Chokehold: Policing Black Men

Comments at Steve Sailer:

* Paul Butler, the Albert Brick Professor in Law at Georgetown University:

“One of the revelations of my book Chokehold: Policing Black Men is that unarmed black men are actually most likely to be shot by a Hispanic officer, and second most likely by an African American officer. White officers are actually least likely to shoot an unarmed black man. We have the data.

We don’t know exactly why that is. I should also point out that, because there are a lot more white police officers than there are black or Latino police officers, most black men who get shot are still shot by a white police officer. But if you look at the race of the shooter and the race of the victim, a lot of black men are safer around white officers.”

* Blacks will complain about being followed around a store by a security guard, being asked to show ID by a policeman, and, of course, the dreaded Stop, Question, & Frisk. These are policies that were developed to deal with the high level of black criminality. The anger of blacks should be focused at their own community rather than those who have to deal with the problems they create. I won’t hold my breath.
