Since police proponents want “Blue Lives” to be a thing, let’s treat police like a cultural demographic.
Police are probably about .03% of the population (1.1 million) but, on average (with incomplete data because no one is really tracking this) murder almost 1000 people per year.
Wouldn't this make police the most violent murderous group in our country per capita?
People ask “What about black on black crime?” When there’s 13 million black people in America and about 5k homicides attributed to black people. This means black people are less violent than police- even though police are less likely to be dealing with the same economic insecurity (most intracommunal violence in afam communities is directly linked to poverty). The stats say that police are almost three times as violent as black people and three likely to be murdered as well (.0003% for black people and .0001 for officers based on a population of about 13 million and homicide victims at a rate of about 5k per year and officers at 1.1 million and murders of officers in 2017 at 143).
What about “Blue on everyone else” crime?
If black culture is inherently flawed because of crime rates- what about BLUE culture?
