A Harvard university Professor has urged that defunding the police would cause more loss of life, citing figures showing that there are “450 excess homicides per year” when police are not able to do their jobs proficiently.
“Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives,” professor Roland Fryer wrote in an email to the College Fix.
Fryer has recently authored a research paper titled “Policing the Police: The Impact of “Pattern-or-Practice Investigations on Crime,” noting that police are less present when ‘viral incidents’ occur, meaning crime, including homicides increase… a lot.
“Our estimates suggest that investigating police departments after viral incidents of police violence is responsible for approximately 450 excess homicides per year” the paper reads.
“This is 2x the loss of life in the line of duty for the US Military in a year, 12.6x the annual loss of life due to school shootings, and 3x the loss of life due to lynchings between 1882 and 1901 – the most gruesome years.” it also notes.
“If the price of policing increases, officers are rational to retreat,” the study concludes, adding “And, retreating disproportionately costs black lives.”
Fryer has slammed the media for an “absolute refusal to grapple with the data” and says that there has been an “insistence” among journalists that he should not publicize his findings.
Previously, Fryer published research concerning racial disparities in police shootings. His 2016 paper concluded that officers were more likely to shoot at white suspects than they were with black suspects, indicating little to no racial bias.
“In officer-involved shootings in these cities, officers were more likely to fire their weapons without having first been attacked when the suspects were white,” Fryer’s paper read.
“Black and white civilians involved in police shootings were equally likely to have been carrying a weapon. Both of these results undercut the idea that the police wield lethal force with racial bias,” Fryer also noted.
Rather than defunding police, Fryer argues that community policing should increase, reasoning that this way officers can make more accurate distinctions between people when they have more frequent, non-confrontational interactions with them.
The professor also suggests that investment should go toward “new technologies for police officers that allow them to do their jobs, safely, without lethal force against anyone.”
Whoopi Goldberg is an Idiot
She had to make it about race.
Whoopi Goldberg somehow managed to make the murder of a black man by 5 black police officers all about white people.

Houston Taco Joint Shooting Was Justified Self-Defense And D.A. Should NOT Have Sent Case to Grand Jury, Legal Expert Says
The shooting appears to be justified.
Fox News Digital on Thursday spoke with a Houston criminal defense attorney who said that the hero customer who shot and killed an armed robber at a local taco joint last week was completely justified and District Attorney Kim Ogg should not have sent the case to a grand jury.
An armed robbery suspect was shot dead by an armed customer in a Houston taqueria last week in a shooting that one criminal defense attorney in the area told Fox News Digital appears to have been justified under Texas law.
“A person is justified in using force against another person when and to the degree he or she reasonably believes force is immediately necessary to protect him against the other person’s use of force,” Houston criminal defense attorney Sean Buckley told Fox News Digital regarding Texas law and how it relates to a controversial shooting captured on video last weekend of an armed robber being shot dead by a customer in a Houston restaurant.
[…] Under Texas law, Buckley told Fox News Digital, the shooting appears to be justified and is “presumed to be reasonable in the case of an armed robbery.”
“Deadly force is permissible to prevent an armed robbery, which was still ongoing. I think what’s important to keep in mind is that just because this armed robber was heading out of the restaurant did not mean that the threat was over.”
Buckley said armed robbers in Houston will oftentimes shoot people indiscriminately and for no reason at all and that the threat was “still alive” since the aggravated robbery was still in progress as the robber walked out with the customers’ money.
[…] “The law of self-defense, as broad as it is in Texas, is only as good as the officials who apply it,” Buckley told Fox News Digital. “There’s no need for a grand jury here. These prosecutors could easily make a determination on their own.”
“This was clearly self-defense or otherwise a justifiable use of deadly force and they should make that decision and not pass the buck.”
Buckley says the decision to send the case to a grand jury, in his opinion, is an example of prosecutors “undervaluing” citizens’ rights to defend themselves.
“Particularly when you have a liberal progressive administration like the one in Harris County, you have people who are second guessing the legislature’s rules and applying them in the way that they see fit, according to their individual philosophies.”
Houston District Attorney Kim Ogg, whose campaign was financially backed by the network of progressive billionaire George Soros, has faced criticism for implementing what some believe are soft-on-crime policies.
This perfectly backs up my own lay analysis of the case.
Ogg knows grand juries can indict a ham sandwich and she knows Houston juries can find innocent men guilty but she refused to make the right decision and defend the victim’s right to self-defense because she is a Black Lives Matter supporter who is funded by George Soros.
Hero Customer Who Shot Armed Robber at Houston Taco Joint Ordered to Face Grand Jury by Soros-Funded D.A.
The Soros-funded prosecutor let the career criminal he put down out on bond.
The hero customer who shot and killed an armed robber at a Houston taco joint last week has been ordered to face a grand jury by District Attorney Kim Ogg, the Soros-funded prosecutor who appears to have let the career criminal he put down out on bond.
A grand jury will decide whether an armed taqueria customer, who shot and killed a robber last week in southwest Houston and is now being hailed a hero, will be criminally charged.
Investigators said the 46-year-old customer, who police have not identified because he’s not under arrest, turned himself in and is cooperating with detectives.
Fortunately, our hero hired an attorney to defend himself and exercised his right to remain silent.
His lawyer put out the following statement:
“My client, who wishes to remain anonymous, was dining with a friend at El Ranchito Taqueria and as it has been seen on video, a robbery suspect entered the restaurant, and pointed a weapon at my client and the other customers demanding money. In fear of his life and his friend’s life my client acted to protect everyone in the restaurant.
In Texas, a shooting is justified in self-defense, defense of others and in defense of property. The customer has met with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office and Investigators with HPD homicide. He fully intends to continue cooperating with the ongoing investigation.
When the investigation is complete, this case will be presented to a Grand Jury. We are confident that a Grand Jury will conclude that the shooting was justified under Texas Law. This event has been very traumatic, taking a human life is something he does not take lightly and will burden him for the rest of his life. For that reason, he wishes to remain anonymous. Due to the overwhelming coverage, we ask the media and the public to respect his privacy.”
The thug he shot was a career criminal who should have been locked up in prison, KTRK reports:
On Monday, the medical examiner identified 30-year-old Eric Eugene Washington as the robbery suspect who was killed.
Records show Washington had an extensive criminal history and was out on bond during the would-be robbery.
Records show that in 2015, Washington was convicted on a lesser charge of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 15 years in prison in connection to the shooting death of 62-year-old Hamid Waraich, a cell phone store owner. Houston police also charged two other men.
According to records, Washington was released on parole in 2021 and charged with assaulting his girlfriend in December 2022.
Waraich had a fiancée and three sons who reacted strongly when contacted by ABC13.
“If the guy who sopped Eric was around 10 years ago, maybe I’d still have my dad,” Aman Waraich, the son of the store clerk that was killed, said.
“Eric was an evil criminal that took joy in harassing and robbing innocent families. The individual at the taqueria is a true hero!” Sean Waraich, the victim’s other son, added. “He did the right thing in stopping the robber and in protecting the community from a dangerous perpetrator.”
Our hero never would have even been put in this position if Kim Ogg actually locked criminals up rather than kneel before them.
This is a clear-cut case of self-defense but you never know how a jury will rule in the Black Lives Matter era.
