No, YOU need to stop misleading people that there’s some epidemic of anti-black police violence going on. There is not just one study showing that this alleged epidemic is nonsense.

Here are some relevant facts:

So, no, there is no epidemic of anti-black police violence. What there is is an epidemic of falsely claiming that there’s an epidemic of anti-black police violence. That second epidemic — the real epidemic — is directly responsible for the disruptive and racist #Blacklivesmatter movement, for polarizing people by race more than ever in America, for the divisive tone of our presidential campaign and for the cold-blooded murders of police officers in Dallas. Stop spreading lies. Your numbers may be misleading and fake, but the harm that you’re doing by disseminating them is very, very real.
