Study: Police Officers are Hesitant to Shoot Black Suspects

It’s an interesting finding [1], but one that won’t be broadcast on national news stations because it doesn’t fit the liberal narrative that police officers are racist. Note the following paragraph, which is the opening paragraph of the article:

The conventional 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 implicit racial bias among police officers. But now a new study has found exactly the opposite: even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects.
