If you listen to TV talking heads, the five cops killed in Dallas on July 7th by militant Micah Xavier Johnson happened because of a supposed epidemic of Americans who happen to be black killed by cops during black suspect versus cop interaction.

Subsequently, the pro-black racist movement, Black Lives Matter staged protests in cities across the USA in what they have dubbed the Weekend of Rage.

Hillary Clinton, the wife of former president Bill Clinton who conveniently manufactured her political career in the last days of his presidency and the current Democratic Party nominee for president, took to the airwaves and Twitter to blame some Americans — white Americans. As well, Hillary blamed cops.

"White Americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day ... I’m going to be talking to white people. I think we’re the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from our African-American fellow citizens.
I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American  families who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have ‘The Talk,’ about, you now, how to really protect themselves [from police], when they’re the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with police ... We’ve got to figure out what is happening when routine traffic stops, when routine arrests, escalate into killings … Clearly, there seems to be a terrible disconnect between many police departments and officers and the people they have sworn to protect" ~ Hillary Clinton, July 8, 2016.

Is Mrs. Clinton right? Are the propagandists of Black Lives Matter right?

For every year, the Criminal Justice Information Services Division of the FBI produces crime statistics from over 18,000 city, university/college, county, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies under the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. The UCR results in these yearly reports: Crime in the United States, National Incident-Based Reporting System, Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, and Hate Crime Statistics. The latest full year data exists for the year 2014.

In 2014, there were 1,165,383 violent crimes committed and 8,277,829 property crimes committed (Table 1). That totals to 9,443,212. Violent crimes include murder, non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, assaults, and violent arson. Property crimes include burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft.

In 2014, there were 8,730,665 arrests (Table 43A). For both known violent crimes and property crimes as well as a host of other crimes including forgery, counterfeiting, fraud, embezzlement, stolen goods dealing, vandalism, prostitution, illegal drugs possessions, gambling, drunkenness, disorderly conduct, driving under the influence and vagrancy.

In 2014, there were 444 justifiable homicides, that is, the killing of a felon by a law enforcement officer in the line of duty (Expanded Homicide Data Table 14).

Of the 8.7 million arrests in 2014, five thousandths of one percent ended up in justifiable homicide — a cop killing a suspect. That would be like taking one penny from a pile of 100 pennies, cutting that penny into one thousand parts and then taking five of those slivers.
Even if the number of those killed by cops doubled to 888 in 2014, that would still only be one one-hundredths of one percent.

The workers at Centers for Disease Control reported 2,626,418 deaths for 2014. For every 100,000 there were 823.7 deaths. So for all races, justifiable homicide came to 1.6 one-hundredths of one percent in 2014. The number is so small as to be meaningless in the context of deaths.

For 2016, through June, of the 509 killed by cops, here is the breakdown of race by percent:

  • WHITES, 46.8%
  • Blacks, 24.2%
  • Browns ("Hispanics"), 15.5%

Blacks and browns ("Hispanics") combined still do not exceed the killing of whites by cops, 39.7%.

Almost twice as many whites get killed by cops than blacks (1.93) yet blacks commit the most homicides. 

As an aside, the 2014 population estimate came in at 318,892,103 (July 2014). The population aged 15 and up came in at 257,027,035. For every person 15 and up in the USA in 2014, there were 29 arrests.
