Careful man. a lot of people on here don't like facts or statistics
Liberals don’t like the truth dude. Come on, let them live in their fantasy world.
right? compared to the thousands of innocents and victims killed by criminals a year. not pulling people over will only increase crime
and the stats from POC communities?
In 2019 there were 8 unarmed black men killed by the cops. For arguments sake let's triple the figure to 24 . There were 2.6 Million African Americans arrested that year. So the chances of getting killed during an arrest is 0.00092% . We can go further. There are 700k cops in America and 20 Million black men. 8 unarmed AA kill by cops (2019) This works out to 0.0011% No. of AA killed by another AA in 2019 was 5500 ( aprox) . So the no. of AA getting killed by another AA person is 0.0275% . A black man is 24X more likely to be kill by another black man , than he is to be killed by the cops.
Well let's be real here. It's only a big issue when a white officer shoots a black guy
@Chthou95 yep. If a black officer has a deadly encounter with a black man, it will never make national news.
1 in 1,000 young black men are in danger of police violence... that’s a lot.https://www.pnas.org/content/116/34/16793
What about their own neighborhoods?
Being serious: majority of issues could be police texts or emails. Even tickets. Pull over dangerous drivers, sure. But there are problems with cop shootings on both sides during routine traffic stops.Second option: take guns from cops and drivers.
If you are a cop, how do you know with 100% confidence that a driver is unarmed?
I’m sure cops wish we had tougher gun laws.
There’s no difference. Cities make their money on traffic stops.
That’s not really the point. Traffic stops mainly slow speeders down, get impaired drivers off the road, etc. They also stop defective vehicles that create a serious hazard to the driver and to others, and so on. In a perfect world we wouldn’t need them, but if you haven’t been in the road lately, there are plenty out there who think they’re entitled to drive however they want with no concept they share the roads with others.
@OddBeMe. Very true. Traffic citations and court fines are huge money makers for cities. Why do cities do this shit? Because of huge deficits by wild overspending on social programs and city pension programs.
@purplepoppyThere are black cops. Another thing is some people have windows that are tinted too dark to see in the vehicle especially at night.
That was meant for someone else

So again... they shouldn’t pull people over for speeding. For both sides.
True. I’d say if it’s dangerous driving yes. But speeding should be an emailed ticket. Even fighting it in court should be an online thing. People can buy cars and houses without leaving their bed...
well first we'd have to get rid of traffic cop quotas or install a failsafe for trying to fight a speeding ticket. otherwise, a cop could easily give out as many tickets as they wanted
what about the thugs that kill thousands of people a day?
@The_Sal Oh wow I didn't know thugs were supposed to protect us and uphold the law as well.🙃
why don't you riot.. protest to lock them up instead of feeling bad for them and setting them free so less cops will die?
Not saying don’t do any pull overs. But seems like every black guy killed was for bullshit reason.
True, but people need to stop running from the law when they get pulled over, or going on high speed chases.
There’s a lack of trust and respect between blacks and cops. Until that’s fixed, just mail their tickets.
Or follow them home and then approach.
No, if they’re not a threat to others just mail them their tickets. Apparently we can’t trust cops dealing directly with black male drivers even for the most ridiculous traffics stops.
Yeah, and what if there is guns and dope in the trunk of the car?
@OddBeMe they were killed because they resisted arrest and become violent and belligerent. The time to fight a charge is when you’re in front of the judge
@Kingofkings1992 The guy was getting back into a car. Sorry, not a death sentence.
Folks, the last thing a white cop wants to do is to shoot a black. Even totally justified shootings will land the officer in hot water if the offender is the "wrong" color.
It seems like cops are more afraid of black males when they shouldn’t be.
A black make is 14 TIMES more likely to murder a police officer (of any color) than a white male.
A large percentage of black men are very, very, dangerous.
I don't buy it. Not at all.
Is this your source? Not a great idea...www.washingtonpost.com/.../
@OddBeMe. The media is so wildly biased that I don't take them at their word when they refuse to report anything that doesn't align with their agenda.Don't tell me you feel safer in an all black are than an all white area.
I feel uncomfortable in poor areas. White or black.
Well whatever. I am coming around to supporting less police interaction overall. But a lot of criminality happens in cars.No kidding, I once stopped a guy for running a red light who was on the way to kill his ex and her elderly mother. This guy was 70 years old, had a.380 Super, and admitted what he was going to do. So, I'm not sure where the line is.
I’m sure your cop instinct kicked in there. Great. But every black man shot by cops seems to be for meaningless shit like brake lights or going five over.
@OddBeMe A minor violation might be the pretext for the stop, but when you talk with the driver things can go downhill fast.
When I volunteered to help the disabled.
you don't volunteer.you hide in your basement like bunker Joe. praying no coloreds enter your neighborhood
Please don’t confuse our lives. Only old racist fucks use the word “coloreds”.
it's the only word you Democrat slave masters recognize when it comes to people with a skin tone dark them yours 🤷♂️
