Read that Black cops rarely shoot to kill, and the statistics regarding Black cops use of deadly force was significantly lower than white cops use of deadly force.

In Black neighborhoods want aren't there more Black cops?

"The data shows that between 2005 and 2012, white police officers killed a black person nearly twice a week, every week. Of the 400 accounts of “justifiable homicide” by police officers each year, 96 of them involved a white officer and a black person, proving that the shooting of 18-year-old Mike Brown was not an isolated incident, but rather a regular occurrence."
