A policeman is more than 18 times more likely to be killed by a black man than a black man is killed by a policeman. And yet all the racist in this country, including the media would have you believe other wise. It is time to live in reality. The fact is the police are the true victims.

Facts don’t matter to liberals, feelings are facts to them.

We have hundreds of videos of police beating up non-violent protesters. These guys clearly didn't give a crap about how they appeared to the public.

For a multitude of reasons, the problem is the police.

The usual unsupported claim and thus worthless words of another Ill-Logical1 OP. The data I have says that it's the RW who are killing LEO:

"White supremacist and other far-right extremist groups have killed 51 police officers since 1990, according to a report published by the Anti-Defamation League last week. Left-wing extremist groups, including black nationalists, killed 11 during the same period."

You don't even know what liberal means, much less what one thinks.

That is pretty scary that officer would think people should be more upset about loss of property than loss of life. It shows that we have not accomplished much since Martin Luther King Jr. spoke about looting and that many were not doing so because they wanted the property but because they wanted to shock people who valued property over human lives.

And he is not lying about $200K a year... Think they will have any problem replacing any officers that leave?

Then eliminating police departments saves lives. No cops=no dead cops. It is a win-win.

It is too hurtful to live in reality.

If you think the liberal media lie now about this topic, just wait until the Biden-Harris administration takes over in a few months.

It would not astonish me if the woke Congress passes a law that makes it a hate crime to even mention this topic.

Facts are great when they are actually backed up be real evidence.

Can you source that claim? Not saying you made it up, but you do tend to just make **** up...

Did you know that American Soldiers are also much more likely to die than a citizen?

Hey, if you don't like the odds then don't sign up for military service or to being a policeman. It is a choice to accept higher rates of death. You don't have to sign up for anything and be a victim target if you don't choose beforehand to do it. On the opposite side, you are immediately a target if you were simply "born" Black. There is no choice there. You cannot choose to be another color.

You call that being fair?

Number of police officers kill in 2019 93. Number killed this year so far 81. There is absolutely NO reason a policeman should be killed.

The US shoots, kills and imprisons more people than other developed countries. Here's what the data says - CNN

Law Enforcement Facts - National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund

I would like a link please? The stats show that there are over 1000 people killed in this country every year by policemen. There are about 200 policemen killed while on duty, although only 135 last year. So the stats are that for every policeman killed, they kill five or more citizens. And the number of people killed by police may be a lot more as there is no central count. It is the ones that have been listed by police departments. So I do not know where you get your stats, but would like a link.

How many black men that kill police wear badges and claim to protect and serve the community?

I agree and there is no reasons why police should kill people in custody that are subdued and restrained yet they do....

Yes, let's look at facts. Let's start where you got this alleged "fact."

In 2019 the number of First-line supervisors of landscaping, lawn service, and groundskeeping workers killed at work was 142

Police officers don't even make the top 10...

One stat, no real context, no named sources, and questionable conclusions... yet everyone else needs to “try looking at the facts.”

(Anyone else catch the irony of yet another “logical” thread.)

As of end of July this year police killed 111 black people.

For the same period, 17 LEOs have been killed.

It's a gross understatement to say that your numbers are false.

IOW, S.O.P for this one. It must be part of some kind of illness that they keep lying despite how many times their lies get slapped down.

And hundreds of black men are killed each year, thanks for proving yourself wrong.
