Are those items of particular interest, or are they cherry picked to elicit a particular conclusion?

Leaving out drunk driving and suicide by any means, which have little or no bearing on neighborhood safety, "White people accounted for 60% of U.S. residents but 46% of all persons arrested for rape, robbery, aggravated assault, and other assault, and 39% of all arrestees," according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Minority crime stats are cherry picked all the time. Also why should drunk driving and suicide be excluded particularly since it has become a national topic along with opioid overdose and addiction. There are significantly more deaths by suicide when compared to homicide. Also the CDC lists suicide as in its violent related injury/death statistics. If any one group is so eager to engage in didactic dialogue then surely that group should be open to self examination.

In plain English: bring up not only cherry-picked but irrelevant facts to win arguments.

For those who care about getting the right answer, that's incorrect--but thanks for playing.
