11. Apparently Tom Stiglich was the cartoonist...

It's sideways in the lower right corner.


He replied to a question about it in a news article.I
The cartoonist Tom Stiglich sent the following statement to 5 On Your Side's Sara Machi:

"Thanks for writing and for giving me the opportunity to respond. First and foremost, may George Floyd rest in peace. he did not deserve to die like that. I do not condone racism or police brutality of any kind. It's such a hostile environment we're living in right now, one that needs more law and order, not less. The rioting and looting was extremely disheartening. That cartoon was based solely on violent crime numbers here in the US. To ignore that would be doing a disservice to the reader.Best wishes, Tom"


"Based solely on violent crime numbers here in the US"... Pigpoop! Those are racist assumptions!

A quick search finds this on the FBI site...
White = 5,626,140
African American = 2,221,697

Here's info from OJDDP .gov site from 2018: (All ages)
White = 7,115,940
Black = 2,826,460

That sure looks like WHITES commit MORE violent crimes than BLACKS do.
