Deadly Force – Black vs White

Deadly Force – Black vs White

ProPublica continues to produce some amazing research and summaries. This article analyzes the civilian killings by police which demonstrates there is a greater risk  for young black males than whites when dealing with law enforcement. Between 2010 and 2012 the data shows that if you are black are you 21 times more likely to be killed by law enforcement.  Of course there is some threat to the police which would result in the use of deadly force.  But when compared to any other developed country in the world the USA has some staggering statistics that are not explained completely.
