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”

About Captain Howdy

"Since the 5 Dallas Police Officers and the 3 Baton Rouge Cops were assassinated I have been fighting the false Black Lives Matter Narrative and studying it's related issues. It will be my passion and goal for years to come to fight and stop the Black Lives Matter Movement Agenda and False Narrative. It simply is NOT TRUE that Black Lives DO NOT MATTER to a large portion of Americans, and it is also not true that cops are hunting black guys and it is not true that America is a racist White Supremacist country. And despite what the Anarchist say the good old USofA is not a "police state" because constitutional small government conservatives have up to this point some-what successfully resisted the BIGGER GOVERNMENT is BETTER GOVERNMENT of the "Progressive Left". If you insist on saying we live in a police state then I suggest you go to Iran or North Korea and go around talking about how Iran and North Korea are police states and see how that works out for you" - Captain Howdy
