When will someone show common sense and start an #ObeyingLawsMatter tag?
For all the attention #BlackLivesMatter gets, you’d never guess that, though blacks are 13% of the population, they comprise 52% of murder/manslaughter arrests!
(And 56% of all robbery arrests.)
Perusing the 2013 FBI report , a glaring factor and omissions stand out…
…though being 13% of the population, the only ‘arrest’ categories black Americans came close to in being proportionate were DUI’s, drunkenness, and liquor laws.
But violent crimes?
Blacks made up 31% of rape arrests; 34% of aggravated assault; 30% of burglary and motor vehicle thefts; 32% of ‘other’ assaults; 40% of weapons arrests.
(And don’t forget the 52% of murders/manslaughters, and 56% of robberies.)
Black Americans committed serious crimes at disproportionate rates…it’s no wonder they met stiff law enforcement tactics while being arrested for such crimes.
Talk about an ‘inconvenient truth’!
The only way the Liberal Media can handle that truth is to ignore relevant data.
And the glaring omissions?
It would appear that even the FBI is delivering ‘deceptive’ data. Did anyone who visited the 2013 FBI arrest link (above) notice the groups missing from statistics?
The ‘Total Arrests, Race’ categories left out 17% of the population – Hispanics. (Our guess is they were lumped in with Whites, which over-inflates ‘White’ numbers.)
Worse, illegal immigrants are a group you’d think should be of some interest…some estimate their numbers at 4-times the number of Asian- and Native-Americans…
…so why aren’t they shown as a separate category of concern? (Of course, ‘illegal immigrant’ isn’t a Race, but you’d certainly think there’d be some interest, right?)
At the moment, it’s your Justice Department, so…any thoughts…
