I thought conservatives value obedience to the law and the lives of law enforcement. Clearly this is not the case when they find themselves on the other side of the "thin blue line".

Vigilantism against law enforcement seems to be a growing issue and doesn't help that individuals can be legally armed with more powerful weapons than the police departments have.

I really do wonder if there are statistics out there that show cop killings (IE: cops being killed) black vs white. Who are they more likely to kill vs who are they more likely to be killed by.

There probably are stats to be known somewhere. I would bet that a majority of cop vs. citizen killings and the other way around would show that it's more white on white simply due to the fact that whites still are statistically still a majority race in the US. That's just a guess tho.

If statistics show whites are either more likely or just as likely to commit crimes or kill a cop as blacks, then why the focus on black crime (asides from racism of course)?

Well, it is pure and simple racism though and is why racial profiling is the problem that it is. It's not a big surprise that things are the way they are. It's always easier for some to target "them" (whoever "them" are) as the primary problems. That's the challenge that law enforcement and society has....to do better.

Tim Wise will show on his Facebook page any time a white person commits a crime, and gets a light sentence, or isn't shot on site when they try to arrest them.
