By now you’ve heard about the fatal police shooting of an unarmed man in Ferguson, Missouri, in August.
Or maybe you haven’t, as the stories of the families of Michael Brown have become a viral sensation.
These are among the most compelling and painful stories of this year’s national unrest, and they deserve our attention.
And the answer to the question of how to get our attention to the problems is simple: We need to be talking about them.
But to do that, we need to get to the bottom of the underlying racial and economic disparities in the policing of communities of color.
We need an economic analysis that takes a deeper look at the reasons for the disparities in policing and criminal justice, and that begins with examining how race is the most powerful predictor of police violence.
That’s because it’s also a source of power for police officers.
And that power comes from the fact that police officers are often seen as the first responders and the people who are supposed to protect us, the people we need in order to get things done, like stop violence and keep our communities safe.
And for a lot of Americans, the idea of an officer is viewed as a job that requires discipline, which can make it easier to get an officer to do his job, to be willing to use deadly force, to respond to threats, and to make arrests.
In many ways, that’s how police officers perceive themselves: as the person who’s going to make us safe, to make sure we’re all OK.
So if you’ve ever seen police officers on TV or read about them in a newspaper, you’ve seen an officer who’s often seen doing something that’s going wrong or who’s doing something wrong.
He’s a cop who’s seen the world as a dangerous place, a dangerous world that demands discipline, and so on.
In other words, police officers tend to see themselves as agents of order, and as agents who are trained to be vigilant and willing to put their lives on the line to protect the people in their community, whether they’re black, white, Hispanic, or whatever.
But as many of us know, this idea that police can be the best way to make our communities safer doesn’t always hold true.
The idea that they’re the people protecting us is often a lie Police officers are more likely to be killed by other people than by police, and their victims are far more likely than the officers killed by the other people they are tasked with protecting to be black, Hispanic or white.
And when it comes to white people, this gap is even more pronounced.
In a 2013 report by the National Institute of Justice, researchers at Northeastern University and Northwestern University, who focused on the death of an African-American male in New Orleans, found that white people were nearly three times more likely as black people to be fatally shot by police.
And according to a 2014 study by the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, black people were five times more than white people to have been fatally shot.
And while the researchers didn’t specifically look at police killings of unarmed black men, they also noted that the white victims were nearly twice as likely as their African-american counterparts to be shot and killed by police officers, as well as by civilians, as a result of their being in their homes.
These findings aren’t the first to find racial disparities in police violence, and it’s certainly not the last.
But they do provide a good starting point for a more comprehensive look at what we’re seeing.
And one of the most promising avenues for doing that is a more systematic study of police shootings.
And it’s been around for decades.
But in recent years, as this country has gotten more and more racially and ethnically diverse, the research has gotten a lot more attention.
There are plenty of studies that examine the effects of police on communities of colour, but there’s been a lot less work on policing and policing policy.
So a lot has been done in the field, but the literature is still very limited.
And so, in this paper, we’re looking at the literature on policing, and we’re also looking at policing policy, and looking at some of the issues that have been addressed in the research.
We’re going to try to fill that gap.
And we’re going go through what research has been doing on the issue, and what research is still out there.
And I think one of our challenges is that it’s really hard to do any kind of systematic study, because the data isn’t readily available.
And some of that research is very limited in scope, and the data that’s out there is also not easily available.
But what we do know is that when we look at studies that focus on policing in general, we find a lot that has been found before, and has been reported before.
The most recent research on police-community relations came from researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and one of their studies looked at the
