The Problem We are Trying to Fix does not Exist in the Form People Think

Tim McNabb

Some of you may know, but I am a security officer under contract to the Federal Government. I protect the people who work on and come to Federal property in and around St. Louis.

Last night, a guard doing the exact same job I do was murdered in a drive-by, and his colleague was hurt.

I fully support peaceful protests, but those of you who are justifying the lawlessness for reasons such as "well, kneeling during the national anthem didn't help" are making a terrible mistake.

First Heather McDonald has done some extensive research and wrote both articles and books pointing out that law enforcement engages with various demographic groups pretty much in proportion to their criminal activity. Doing my own research, I find this to be the case.

Therefore, we are trying to solve a problem that does not exist - systemic bias just isn't there in the data that I am seeing.

The result then is that we will NEVER "solve" this problem unless you want to stop fighting crime, because the problem we are trying to fix does not exist in the form people think it is.

Veterans are 1.4 times as likely to get hurt or killed by the cops, but nobody thinks that Vets are being singled out. It's probably because we are combative assholes.

From what I can tell, there is no statistical evidence that anyone is being picked on by cops that cannot be explained by criminal conduct.

Now, how to help communities break these cycles is a great place to focus our attention.

3 Dear Tim, all I can say is: bless you for the work you do! And thank you for clarifying what a lot of conservatives already know but seem never to articulate. I do greatly wish we all had the, er, stones to point out the main fact that the black community commits the lion's share of crime, and therefore is on the receiving end of the, shall we say, "negative efforts of the police."

But the black community seems never to admit this.

Friend Tim, keep on keepin' on!

4 Yep; good for Tim!  He's a brave and honest man.

I'm having yet another knock down drag out with an old schoolmate, a black woman who has now stated that any efforts at proving that case are futile and it's all racism, all the time. It's really sad. She's smart, but she simply won't move past her passion and denial. There is an unwillingness to deal with the real problems in the black community, and to blame white people. That's why those problems never go away.

9 I have a basically indistinct issue and really remember that I don't have even the remotest snippet of data about the fundamental concern what to do. I can not track down a response for help me.
