How about this study: Chicago. There’s an average of 1 death by Chicago police per 300,000 (2015–2016), which is the SAME as anywhere in the USA (1000 deaths out of 300+ million). Yet the violence and homicide rate in Chicago is 4x higher than the national average, and there’s already 700+ murders this year (8 by police). Inner city police are actually remarkably restrained when they are nearly 40% of violent crime arrests committed by African Americans but they’re making up 26% of all deaths by police.

I’ll crunch the numbers. You can comment and debunk.
I think the media is participating in a form of New Correctness — and over-correction from past injustices. I coined the term here:
