Strictly News reviewed over twenty potential studies to find three reliable ones to answer one question:
Are police more likely to injure or shoot black people?
(All sources cited at end of article.)
Study #1: “The effect of suspect race on police officers’ decisions to draw their weapons” (April 2020)
Study #2: The Reverse Racism Effect. (May 2016)
Study #3: “An Empirical Analysis of Racial Differences in Police Use of Force” (January 2018)
What do you think about these studies and their results?
Let me know in the comments below. I read them all.
