2019 Data Shows 51% of Mass Shooters Were Black, Only 29% Were White

When gang-related shootings are included, white people are underrepresented.

Published

on

Data from Mass Shooting Tracker, a source widely used by the media, reveals that 51% of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29% were white, and 11% were Latino, contradicting the media narrative that white people are overrepresented in mass shootings.

Investigative journalist Daniel Greenfield gathered the crucial data which confirms that mass shootings are not a “white man’s” problem.

He points out that while blanket media attention was focused on the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, 60 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend while Baltimore just reached its 200th murder victim of the year.

Greenfield then quotes Rep. Ilhan Omar, CNN’s Don Lemon and Newsweek, who have all claimed that white people are the biggest mass shooter threat and have carried out more mass shootings than any other group.

But that doesn’t appear to be the case for 2019.

“Looking at the data from the Mass Shooting Tracker, widely utilized by the media, as of this writing, of the 72 mass shooters, perpetrators in shootings that killed or wounded 4 or more people, whose race is known, 21 were white, 37 were black, 8 were Latino, and 6 were members of other groups,” writes Greenfield

“51% of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29% were white, and 11% were Latino. Three mass shooters were Asian, two were American Indian and one was Arab.”

Many mass shootings in predominantly black areas that claimed black victims also remain unsolved, meaning the figures are if anything “vastly understated.”

The white population of the U.S. is around 61 per cent, African-Americans make up just shy of 13 per cent and Hispanics around 18 per cent.

Most mass shootings (where there are 4 or more victims) are gang-related shootings. By excising these shootings from the record, the media is able to pin the blame on white people.

Separate stats compiled by Statista of mass shootings between 1982 and August 2019 in the United States show that mass shootings by ethnicity and race are broadly in line with demographics, meaning white people are not overrepresented as mass shooters.

There are “no clear patterns between the socio-economic or cultural background of mass shooters,” according to Statista.

None of this matters of course because facts stopped being important years ago and everything is based on narrative and emotion.

Gallp Poll: 83% Say Mental Health To Blame For Mass Shootings

Published

Not buying the Democrat narrative

A new Gallup poll has found that 83% of voters in the US believe the blame for most mass shootings can be pinned on a “failure in our mental health system”.

That reasoning was the most popular choice among a list of potential factors voters feel are to blame “a great deal” or “a fair amount”.

The second highest factor was “the spread of extremist viewpoints on the internet,” with 79 percent agreeing it spurs mass shooters.

‘Easy access to guns’ was ranked third with 69 percent, just 4 percentage points above ‘drug use’.

A further 58 percent said that ‘inflammatory language from prominent politicians or political commentators’ was a factor.

When the factors were analyzed as being to blame ‘a great deal’ only, ‘failure of the mental health system to identify individuals who are a danger to others’ ranked top with 55%.

The findings come at a time when Democrats are blaming the President directly for shootings and pledging to enact strict gun control measures, including enforced government buybacks.

While these initiatives are “common sense” to advocates, if one takes the time to examine the data and evidence, it becomes abundantly clear that gun control in this form will do little to reduce gun violence.

No Democratic candidate has focused on the mental health aspect, which most Americans clearly think is the overriding issue.

Portland: “Cops Say It’s Legal” For Homeless to Defecate in Public

Shocked onlookers watch man pooping on sidewalk.

Published

on

A post featured on the r/Portland Reddit thread claimed that police said it was legal for the homeless to defecate in public after shocked onlookers saw a man with his butt in the air “depositing a 6-8″ turd onto the sidewalk.”

Yes, really.

Titled ‘Is it really legal to take a dump on the sidewalk?’ – the Reddit user explains in the post how he was on his way to lunch when he noticed a group of people pointing and staring in the same direction.

“There was a homeless person bent at the waist, pants down, ass in the air, depositing a 6-8″ turd onto the sidewalk,” he writes.

“One onlooker went across the street to tell 2 police officers, and she came back and said “The cops say it’s legal.” After my lunch, the turd was still there with shoe prints in it, tracking it down the sidewalk.”

The Reddit user expressed amazement that defecating in public was legal, asking, “Is there really no one the cops could have notified to clean it up?”

“9 inch and under = good to go,” joked one respondent.

Like San Francisco, Los Angeles and several other progressive utopias, Portland has increasing problems with homeless people acting aggressive and turning entire neighborhoods into waste dumps.

As we highlighted yesterday, a leftist council member recently tried to stop feces being cleaned off the streets of Seattle with a power washer, arguing that it was racist because it reminded him of hoses being used to disperse civil rights protesters.

As we document in the video below, Portland’s problems aren’t just restricted to public pooping. The whole city is basically a shithole for all manner of different ‘progressive’ reasons.

Epstein’s Cellmate Told There Will be a “Price to Pay” if He Talks

Begs to be transferred to another jail.

Published

on

Jeffrey Epstein’s former cellmate claims he was told there would be a “price to pay” if he talked about the sex trafficker’s alleged suicide and is begging to be transferred to another jail.

Ex-cop Nicholas Tartaglione shared a cell with Epstein during his first suicide attempt but the two were separated before Epstein hanged himself on August 10.

Now Tartaglione is requesting a transfer because he says prison guards have been threatening him and telling him to “stop talking.”

“The clear message Mr. Tartaglione has received is that if he conveys information about the facility or about [Epstein’s] recent suicide, there will be a price to pay,” reads a letter from Tartaglione’s lawyer Bruce Barket. “Whether or not the investigators into the suicide chose to interview Mr. Tartaglione about the attempted suicide to which he was witness or about how the facility is run and the conditions under which the inmates are forced to live, the correction officers know he has information potentially very damaging to the very people now charged with guarding him or their coworkers.”

Epstein’s suicide has now largely disappeared from the headlines, with many of the high profile clients he provided “services” for breathing a huge sigh of relief.

As we reported last week, Epstein’s injuries that led to his death are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation than by hanging.
