Quote:
Why ‘policing is racist’ is such a poisonous lie

The Democratic candidates have revived the anti-police rhetoric of the Obama years. Joe Biden’s criminal-justice plan promises that black parents will no longer have to fear when their children walk the streets — the threat allegedly coming from cops, not gangbangers...

A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences demolishes the Democratic narrative regarding race and police shootings. It turns out that white officers are no more likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot black civilians. It is a racial group’s rate of violent crime that determines police shootings, not the race of the officer. The more frequently officers encounter violent suspects from any given racial group, the greater the chance that members of that racial group will be shot by a police officer.


The author, Heather Mac Donald, has been writing and speaking on this for years and her findings can be succinctly summed as this - TNB (Typical Niqqer Behavior) explains why niggers get gunned down by the police.

No shit. That's literally what bias means. The officers have acquired bias (this article explains how: by encountering more violent suspects of that race) and then used it against innocents.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

No, you have it wrong. If most violent crimes were being committed by Asians, police would  be more likely to shoot Asians, not because they are biased against Asians, but because it's their job to deal with criminals.

There is an effect that creeps up on police after time, which is that, if most of the violent criminals they see are Asians, they start to think all Asians are dirtbags. It's easy to blame the police for being biased against Asians when this happens, but it's the fact that most of the violent criminals the police encountered were Asians that caused the bias to develop.

Not because they are biased against Asians though, but simply because violent criminals are most likely to be shot by police.
