Currently a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be shot by a black male than a black male is to be shot by a cop. That policy will kick it up to about 30 to 1.
That makes no sense
It's an odds equation. in 2018 there were 686,665 full time law enforcement officers working in the United states. As of 2018 there were about 23 million black males living in the United States.

Lets just use your "killed" statistics instead of the "shot" statistics...

48 divided by 686,665 is 6.99
235 divided by 23 million is 1.02

A police officer is 7 times more likely to be killed by a black male than the other way around.


Are you certain Nancy didn't think the sign on the door said SALOON instead of Salon?

You are saying all 48 cops were killed by black males?
All your odds state is being in law enforcement is more dangerous then not being in law enforcement.

Most likely not. I was just using your numbers as an example of how I reached the numbers I originally quoted

The 18.5 times number was taken from FBI statistics of black males shooting police vs. police officers shooting black males. Lets put it another way. An unarmed black male has a better chance of being struck by lightening than he does being shot by a police officer. Conversely, a black male has a much better chance of being shot by anther black male than being struck by lightening.

The protests aren't about "black lives".

1 : 280,000 of being struck by lightning
By those odds Whites have a better chance to be killed by another white, or cop, or die of suicide, or die in a car accident.
Again your numbers are meaningless

https://www.statista.com/statistics/203 ... in-the-us/
Looking at the numbers there was 102 people struck by lighting in 2018 20 deaths and 82 injuries. And that is total not just blacks, so statistically that would average out to 6 blacks struck by lighting. 250 blacks were shot by the police, and blacks have twice the chance of being shot by police then whites.
