Here's another fact check for you Dablo Greenhead,

The police kill about 1,000 people every year and that number has stayed roughly the same for the past 5 years. It's not on the decline at all. You can’t just spout stuff off that you’ve heard on talk radio and assume it is true.

"Americans are more likely to be killed by police in certain parts of the country, with police in some large cities killing black men more often than the national murder rate. Black Oklahomans, for example, are seven times more likely to be killed by police than their counterparts in Georgia, the report found.

In addition to being 25 percent of the victims, black people are also three times as likely to be killed by police as white people, according to the report, "Mapping Police Violence," which was released Thursday."
