Response to MrScorpio (Reply #5)

6. Checked the linked document. Couldn't find fact cited.

It's a November 2014 report from the DOJ's Department of Justice Statistics, entitled "Household Poverty And Nonfatal Violent Victimization, 20082012."

The article cites that report when it says "It is a fact (at least for 2016 and 2015) that a black man was less likely to commit a violent crime of any kind than a police officer was to kill an unarmed person."

I was not able to find a reference to that statistic, either in the report's highlights, the press release, or a quick reading of the text. Also, there seems to be a problem with dates. The OP makes the assertion for 2016 and 2015, but the report covers 2008-2012.
