5 Statistics You Need To Know About Cops Killing Blacks

Anti-police rhetoric has deadly consequences.

Latest shootings have caused an uproar among leftists because they fuel their narrative that racist white police officers are hunting down innocent black men. But the statistics – brought to light by the superb work of Heather Mac Donald – tell a different story.

1. Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015. According to data compiled by The Washington Post, 50 percent of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26 percent were black. The majority of these victims had a gun or "were armed or otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force," 
5. Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. This is according to FBI data, which also found that 40 percent of cop killers are black. According to Mac Donald, the police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person.
Despite the facts, the anti-police rhetoric of Black Lives Matter and their leftist sympathizers have resulted in what Mac Donald calls the "Ferguson Effect," as murders have spiked by 17 percent among the 50 biggest cities in the U.S. as a result of cops being more reluctant to police neighborhoods out of fear of being labeled as racists. Additionally, there have been over twice as many cops victimized by fatal shootings in the first three months of 2016.
Anti-police rhetoric has deadly consequences.

California: Two officers killed trying to solve family dispute, shooter at large
Two Palm Springs police officers trying to resolve a family dispute were shot to death Saturday when a man they had been speaking calmly with suddenly pulled out a gun and opened fire on them, the city’s police chief told reporters. A third officer was wounded. The shooter was not immediately apprehended.
“It was a simple family disturbance and he elected to open fire on a few of the guardians of the city,” police Chief Bryan Reyes, his voice breaking, told reporters. The chief, near tears, identified the slain officers as Jose ‘Gil’ Gilbert Vega and Lesley Zerebny. He did not disclose their ranks or other information and did not reveal the wounded officer’s name.
Reyes said the officers were standing near the front door speaking with the man, “trying to negotiate with the suspect to just comply,” when he suddenly shot them. He said the shooter was not apprehended and may still be in the house. He said SWAT officers had the residence surrounded.
Cops Demised:
Ms Zerebny, 27, had recently returned to the force from maternity leave and was the mother of a four-month-old daughter.
Mr Vega, a father of eight, was a 35-year veteran of the force who was due to retire in December.
