AP Releases Investigative Report on Police Tactics and HOO BOY It’s a Doozy

Before we look into this, we feel this requires to be stated: any death throughout authorities interaction is terrible enough. How the AP is framing this isn’t great.

They discovered more than 1000 deaths, so let’s begin there.

“More than a thousand deaths over a DECADE” … so no greater than a thousand and 9 hundred and ninety 9, however no less than a thousand over a duration of a years, in a nation built on 50 states with a population of over 331.9 million?

Water has actually eliminated more individuals.

Well, they attempted gearing up authorities with Nerf weapons and extreme language, however that didn’t show to be the deterrent everybody had actually hoped.

Hey, here’s a concept: let’s defund the cops some more. How’s that exercising for Baltimore, you dim bulbs?
