“Black Lives Matters” Sucks At Math

&

Not that they care, mind you. They’re going to repeat their nonsense over and over until no one questions it and it gets accepted as fact. This is the process of the radical. But, as Deroy Murdock points out their numbers are flat out bogus.

On average, 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012, according to the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports. Using FBI and CDC statistics, Professor Johnson calculates that 112 black men, on average, suffered both justified and unjustified police-involved deaths annually during this period.

This equals 2.5 percent of these 4,472 yearly deaths. For every black man — criminal or innocent — killed by a cop, 40 black men were murdered by other black men. The, at most, 2.5 percent of the problem generates relentless rage. And, yet, it is rude-to-racist to mention 97.5 percent of the problem.

Maybe Black Lives Matters should focus on young black men killing young black men instead of making up numbers on police officers.

To be sure, there are some corrupt, crooked cops in America. But they are in the minority and in the present age highlighted regularly as if they are representative of all Americans. I’d rather be on the side of the police than on the side that fabricates its data.
