Actually, according to a recent harvard study, police are 20% *more* likely to shoot a white suspect than a black one. Now, they're 20% more likely to use other, nonlethal force on blacks, but which would you rather be, put in handcuffs, or shot?

Predictably, both sides are cherry picking the data, and most of them are wildly misrepresenting it, 20% more likely to shoot whites than blacks is not "no racial bias", and the data going both ways is not "anti-black police bias in the use of force"
