Reality: More Cops Are Killed Each Year Than African American’s Killed by Cops

For those who think there is an “epidemic” of blacks being killed by cops, it seems that it is really the other way around. Statistics show that more cops are killed every year than the number of blacks that are killed by cops.

This runs quite counter to the left-wing narrative, doesn’t it?

According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund 682 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty in the past five years in the United States. That averages out to over 136 dead law enforcement officers each year.

Conversely, on average, there were 96 black males who are killed by white police officers each year–and another 300 white males who are killed by police officers according to FBI statistics.

Then there’s this… There were 431 black killers of “whites” in 2014, compared to 193 “white” killers of blacks while blacks make up only 13% of the national population. There were approximately 6,000 black on black murders last year.

This is 100% opposite of what the media and the left (I know, I repeat myself) are trying to sell us, though. In the left’s narrative, America is awash in the murders of black men by whites and white cops. It seems that the truth and the facts don’t support their claim.
