Who’s Killing Who in the U.S. the REAL facts!

Remember when your parents told you to believe half of what you see and almost none of what you hear?

I think of that every time I see a Tweet or Facebook post from people I know never check out their information. These erroneous “posts” get traction mostly because they are received by friends and family who think you would never send them something that wasn’t true. Many have been bitten, including me, because we don’t take time to check it out. Yet it seems when it comes to political issues, especially, we never, ever, ever want to challenge loved ones. Well, it’s time to start!

This week a Tweet floated by asking the question, “What is it with white men in society? Why are so many killing American Muslims, women, blacks and children?” This from a person who has worked in the media and claims that they only speak the truth, but people like me on the Right are wacked!

Low IQ voters and those with the victim mentality eat posts like this up. But it’s all wrong. I didn’t go to any Right-wing sites or Left-wing sites. I went to those highly partisan sites known as the FBI (for crime stats) and the DOJ (for crime reports).

Let’s look at a few:

2012 DOJ – The percentages of black adults and white adults arrested for murder were similar, with 49.3 percent being black and 48.3 percent being white.

2012 Black juveniles accounted for 51.5 percent of all juveniles arrested for violent crimes. White juveniles accounted for 61.6 percent of all juveniles arrested for property crimes.

Doesn’t look like a wide margin to me!

AS I looked for the numbers I found a little known fact. The DOJ combines Hispanic and white in many statistics. Why? They really can’t get percentages

  1. There exists an alarming number of basically decent people that simply don’t allow facts interrupt regurgitating the unchecked ‘sound bytes’ of others. Is this laziness or ignorance? Just Saturday I was sent an article about a likely 2016 candidate, who is way down on my own list. I was asked to give my opinion. I know this person loves this Country so I gave a rather bland, but pragmatic comment (I thought) The reaction was explosive and not nice name calling. Turns out she can’t stand this man who is, in her words, from a family of rapist, murders, thieves and other egregious deeds…..I told her I was glad she wa spaying attention and asked for her fact source….turns out it is Malloy, self declared atheist & liberal with an on line broadcast that makes Savage sound like a mouse. If this is all you hear and others around you agree, I don’t suppose there is a cure……Which means those like us have to be doubly diligent in checking.
