The Latest Research Shows There's Racial Bias In Deadly Policing Shootings
Black Americans are more than twice as likely as white Americans to be unarmed when they’re shot and killed by police officers, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Criminology & Public Policy. And the new study finds that racial bias is a likely contributing factor. While this point is a well-known issue of contention between police departments and many of the communities they work in, it has been very difficult to actually study due to a lack of data. To determine whether racial bias could account for the discrepancy, Justin Nix, lead study author and assistant professor at the Univ...
