While I'm always worried about cops, you're a thousand times more likely to be killed by a criminal than you are a cop.

However, if you want to toss around outrageous, scary statistics, more than half of all murders in the US are committed by African Americans despite African Americans only making up 13% of the total population. Does that mean you should run from every black person you see? No, that's ****ing nuts.

You all were alive in the 80's and 90's right?

Forget the 80s and 90s, let's think about the 60s and 70s >_>

Yep. I never saw so many kids brought up as they are now. The attitude is far more pervasive.

A American is a lot more likely to be killed by another citizen especially if your young and black. Its the highest cause of death among young black men and the most like actors is another young black man..

Most people have seen the number floating around social media that suggests that citizens are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist, but new data revisions suggest this number was dramatically underestimated.

The lack of accurate official records being kept in the important category of individuals killed by police was met with numerous efforts by citizens. One example, in particular, is Killed By Police - 2015. This site is used to more accurately track the number of people killed by cops yearly.

And what do you think guys? Are you feel yourself in safety while "innocent" cop who killed few black guys is still on duty?
What do you think about possibility of terrorist act and do you think that U.S. Citizen is 58 Times More Likely to be Killed by a Police Officer than a Terrorist?
Are you serious OP? This is about as misleading a thread as one can have.

People need to realize if you're going not going to obey or co-operate with an officer of the law, there's a chance you might get beat-up or get shot, whether you are a criminal or not. It's a no brainer. Keep your drama to a minimum when dealing with the police.

Not shot, but unnecessarily harassed would be more accurate. Does stop and frisk for zero cause ring a bell??

I no where said 1% of law abiding citizens shot shot by the police, simply that 99% will probably never get shot. You sound like the media right now, just trying to twist words.
