Most cops are good cops

The notion that “cops are massacring blacks has no connection to reality,” says Jonathan S. Tobin in the online Commentary magazine. He quotes a new Harvard University study by an African-American researcher which found that blacks are no more likely than whites to be shot in the course of an encounter with police. While “that doesn’t mean there are no rogue shooters wearing police uniforms,” Tobin writes, the assumption upon which Black Lives Matters is based is false.
