Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Cover-up: White Crimes Under Reported by Mainstream Media

8 White People Who Pointed Guns At Police Officers and Managed Not to Get Shot | Alternet

When a white guy is seen wandering around in public waving a gun, the police usually try to talk him down; he’s probably just having a bad day. Even if the white guy happens to be pointing his gun directly at an officer, his interaction with the police is unlikely to end in the exchange of gunfire. This is called white privilege.

Recent history suggests there’s a certain methodology for how police handle nearly identical gun-related incidents: white guys get arrested, while black guys get shot. Outraged? If not, you need to pay attention.

FBI: More White Offenders Kill Police Officers than Black Offenders | Alternet

Well, Mr. Bratton misrepresented picture, according to The Washington Post.  The FBI reports that an average of 114 officers die each year in what it breaks down as both accidents and a "felonious acts," or purposeful criminal acts against officers. Accidental acts include drowning, aircraft accidents, getting hit in the street while directing traffic and other non-criminal related acts while performing police duties. Felonious acts include hostage taking, responding to domestic disturbance calls, ambushes, and traffic pursuits.

The number of felonious deaths, which is included in that "hatred and the violence directed against our police officers that every year takes" statement Bratton made hasn't topped 100 since the 1980s. During a given year, non-accidental deaths of police officers range between 38 to 58 percent of deaths each year. The highest number of felonious deaths of police was 72 in 2011. Law enforcement fatalities have been on the decline since the 1970s, in part because of bullet proof-resistent vests, well-trained SWAT teams and stun guns that allow distance between officers and dangerious offenders that otherwise would require hand-to hand combat.
