  1. Tracking Police Shootings in the USA



    This is IMO the best source on police shootings for 2015 & 2016:
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...s-us-database#

    The reason why they discontinued tracking police involved killings for 2017 is because the government is now finally doing it:
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ustice-program
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ted-statistics

    However there are two blogs which continue to strive to do the same, though not, in my opinion, as comprehensively as the Guardian did.

    Still, they're an excellent resource, even if they aren't quite as user friendly as the Guardian:

    Bumping this because of everything that has happened recently related to this topic, but also because I've got another compilation of fatal police shootings to share:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/graph...hootings-2017/

    So far, LEO's have shot and killed 737 people in 2017.
    With mental illness playing a role in a quarter of the incidents, according to the Post.
    And just under half of the victims were white, while 1 in 5 were black.
    Just under a third of the people killed in police shootings were under age 30.
    More than half of the people shot and killed by police were armed with a gun, while 1 in 20 were unarmed.
    Just under a third of the people shot and killed by police had fled from officers.
    Almost all of the people shot and killed by police were men.
    Body-worn police cameras were known to be recording in 1 in 10 fatal police shootings.

    Could an argument be made that all police officers are sexist now too?

    WHO NEEDS RULES? NFL Players Arrested Every 7 Days On Average...
    The National Football League is in a golden age right now: It's been 23 days since one of its players has been arrested.
    The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to NFLarrest.com, which "provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges," the site says.
    Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.The NFL virtually embraces players who abuse women. Take this report in the Chicago Tribune: "In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns selected Caleb Brantley, who was accused of doing pretty much what Mixon did."The top team — at least in arrests — is, weirdly, the Minnesota Vikings, according to NFLarrest.com. Rounding out the Top 5: Denver, Cincinnati, Tennessee and Jacksonville.
    By year, 2006 was a doozy: 71 arrests of NFL players. 2013 had 62 arrests, while last year was the lowest in the data base at just 28 arrests. This year, 2017, the players are setting a torrid pace:
    • Assault and battery - 7
    • Drugs - 6
    • DUI - 5
    • Domestic violence - 5
    • Disorderly conduct - 4
    • Resisting arrest - 2
    • Guns - 1
    • License/traffic - 1
    • Other - 1
    That makes 32 arrests — and we're only in Week 3.
    The top crimes are:
    • DUI - 218
    • Drugs -100
    • Domestic violence - 98
    • Assault - 74
    • Disorderly conduct - 44
    The most arrests: Adam Jones, with 10. Jones has played for both Tennessee and Cincinnati, and he's been accused of poking a hotel worker in the eye, punching a woman, spitting in a woman's face at a nightclub, and was "charged with felony coercion in connection to strip club shooting that paralyzed a man" (take a look at all his arrests here).
    The top positions of those arrested:
    • Wide receiver - 140
    • Linebacker - 119
    • Cornerback - 116
    • Running back - 99
    • Defensive tackle - 80
    So, maybe — just maybe — NFL players aren't the best ones to be preaching to America about the perils of police brutality

    This is one of those things like USMCCharles said, some people will say this makes them more suited to preaching about brutality.

    So basically the whole black people are unfairly killed by the police is a lie?

    Pretty much. The issue isn't race as much as it is a socioeconomic issue. Police shootings are more frequent in high crime neighborhoods. The media is completely blowing it out of portion for ratings and clicks. There are certainly some bad police officers as there would be with any large group of humans but they have been portrayed as just racist murderers by the media. That tension has only exacerbated the situation. People like Kap and Bennett are only making the situation worse not better.

    The media M O is report something immediately to fit their agenda and research later, if at all. If the report ends up being wrong, their attitude is Oh well, we got our message out there, no one will notice our retraction, which most times, they don't even bother with. For example, hands up don't shoot never happened.

    100% true.

    What I find funny is that the MSM reports on these issues like we...people who are informed...don't know what's going on.

    In this day and age of information, people know more about the "narrative" nonsense than ever before. You figure that the approach would change since things aren't going "their" way. Nope. They double-down on the message and push the BS even more.

    IMO, if you are ignorant and drink the MSM kool-aid, it's a choice. The real information exists. You have to choose too want to know the truth. The Michael Bennett story is a perfect example. Hands up don't shoot is another. The cop in St. Louis who was just exonerated from murder charges...another. The Salt Lake City Cop recently...another.

    They keep lying/dividing and aren't held accountable for their actions.

    Sad!
