Dangerous distortions about police ..., 23 Dec 2014 [cached]
Dangerous distortions about police officers shooting African American men are being circulated across the country, according to John Lott Jr., founder and president of the Crime Prevention Research Center.
"One claim that particularly upsets me has been this claim the Sunday morning talk shows have repeated - [and] you see it in the New York Times, the L.A. Times and many other places," Lott said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
But Lott - author of "More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun-Control Laws," published by University of Chicago Press - noted that even that one percent isn't based on random figures.
"It's not randomly picked between different police departments. There are overwhelmingly police departments in heavily black areas," he said.
Lott also said it turns out that African Americans trust the police more than whites do.
"From 2008-2012, blacks were much more likely than any other racial group to report violent crimes to the police when they're committed against them," he said.

Recent work by professor John R. Lott Jr. at the University of Chicago has shown that allowing people to carry concealed weapons deters violent crime - without any apparent increase in accidental death or suicide.
Professor Lott found that when concealed-carry laws went into effect in a given county, murders fell by 8 percent, rapes by 5 percent and aggravated assaults by 7 percent. For each additional year concealed-carry gun laws have been in effect, the murder rate declines by 3 percent, robberies by more than 2 percent and rape by 1 percent.(5)
