I believe that every time a police shootings occurs it’s not always a racial thing but there is a lot of data that has been around that shows the results and that what everythings seems to be. In fact, Mary Ramirez editor in New York Times stated, “This conclusion was pulled from an extensive study wherein officers were not informed of the purpose of the study (race)—yet they paused time and again, taking significantly more time to fire their weapons if the test subject was white than black.” There is so much mountings social pressure that makes things drastically more difficult officer to make the right safety decision for our community and also for their own safety because any shot fired is wrong when someone losing their life is involved. Often, people think that of all police racist and that's only because racism implied bias among officers. Tom Jackman in The Washington Post, stated,”The standard thinking about police-involved shootings, and some scientific research, has been that black suspects are more likely to be shot than white suspects because of an implied racial bias among police officers. But now a new study has found exactly the opposite: even with white officers who do have racial biases.”
