Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said during a recent broadcast that many protesters rallying around the Ferguson theme — the “Hands up, don’t shoot” attitude and gesture that suggest police unfairly target black victims — are basing their outrage on false views.
Rather, crime statistics show that blacks often bring the police presence onto themselves, he said, Mediaite reported.
There is no “plague of white cops acting violently against blacks,” Mr. O’Reilly said, citing statistics that show black-on-black crime is widespread. “Anyone thinking clearly can see that the homicide rate among blacks [is] way out of proposition. Thus the police intrusion into black precincts.”
