    “However, it is a fact, more of those in the white race are killed every year by police than blacks.”

    On this issue the sheer numbers do not inform you properly. When you look at breakdowns of ethnicity in America, you see that African Americans are 13% of the population. Non-Hispanic whites are 61%. So when you break it down per 1 million of each race, African Americans are 3 times more likely to be killed by police. Otherwise you aren’t comparing equitable things.

    I’m not a proponent of defunding the police but we absolutely need reform. They can start by asking why the heck do they need all this paramilitary gear? Isn’t there better things we can spend our money on versus giving them “riot tanks” grenade launchers, etc. It’s insane how much paramilitary gear some of the police departments have
