You think cops should just ignore statistics like this? The black people who are perfectly law abiding citizens (who i have NO problem with at all) shouldnt be mad at cops, they should be mad at the black people who give the rest of them a bad name. And dont call me racist for shouting out statistics either.
This is just like the other arguement about the wine protesters. You're only hurting the winemakers, not the government. The winemakers will get mad at the reason they are hurting, not the INDIRECT reason they are hurting.
I'm not sure how you think profiling would help anyway. Just pull over every black man on the street and ask if they've killed someone?
My point about racist cops still stands.
