    What's interesting is that Natives are killed at the same rate.

    Talk about underrepresented in the media.

    Do you have a non-fake news source?

    that study just looked at death certificates and judged # of deaths:deaths by police intervention

    not # of times being arrested: # of times being killed

    which is a lot more relevant

    Considering that blacks commit violent crime at higher rate than whites I would expect them to be killed by police at a higher rate. If the authors of the study controlled for violent crime rates, it seems like an important detail to mention in the the article.

    1. Known fake news site
    2. You said it, 3 times more likely to die by cop because they're 3 times more likely to have a negative interaction with a cop
    3. Something like 90% of murdered black people are murdered by other black people. Death by cop is a drop in a bucket.

    -> 6.5% of population commits 50% of the violent crime in entire country
    -> 'Black men more likely to be shot by police during arrests'
    -> Smh America so racist, can't even

    Not a surprise when roughly 6.25% of the population is responsible for roughly 38% of all violent crime.

    Edit: Check that, it's now roughly 41%.

    From the article

    In other words, it's worthless.

    It's not 50% (although it is a majority if you're just looking at murder/non-negligent manslaughter and robbery). Still WAY out of proportion though. The other 2 acts classified as violent crime by the FBI are aggravated assault and rape.

    I think the rate for Natives is a little worse even.

    93% of Black men who are murdered are killed by other Black men. Source: http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/bvvc.pdf#page=3

    Blacks commit 56% of all robberies, despite being only 12% of the population. Source: https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/tables/table-43

    Blacks commit 50% of all murders, despite being only 12% of the population. Source: https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/tables/table-43

    Despite making up less than 12% of the US population, Blacks commit 1 in every 3 rapes. Source: https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/tables/table-43

    Young Black men kill 14 times more often than young White men. Source: http://ideas.time.com/2013/08/22/viewpoint-dont-ignore-race-in-christopher-lanes-murder/#ixzz2ciWBxj00

    obviously the statistics are even worse if you look at the 6% black males only.
    Because most of those crimes are comitted by them.

    I wonder how many people of any color have been killed by police while they were not resisting arrest in any way. My guess is that the number is close to zero
