Black men and boys shot most often by Chicago police, report finds

What is their point??

After threatening to sue, the Chicago Tribune has obtained data from the city’s police department that tracks every time an officer has opened fire in the city over the past six years. The vast majority of those hit were black men or boys.

There were 435 police shootings from 2010 through 2015, in which officers killed 92 people and wounded 170 others. In all, officers fired 2,623 bullets.

If the majority of the crimes are being committed by the black population; would it not stand to reason that they are going to be shot more than the other races???  Hello!!!



In 2011, there were 140 convicted offenders for the 128 victims with an associated prosecution. There were more offenders than victims because 10.7% of homicides had two offenders and 10.0% had three or more offenders convicted. 87% of all offenders had a prior arrest history. Offenders were 88% male.

Offenders by Age:

Offenders by Race: 

The data on offenders also tells a troubling story: Young, Black males are overwhelmingly committing most of the murders. Based on the data on the victims, that means young, Black males are primarily killing other young, Black males.

Records show about four out of every five people shot were African-American males. It found that about half of the officers involved were African-American or Hispanic and most of them had years of experience and were not rookies.  Should this fact still be considered racism BY THE COPS???

It is not clear to  me if Fox is trying to stir a can of worms by stating the black community is being singled out unfairly or if they are just reporting facts.

The figures show that 71.3% of all crimes in The Windy City are committed by blacks. Would that stand to reason why the numbers between races are so disproportionate??? Hello again!!!

I think it is a disgrace that the government and the black community are not being more proactive in attempting to correct their problems through EDUCATION. Should it be bullets or books that eventually tell the tale in Chicago and the USA for the black community?

For that matter, all communities can use a lot of scrubbing.

I will take a book over a bullet any day.
