"On the most extreme use of force – officer-involved shootings – we find no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account."

A cherry-picked sentence taken out of context.

I guess he expects that nobody will actually read it??

Probably because most of his links are to total BS ultra right-wing fascist propaganda that we'd all be better off ignoring.

Abstract

This paper explores racial differences in police use of force. On non-lethal uses of force, blacks and Hispanics are more than fifty percent more likely to experience some form of force in interactions with police. Adding controls that account for important context and civilian behavior reduces, but cannot fully explain, these disparities. On the most extreme use of force – officer-involved shootings – we find no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account. We argue that the patterns in the data are consistent with a model in which police officers are utility maximizers, a fraction of which have a preference for discrimination, who incur relatively high expected costs of officer-involved shootings.

It seems to me that intelligent Trump supporters have a disconnect between the logical and emotional sides of the brain. No amount of logic, facts, or evidence will change their points of view. It’s better to just not engage. I fail at that quite frequently, myself.

Altimeyer spent a career investigating the different ways that the authoritarians think, including the ability to compartmentalize conflicting ideas so as to accept them all.

"Authoritarianism entails an emphasis on three core values that are offered as a solution to the aroused sense of threat. Specifically, it values:

- The importance of security versus instability (often seen as the impact of foreigners and immigrants).

- Conformity to preserve traditions and the idealized past (a time perceived as being peaceful.

- The need for loyal obedience to strong leaders who will protect the group. It also rests on the security achieved by having the “right” group in leadership."


Sound familiar?
