No folks are mad because they ARE shooting people in the back. Over much less threatening situations than this.

Why are cops sometimes engaging in shootouts when their lives are not in danger, and other times stay calm and make arrests with nobody getting hurt in much more intense situations?

What could possibly be the difference between some of these cases?

The bucket in between the muzzle and dad is definitely pistol caliber bulletproof, guaranteed to ricochet with the curve of it. And often the cab is laminated plexiglass, so decently impact resistant. After the first shot the officer would probably have to go on the defensive, can't tell if its 9mm, 40, or 45 from here, but I'm sure someone can

Edit: the weapon is in is left hand and drawn from his left holster, looks extra brickish, I'm guessing tazer not firearm

Do you understand basic math? White-Americans make up approximately 58% of America, while African-Americans make up 12%. There are approximately 5 times more Whites than Blacks.

If the police treated Whites and Blacks the same, the number of Whites shot by the police should be 5 times that of Blacks. Just look at the link you provided and do the math yourself. Do you see 5 times as many Whites getting shot?

Studies also have shown crimes occur at similar rates among racial groups but African Americans and Latino/Hispanic individuals are more likely to be arrested and charged, in addition to getting harsher sentences. Other studies also have suggested drug crime occurs at similar rates in high and low-income areas and among racial groups, however, the higher police presence in low-income or urban areas leads to more arrests for the groups living there. The stats are skewed and there's a lot of over/under-representation going on among certain groups.

Well it definitely would’ve helped to not have slavery a while ago and actually let the African American community prosper instead of Jim Crow laws and debt peonage, weird fucked experiments, red lining for hosing, drugs, obscure laws that would specifically target black people, lack of basic human rights, etc. That would explain a little bit of why crime is so disproportionate to this day.

But that’s all in the past. How to move forward from there? Honestly I don’t know. But I can say representation is seriously lacking.

u/TheHoff779 Aug 14 '22 edited Aug 14 '22

crimes occur at similar rates among racial groups but African Americans and Latino/Hispanic individuals are more likely to be arrested and charged

I would be very skeptical of that claim, especially in regards to homicide.

Let me put it to you this way; African-Americans make up roughly half of all homicide arrests in the USA, despite only being about 1/8th or ~13% of the population. There are approximately 15'000 homicides in the USA every year, so by those numbers 1/8th of the population commits 7'500 homicides.

A tangential factor worth keeping in mind is that in most forms of violent crime the victim is the same race as the perpetrator. It's something like 80% (roughly) of all cases.

So, if it where true that "crimes occur at similar rates among racial groups but African Americans and Latino/Hispanic individuals are more likely to be arrested and charged" in regards to homicides then we would expect to se some 60'000 homicides in the USA per year, of which a huge amount would be white-on-white.

In other words, for;

crimes occur at similar rates among racial groups but African Americans and Latino/Hispanic individuals are more likely to be arrested and charged

to be true, the police would have to be ignoring 45'000 mostly white-on-white murders every year, just to make African-Americans look bad in the crime statistics.

Do you see how insane this claim is?

2

u/stuffinstuff Aug 14 '22

Thank you for your response! This topic definitely becomes more complex as you separate out the various types of crime, so I was a bit general when it comes to trends. There are a lot of factors that can undermine crime statistics so valid skepticism is important.

One issue is obviously reporting, we only have so much data, so with unreported or unsolved murders we are already working off of smaller effective sample sizes and sampling bias can occur. Drug use and drug crime is pretty widely studied so there is a lot of research available showing similar use rates but disproportionate incarceration rates. A few key studies have highlighted disparities in conviction rates and sentencing between groups for cocaine/crack cocaine but you can find them for many other drugs as well, such as marijuana. Homicides are a bit trickier though. We don't have people just admitting to murder in surveys so can't easily account for average rates among demographics so much of the data is going off of convictions rather than something like the combination of drug use reporting and drug convictions. So for homicide data, factors influencing disparate conviction rates among groups are more likely to influence the results.

to be true, the police would have to be ignoring 45'000 mostly white-on-white murders every year, just to make African-Americans look bad in the crime statistics.

If conviction rates are influencing homicide statistics, I would look towards disparity stemming from law enforcement practices and the criminal justice system. As mentioned above, many studies suggest increased police presence in low-income and urban areas and racial profiling likely play a large role in disparities in drug convictions. To shift to homicides, some recent studies have begun to look into racial bias in stand your ground laws and have found Black individuals are more likely to be prosecuted and convicted of homicide/manslaughter in cases of self-defense, even more so if the assailant is white.

Law enforcement, DAs, and judges have a lot of influence over criminal charges and proceedings so biases and selective enforcement of laws/protections can widely influence trial outcomes. Prosecutors can overcharge to coerce plea deals, which many individuals who are relying on overworked public defenders get pressured into taking to minimize sentences for cases they would likely lose without better representation which is for many unaffordable. There have been many reports of innocent people spending time in jail due to these practices and just having a bad or overworked public defender. Implicit bias among LE, court officials, and the jury can also play large roles in trial outcomes. How crimes are classified, treated, and reported in different instances may not account for all the disparity, but it definitely contributes to the over/underrepresentation of different groups.

Do you see 5 times as many Whites getting shot by the cops compared to Blacks? Why are you trying to ignore reality?

17

u/skinofthedred Aug 13 '22

Well, the statistics state whites are killed by cops by a factor of 2 for the past 7 years consistently. (Thats double, 2:1 ratio)

It doesn't have to be a direct correlation to crime vs population. Just like 12% of the population committing 60% of the crime.

u/mifaceb921 Aug 13 '22

And the ratio of White-Americans to Blacks is what?

It doesn't have to be a direct correlation to crime vs population

Unless you believe some racial group is predisposed towards crime, then the shouldn't be a large difference. The reason you see this difference is because the justice system is biased against Blacks. For example, if the police stop more Black drivers than White drivers, then you will naturally end up with more African-Americans being arrested for contraband items, even when the probability of carrying contraband items is the same between races.

u/SCP-Agent-Arad Aug 13 '22 edited Aug 13 '22

No one is saying that black Americans are predisposed towards crimes. No one is saying they commit more crimes because they’re black. But they are committing more violent crimes. Just like white Americans commit more financial crimes.

If 10 black Americans rob a bank, vs 2 white Americans robbing a bank, it’s not due to race that 5x as many black Americans get arrested for bank robbery. It’s not like there’s a huge conspiracy to cover up white bank robberies.

u/Print_it_Mick Aug 13 '22

So you think Black people are predisposed to commit more violent crimes than White people. What kind of racist thinking is that? If the police and justice system are biased towards Blacks, then naturally, more Black people will be convicted. One dude stabs another, is that self-defense or assault? The actions of the police and the judges and the prosecutors, all play a role in that determination.

Looks more like “Guy uses his excavator to make sure his son doesn’t ride to jail alone”

Guy uses his excavator to get arrested with his son.

Why do these videos always cut off right when they're about to get interesting?

u/GI_Bill_Trap_Lord Aug 13 '22

They usually don’t. On that youtube channel they are usually full length

wow, black people get murdered by cops for way less.

u/kattko80- Aug 13 '22

Yup, that will make the situation better

u/DntShadowBanMeDaddy Aug 13 '22

This is the most hilarious shit I've seen all week. Mf pulled an excavator on the boys what!?

u/xXSpaceturdXx Aug 13 '22

Yeah that guy getting arrested never stood a chance. He was born with that crazy…

u/Delta5o1 Aug 13 '22

So I can add on excavator to the list of things cops won't fuck with.

u/boyatrest Aug 13 '22

This is always what I imagine when I fantasize about turning into a dragon.

u/nouse66 Aug 13 '22

Damn, I really wanted to see that car get smashed

u/noeljrG Aug 13 '22

I know it didn't work. If the excavator operator were black he would be a used to be operator.

u/NimboStratusSuck Aug 13 '22

That’s going to be an interesting one for him to explain to a judge.

Interesting how much patience and trigger control they have when the suspects are white.

Wow the cops are showing really good restraint here.

If the guy had been black they'd have shot him to death. You know the cop would have said he feared for his life.

Only on Reddit do you see making everything a race issue, especially in situations like this that have literally nothing to do with it.

Exactly yet your comment gets downvoted. This is unsettling to watch knowing blk ppl get shot for so much less. Yet ppl argue that white privilege doesn’t exist. It’s literally the diff between whether you live or don’t in many situations.

u/smoozer Aug 14 '22

Perhaps you should consider the fact that there exist plenty of black Americans who do dangerous things and do not get shot, and there are plenty of white Americans who do not do dangerous things and do get shot.

The racial bias of American police is represented in the statistical differences of things like their level of force used for similar situations. Statistical differences. There would be no need for statistics if every single black person doing anything was shot by cops, and no white people were.

And frankly it's unsettling to watch so many people struggle with this extremely basic concept.

Privilege is using heavy machinery against the police and not getting shot at.

u/riftastic76 Aug 14 '22

Im sick reading these comments. My best friend just did his job, everybody walked away unharmed, and handled it in the way that it should have. Meanwhile everybody has to find something negative about the situation. Seriously what the fuck. If he shot the person you would have come at him. When he didn’t shoot the person, you STILL come at him. It’s a lose lose for him apparently. Seriously, what was he suppose to do in that scenario? Instead of living in constant hypothetical situations, how about you all examine the situation itself for once. My god it’s pathetic. Downvote me into oblivion I don’t care.

Are excavators included in the second amendment right?

u/Captcha_Imagination Aug 13 '22

It's wild how much leeway some people get when others get popped for nothing.

u/Charming_History7423 Aug 13 '22

Why didn’t they shoot the man like we see in a lot of other such videos?

u/Charming_History7423 Aug 13 '22

Did I say I would? Most of the videos I watch here I see police shooting those who interfere. I was just wondering what is different here.

Has he had previous poor experiences with excavators? Because he looks like he's having flashbacks.

How was the operator not shot dead? I wonder why that statie didn't shoot. He put his partner’s life at risk.

All we needed was a good guy with a excavator.
