There are huge racial disparities in how US police use force

Here are some quotes from the article.   There is much more information at the site.  Thanks.  Hugs

Black people are much more likely to be shot by police than their white peers.

An analysis of the available FBI data by Vox’s Dara Lind found that US police kill black people at disproportionate rates: Black people accounted for 31 percent of police killing victims in 2012, even though they made up just 13 percent of the US population. Although the data is incomplete because it’s based on voluntary reports from police agencies around the country, it highlights the vast disparities in how police use force.

The disparities appear to be even starker for unarmed suspects, according to an analysis of 2015 police killings by the Guardian. Racial minorities made up about 37.4 percent of the general population in the US and 46.6 percent of armed and unarmed victims, but they made up 62.7 percent of unarmed people killed by police.

These disparities in police use of force reflect more widespread racial inequities across the entire American criminal justice system. Black people are much more likely to be arrested for drugs, even though they’re not more likely to use or sell them. And black inmates make up a disproportionate amount of the prison population.

The article talks about crime rates which are frequently used to justify higher rates of police shooting black people.  They show how this doesn’t correlate.  Here is one quote.  Again the article has more information, please check it out.  Hugs

Another study, from 2015, by researcher Cody Ross found, “There is no relationship between county-level racial bias in police shootings and crime rates (even race-specific crime rates), meaning that the racial bias observed in police shootings in this data set is not explainable as a response to local-level crime rates.” That suggests that, again, other factors are involved in the disparities seen for these shootings.

Taxpayer funding for religious schools that teach only religion.

Filed under: Children, Criminal, Economics, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Tags: , , , , , — Scottie @ 14:12

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/04/05/ultra-orthodox-jewish-schools-in-nyc-keep-failing-and-things-just-got-worse/

This is stunning.  These schools receive … “hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding, in part through federal programs like Title 1 and Head Start.”   They leave kids unable to read, do math, speak english, basicly unable to function in anything but their ultra religious societies.  It is horrible.

A yeshiva graduate, Moster got serious about raising educational quality for Jewish kids when he went to a secular college and realized to his embarrassment that he was unfamiliar with all sorts of concepts that other students had no problem with. For instance, he’d never heard the word “molecule,” nor did he possess any concept of the word’s meaning. For a long time, he considered himself “too crippled to make it through.”

 

At the 39 [worst] yeshivas [in New York City], children ages 7 to 13 receive only an hour and a half of English and math instruction combined four days per week. Other secular subjects are not taught at all, and English instruction for boys stops at age 13, the letter states. (Most Hasidic Jews speak Yiddish at home, and nearly a third of students in Jewish schools in New York City speak limited English, according to the Department of Education.)

 

He describes how a physician he knows in Borough Park in Brooklyn, a heavily Hasidic neighborhood,

… often sees adult male patients who can barely communicate to her what ails them. “It’s not just that they’re like immigrants, barely able to speak the language,” she told me. “It’s also a lack of knowledge of basic physiology. They can barely name their own body parts.”
