Are the police friend or foe? Are they necessary to preserve order, or are they unnecessarily intrusive? Do they have society’s best interest in mind, or are they racist and violent? Heather Mac Donald, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, analyzes the numbers behind these hot-topic questions.

“… The police are my friends!” a senior citizen blurted out in the middle of a police-community meeting I attended in the South Bronx.
I’ve heard variations on this theme dozens of times from the law-abiding residents of high-crime communities. These hard-working people don’t loathe the police-quite the opposite. They understand what so many seem to have forgotten or never understood: Police spend most of their time in minority communities-that is, mostly black communities-because that is where innocent people are most being hurt by violent street crime.
To put it plainly: Police go where the crime is.
In the 75 largest U.S. counties, about 60% of robbery and murder defendants are black, even though blacks comprise only 15% of the population in those counties.
In New York City, blacks make up 73% of all shooting victims, though they are 23% of the city’s population. In Chicago in 2016, there were 4,300 shooting victims--almost all black. Among the two dozen victims under the age of 12 was a three-year-old, shot on Father’s Day, who is now paralyzed for life, and a ten-year-old, shot on Labor Day, whose pancreas and spleen were ripped apart.
This is the reality that police commanders in urban areas face every day. And every day, they get calls from law-abiding citizens in high-crime neighborhoods, begging for assistance.
So are the police friend or foe? Are they engaging in an epidemic of deadly racist violence, as we so often hear?
In 2019, the police killed 235 blacks, most of them armed or dangerous, out of 1,004 police shooting victims overall. That 25% ratio is actually less than what the black crime rate would predict, since police shootings are a function of the rate at which officers encounter violent suspects.
What about the unarmed victims of fatal police shootings?
As of June 1, 2020, the Washington Post’s database of fatal police shootings in 2019 showed 9 unarmed black victims and 19 unarmed white victims of fatal police shootings. By comparison, about 7,500 blacks die of criminal homicide a year.
You know about George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, but what about Tony Timpa? In 2016, three Dallas police officers held the handcuffed Timpa, a white man, on the ground for 13 minutes with a knee to his back while he pleaded for help. His death was ruled a homicide, caused by the officers’ physical restraint and by cocaine.
The point here is not to justify police misconduct, but to rebut the claim that questionable tactics occur only-or even disproportionately-in the case of black suspects. Indeed, it is premature to conclude that the killing of George Floyd was a product of racial animus at all, as opposed to poor training and the officer’s unfit temperament.
Ideally, officers would take no one’s life in the course of their duties. But in light of the number of arrests that officers make each year-around 10 million-and the number of deadly weapons attacks on officers-27 a day-it is not clear that 1,000 civilian deaths, the vast majority occurring in the face of potentially deadly attack, show a law enforcement profession that is out of control.
Can police methods be improved? Of course, they can-with more hands-on tactical training, more practice in de-escalation, and better techniques to control stress. What won’t help is defunding police agencies. Officers in depleted departments who cannot get back-up when they face dangerous suspects will be even more stressed out and more at risk of making bad decisions. Response times will increase. Cash-starved agencies will train less, not more.

What is not well understood is that police training has become fear based in Northern America. Police are trained to be fearful and apprehensive, and its only reinforced by a militaristic culture within law enforcement. Police officers and civilians should not have to fear one another, and should be able to go about their lives as any normal person should. We need to de-militarize, not defund.

My favorite part was when they loved to talk about the percentage of black people in america except they conveniently forgot to factor that in when it would show black people are absolutely being killed disproportionately by police. Hmm it really makes you think, maybe PragerU loves to use statistics when it benefits them, but doesn't care about the statistics when it'd be detrimental to their authoritarian ideology. That can't be it though, can it?

Then billionaires (yep Georgie-boy Soros, I am talking to you) fund violent protests that burn cities for months at a time. And then to make matters worse somehow the media and leftists blame Republicans to confuse and conflate and continue their paths of destruction. It's time to take America back folks.

This video makes a few good points, but fails to mention the continued increase of the police state across the country. The ever increasing militarization of police, infringement of our rights. It ignores the growing presence of police in low crime areas. The fact, yes it's a fact, that most bad cops never face consequences for misconduct or criminal action(s). Simply stating we need to get rid of a few bad apples without presenting a plan, or the need for real accountability is gross disservice. Pandering and promoting statism.

Its sad that people cant comprehend that the police should not be reactionary. To end the cycle of crime in a community you need to invest in it. How would constantly policing a neighborhood end crime? It would just increase it, by arresting the parents and creating more poverty therefore more crime. If you truly cared about the innocent people being hurt by crime you would support cutting funding for the police force and using that money to invest into the community and social work programs, which would actually reduce crime.

BLM and the democrats have conditioned and polluted weak minded people into believing a narrative that is not true. If those weak minds had good parents and BOTH parents raising them under ONE roof, they would more likely not be brainwashed by the left. Thank democrat president LBJ for that one and his great society act which increased single parent households by 50%. Yet we celebrate poor life choices by putting "single moms" on some pedestal and ignoring that dad is gone thus making life tougher on the kids, themselves and society. Throw in NAFTA and the endless list of poor policy and the dems have such a track record.

If you go into the famous Harvard study on racial differences and police use of force, you find that not only is there no discrimination in police shootings, on any level (which many people now know, because of a few popularized statistics - the 3x more likely to shoot a black suspect is only true before you account for confounding variables, which is a rudimentary step, in scientific methodology), but it also reveals that: --> Black suspects are 23.5% LESS likely to be shot by the police, relative to whites --> Black suspects are 30.7% LESS likely to be shot with a pistol (as opposed to piston or tasers), relative to non-blacks --> Officers are 46.6% LESS likely to discharge their firearms, if the suspect is black (put differently, they are less quick shoot a black suspect), and 43.8% less likely to shoot a suspect if they are Hispanic --> Black officers are more likely to shoot an unarmed white suspect, relative to white cops (Study referenced bellow) This was the opposite of what the researchers expected to find (though to paint a more full picture, they did find that cops where more likely to use non-lethal force with minorities, which goes down in probability as as the force gets more lethal - it's still unclear why this might be. It could be discrimination, it could be a different factor). The crazy thing is, there is looting and riots going on all across America, resulting in shootings and deaths of people across different races, professions, and backgrounds, and ages (not to mention cold blooded assassination attempts of cops), stemming DIRECTLY from the *entirely false* proposition that cops are systematically hunting down and killing black people. Moreover, most of these violent acts are not even admonished by BLM, not to mention democratic politicians and many democrats (generally speaking, the violence, riots, and protests are regarded as par for the course, and encouraged, by liberals). We often commemorate criminals and rapists who are justifiably shot, while law abiding citizens (white, or anyone not pro-blm) are taught that they are the real problem in America, all the while vilifying cops who put themselves in harms way to keep society safe for the rest of us. And justifiably shot or not, make t-shirts with the names of unarmed black people who were killed, while completely ignoring their white counterparts, who experience - quantitatively and qualitatively - the exact same things. The entire philosophy of BLM is based on logical fallacies and leftist-myths - and it's fairly simple to prove, yet taboo to talk about in liberal circles. It's more of a movement based on power, control, and deep rooted anger, jealousy, and animosity towards other classes - rather than social justice (moreover, it uses social justice as a virtuous front). And this is all just the tip of the race-based fallacies, in the mainstream "America is systematically racist" narrative. Victimization and class guilt leads to genocide and destruction (mnpost.info/zone/ecu_ibCTbrN7onI/video&lc=UgyF9FPja8Q8jQLezlp4AaABAg). It's easy to talk about learning history, as not to repeat it, yet surprisingly often, overlooked. The solution is fixing culture that surrounds those in lower classes. This is done in part as an "inside job" by communities and individuals. It's also done by help from the outside, to make that possible. This looks like making communities safe for law abiding citizens and making it realistic for people to make good decisions, like starting a business, without fear of it being robbed. The data-driven solution is more police officers, in minority neighborhoods, not less. Sound preposterous? Oh yeah, 80% of black people want as many, or more cops, in their communities. And that makes perfect sense, when you can see the bigger picture. Study: scholar.harvard.edu/fryer/publications/empirical-analysis-racial-differences-police-use-force

@Cheese Rainbows it's Heather MacDonald's argument on the clip title. For her views on police reform strategies, start with a Google search - "Heather MacDonald police". This is a complicated topic that doesn't get boiled down meaningfully into a five minute clip. You didn't ask me, but I would say the quickest solution we can all do right now is to always adhere to doing the right thing, doing good to our neighbors, and staying out of trouble. If you encounter the police, COMPLY. If they're wrong, you have a shot at a lawsuit with a huge payout to you. But the time of arrest is NOT the time to resist and escalate. I'm not white but I've encountered the police. You win by killing them with kindness and professionalism, you lose so fast if you are indignant.

Reminder, this woman has supported the white supremacist theory of the great replacement, has called the COVID virus nothing but a flu and thinks that there should be no police reform despite the obvious flaws with how much money is sunk into a system that has proven to be unable to handle more than half of the cases they are called for (such as mental health cases, domestic abuse cases, etc.) In her dishonesty, she is arguing against the studies and data that prove her wrong.

@JT Just actually educate yourself on the facts, honestly. This is more on the topic of racial inequality, but it includes studies that support the points I made that this would effect mainly black communities. docs.google.com/document/d/1OIVHtml45EcMSi3suI5Zn1ymef5Y-8hnHbeY6kxp-ec/edit

@JT Do you know what the "google doc" consists of? I said it. It's the GATHERED STUDIES AND PUBLISHED RESEARCH OF EXPERTS. Your framing of the whole case is so dishonest and not to mention that you're so monumentally wrong on your assumptions, that you actively ignore that I already mentioned this was a doc of gathered studies. If you have something against streamers, who go out of their way to make searching studies easier, then you can take your time to check the different ways, like using Google Scholar, and educate yourself on the topics you're claiming I'm wrong about, to see the published research and how hard it disagrees with you. "Crime rates" have seen a bump due to protesters, sometimes without doing anything, being jailed. And yes, there are actual rioters that do deserve to be jailed due to destruction of property, assault, etc. If you actually knew what the reality is however, you'd know that crime rates have been steadily falling for many many years, due to the safety nets and help that communities get, which as we talked about, involve investing in a community and NOT OVERPOLICING IT. You can literally examine what was most effective and many experts already have. I'm sorry to disappoint but you got my political alignment wrong, my place of living wrong and you got all the facts wrong. Congratulations for being so wrong in one comment, I guess?

Enjoy continuing to fight the good fight. Meanwhile the rest of us colored people will distance ourselves from criminality and radicalism. Internet streamers and their google docs replace graduate degrees and published research nowadays. Your scientists have proven that policing is not the answer. Meanwhile crime rates have skyrocketed with cops being hamstrung. This idea is precisely from the privileged liberal, often white, who doesn't live in these communities that suffer from high criminal activity.

@JT Twitch streamers? I suggested checking out a video that legitimately debunked her points. That same "twitch" (youtube) streamer relies on an entire document he has built over the years of studies and citations that she did not share when required, like when she claimed what would be best for the communities she outright went for the thing scientists say should never be done and that's overpolicing/more police. She is actively arguing against the scientific consensus on a matter that would most likely impact black people due to the recorded manners in which they have been held down and pushed into isolated communities all the way until 1950/1960 which still has impact on today. The language of racism has learned to be more subtle over the years. The other commenter has his opinions, but I very well know her rhetoric and where it stems from, seen her talks along with the one you suggested, and I know very well that you're just blissfully ignorant of the real implications of the things she has been saying. She is, in fact, a racist, and she hides behind a veil of her points being supported by facts, when they are not, like so many other right leaning speakers.

Funny how when Tony Timpa was killed by police, it was immediately marked as a homocide and nobody had to lift a finger to bring those cops to justice, yet in George Floyd’s case the officers roamed free for almost a week. Not to mention charges against Tony’s killers were dropped. Almost like the scenario completely changed because of skin color. 🤔
BobbyBaconHat 28 өдрийн өмнө
This isn't true at all. A simple google search of Tony's names brings up various news articles that prove you wrong. It was a YEAR later (and after a news investigation) that they even had any charges and some there were never charged at all. It wasn't unil 3 years later that any body cam footage was forced to be public and clearly showed the cops in the wrong. Floyd's case was brought to public attention much faster and the cops actually charged while Tony's case was kept hidden for years and the officers still not all brought to justice. I agree the scenario does seem to change based on skin color. Look that the Dallas morning news article from Jul 30, 2019.

Okay? Crime is the problem, now ask the more important question: why is crime a problem for americans, why is it more prevalent in certain areas, and how do we solve it? Because its obvious increased police funding isn't solving the issue and police aren't the best tool to fix this problem. So how about we adjust the funding going to the police and invest in better ways to solve crime....

@SpeedyC362 its not society's responsibility to do a lot of things, but we agree to do these things because it makes society better- helping people commit less crimes would make society better off.
SpeedyC362 Сарын өмнө
the responsibility to reduce crime is on the people that do it, not on those that enforce it. the people that do it, do it because they dont have money. they dont have money because they keep popping out babies they cant afford b/c their shitty culture glamorizes doing it and getting that phat welfare check for each baby.

It's pretty self defeating for Heather to believe in having no police reform, only to later cite the Tony Timpa case (which she called a homicide) in response to Floyd's death, where the charges in the formers case against the police were dismissed. I suppose she's completely in favor of no one holding police accountable when they cross the line so blatantly.

It warms my heart PragerU is abandoning even the minimum pretense of credibility by having hacks like this present their videos. Here's a hot and spicy one for you lemmings: Tony Timpa, the poor white man who got killed by police? The homicide charges against the officers were dismissed. Lmao, even in the non-racist example Police still aren't accountable for their actions. Not surprising from someone who is against Police Reform.

@Schmerz dj BLM doesn't really have a leader. They have some people that are organizing and act as figure heads but there are no concrete leaders that are leading everybody in the group. BLM is pretty decentralized, which is why there is such a diverse course of action, meaning that you see some people riot, some people protest peacefully, some people raise awareness on social media, etc. Also, may I ask if you've ever even read Marx? Marxism is a collection of economic theories that can be applied in various different ways. It's not inherently bad. I don't see why the fact that some BLM supporters are marxists is relevant to the cause, because one of the popular requests from BLM supporters is defunding the police, which has nothing to do with marxism or terrorism. Some ALM people are fascists or white supremacists. I don't stereotype. Can you learn what communism and such are before spouting them out as buzzwords to insult anything you don't like? It doesn't you look very smart. Antifa (antifascists) are not all communists. Antifa, historically, has been a left-wing ideology, because fascists are right wing, so it makes sense. However you can technically be anti-fascist whether you are a republican, democrat, libertarian, socialist, communist, or whatever. Antifa is not a group, it's a political movement and ideological term you can apply to anyone. There's no group membership or anything, but groups can form and call themselves antifa and use whatever method they think is best to combat fascism, which sometimes includes violence. www.politifact.com/article/2020/aug/28/ask-politifact-does-black-lives-matter-aim-destroy/ I don't know what they actually think about the nuclear family structure, they never state whether they want to get rid of it or not, just pointing out the cons of it and embracing a more collectivist culture for the future. My guy... some 17 year old shot like 3 protesters... there are white supremacists in my neighborhood going around pepper spraying peaceful protestors. Not too long ago the police were blinding people with rubber bullets and teargassing people. Stop acting like you are a victim, holy shit, you people have the biggest victim complexes I've ever seen. Boohoo, some people showed up to some people's houses. I refuse to further waste my time talking to an idiot like you because all I do is respond to your points and you bring up another topic. First you say Floyd died due to fentanyl and I proved you wrong, next you say systematic racism is not real and I give stats and you give 0 rebuttals, I'm assuming you're just another boring old boomer who takes political facebook memes as gospel.

U do realise that liberals are running away from blm and the dems in huge numbers over this..... and i know not all blm supporters are marxists, but the organisers are, the people raising money for them (1000 currents) are marxists and the person who runs it is a convicted terrorist who got 50 years for killing cops and clinton pardoned her on his way out, plus you have antifa who are COMMUNISTS!... they are pulling in ignorant people who don't know what these people are about and opportunist criminals to do their dirty work. Just go read blms website, wtf does destroying the nuclear family have to do with black lives? This has been planned for ages and they are using floyd as the excuse. Blm only pop up at election time.... why do u think blm are doxing and showing up at trump supporters houses? THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BLACK LIVES! They are trying to influence or overthrow the gov... they are calling for revolution and theres video of them saying they want to replace the gov with a communist government... you either have your head in the sand or your lying....

​@Schmerz dj Sorry for long comment. I will try to address all your points but if you're interested on the topic, I'm by no means an expert, so I'd recommend looking at a couple studies or some MNpost videos on it and try to be open-minded as possible. The argument that it is class issues, not race, might seem the most common-sense argument to make, as there's no denying that poor whites exist as well. But the point of systematic racism is that these things are tied to one another, and intersect. One's race does have an effect on class status, which is why there are so many black people in poverty as opposed to white people. For example, black people are more than twice as likely to be poor than white people. (www.pewsocialtrends.org/2016/06/27/1-demographic-trends-and-economic-well-being/) and the average net worth of a white american household is, in 2013, $144,200, which is 13x the average black american household. In 1983, the gap was 8x not 13x, which shows that even as time passes, the wealth gap is growing even larger. Some more statistics that are verifiable are they are 2x more likely to be unemployed, significantly less likely to be homeowners, 3.64x more likely overall to be arrested for marijuana and up to 10x more likely to be in some parts despite similar usage rates, a majority of the innocent defendants wrongly convicted of crimes but later exonerated, more likely to convicted in general for the same crimes as their white counterparts, less likely to go to college, etc. Not to mention shit like mass incarceration, the screwed up situation with prison labor and the war on drugs. Now these are basically, summed up, because of socioeconomic conditions coupled with the horrible historical events like slavery, Jim Crow laws--segregation, how the government would criminalize poverty by creating petty laws that those in the poorer class would engage in order to throw mass amounts of black people in jail, then creating prisons, in order to use a legal loophole to use black people for labor while incarcerated. These all have effects today. It is both class and race issues. It is the exploitation of the masses, regardless of your race, but it's incredibly clear that black people have been a unique target in the past and present. Poverty is no mindset. It is a set of gross conditions being placed on people and seeing how many can squirm their way out of it. That's why poor, middle, and rich people tend to die the same economic class they were born in. But this is just a statistical average. The reason why rich black people exist is because it's not impossible for black people to not be poor. Its just significantly more difficult. For white people, it is difficult too, just not on the same level. Now I have no idea why you keep defending the Floyd murder. I thought I made it clear that the fentanyl levels were not lethal and both autopsies already concluded in homicide. But whatever you wish to believe, sir. The point of calling it racism is that there is a trend of black people dying at the hands of the police, and there are major flaws within the policing system that must be fixed. Many police officers are rarely held accountable, and rarely turn in their own. Many of them have gotten away with murder. And everyone is suffering at the hands of it. The fact that the government has done so little to address systematic racism, dems, repubs, and every lawmaker and congress member, and all of a sudden are saying "We'll do better" right now after riots and protesting is another example of how fcked up the American gov is.
