John Langley, the creator of the long-running FOX program, COPS...says he's irked by some media critics who accuse the show of perpetuating stereotypes about "people of color" by depicting a disproportionate percentage of minority suspects.

The Bible says “Live the life to which you were assigned by God.”

Sheesh, sorry if you are mad that you were born in any particular way, sorry if you are jealous of those that were born the way you wish you were, but there is nothing to be done about it, kapish?

I once saw a stat on this site that took my breath away.
If you took out black and hispanic crime verses only white
crime compared to only the white population. There was
virtually no crime in the country.

The only thing I notice about the perps on COPS is that they are all living in Florida.

It's impossible to fully disambiguate, but the implications of the data are interesting.

Watch the TV show “First 48” that tracks the first 48 hours of homicide investigations. There is a definite demographic trend.

The only time I notice any racial aspect of COPS is when a white cop chases down a black perp. On foot, I mean. It always surprises me.

genetic predisposition for violence that black people have

Do you have anything to back this up? Something that controls for culture?

I think their is very little "genetic" to it, and that it is 99.9% culture related.

I think I’ve watched one episode of First 48. It was filmed in Minneapolis.

One Somali on homeless white guy murder. One Somali on white guy looking for directions murder and one gang on gang murder.

Could you repost your point. I, and many others I assume, didn’t get what you were factoring out of and into your statistics.
