,” it concluded.

2017 Gallup Poll: Americans Trust in Police Officers at 50 Year High

A Gallup Poll shows respect for cops at a near all time high after 5 cops assassinated in Dallas and 3 cops assassinated in Baton Rouge.


by Justin McCarthy

Story Highlights

  • 76% say they have “a great deal” of respect for the police in their area
  • Respect for law enforcement up since 2015 among whites and nonwhites
  • Majorities in major party, age groups report having respect for police

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Three in four Americans (76%) say they have “a great deal” of respect for the police in their area, up 12 percentage points from last year.

Americans' Respect for Police in Their Areas, 1965-2016

In addition to the large majority of Americans expressing “a great deal” of respect for their local police, 17% say they have “some” respect while 7% say they have “hardly any.”

Gallup has asked this question nine times since 1965. The percentage who say they respect the police is significantly higher now than in any measurement taken since the 1990s and is just one point below the high of 77% recorded in 1967. Solid majorities of Americans have said they respect their local law enforcement in all polls conducted since 1965.

Worlds Value Survey and Pew Poll says less than 5% of Americans are Racist

The Worlds Value Survey and a Pew Poll shows America is among the least racist and most tolerant countries in the world. So we can definitely conclude safely that racism is not in Americas DNA as Obama has proclaimed.


THE WORLDS VALUE SURVEY: Two Swedish Economist looked at the Worlds Value Survey to conclude The United States of America is “among the most racially tolerant countries in the world”.

The survey asked respondents in more than 80 different countries to identify kinds of people they would not want as neighbors. “People of another race” was one option to chose. The Swedish Economist said “the more frequently that people in a given country say they don’t want neighbors from other races” the economists reasoned “the less racially tolerant you could call that society”.

As seen in the Globe Graph above, as indicated by dark blue, less that 5% of Americans said they would not want to live next door to someone of another race. You can also see that both north and south America scored rather well. India and Jordan are the least racially tolerant countries in the world with over 40% of their population answering they did not want to live next door to someone of another race. And almost all of Africa did not score very well according to the survey.

The fact that less than 5% of the Americans polled said they would not want to live next door to someone of another race proves that America and Americans are not near as racist as a lot of people say. You can see more information from the study here.

PEW POLL: The Poll asked 1503 Americans,,, “On balance, do you think having an increasing number of people of many different races, ethnic groups and nationalities in the United States makes this country a better place to live, a worse place to live, or doesn’t make much difference either way?”

As seen in the graph below, less that 5% of the Americans polled said having more people of more races and ethnicities would make the US a worse place to live. And 64% responded saying that more people of more races and ethnicities would actually make the US a better place to live.

This poll is another strong indicator that the United States of America is not all that racist but is actually a very racially tolerant country. So share this post with people when they go to ragging on America and falsely saying the USA is a racist country. You can see the poll here.

The number of Black People killed by Cops has decreased 70% in the last 40-50 years


Has the number of black people getting killed by cops declined? According to The Center of Juvenile and Criminal Justice (CJCJ) and The Centers for Disease Control (CDC),,, yes they have,, dramatically.

The CJCJ reports that a study done by the CDC found that “the rate of police killings of African Americans has fallen by 70 percent over the last 40-50 years”, specifically from 1968 to 2011, while the number of white people killed by cops has risen very slightly during that time period.

The study says “In the late 1960s, nearly 100 young black men under age 25 were killed by law enforcement every year. Even as the black youth and young adult population doubled over the last 40 years, police shootings of young black men fell to around 35 per year in the 2000s, a rate decline of 79 percent. While younger African Americans were the victims in 1 in 4 killings by police in the 1968-74 period and 1 in 7 in 1975-84, today, that proportion is 1 in 10. Similarly, police killings of African Americans 25 and older have declined by 61 percent since the late 1960s”

The study also found that “the racial group most likely to be killed by law enforcement is Native American”

Blacks are 160 times more likely to die at the hands of another black person than police

just-the-facts-600x330

According to criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson’s research of FBI reports from January 2009 to December 2012, 112 blacks died in both justified and unjustified police killings, while blacks killed 17,888 other blacks during this period. That’s an average of 28 blacks killed by cops each year and average of 4,472 blacks killed by other blacks each year. Literally, that means that blacks are 160 times more likely to die at the hands of another black person than police.

You can see that research here.
