Black on Black Crime Bullshit Excuse

Hi, everyone, I am kind of steamed tonight. I am sick of people trying to excuse the shooting of unarmed people by the police when they have so many other options available because the police in question are either SCARED
or RACIST which means pretty much the same thing when it gets down to it.
Last night someone that I consider a friend said something that made me go the fuck off. He started on the old FOX NEWS racist rich white prick commentator privileged idiot comments about how most black people get killed by other black people. Well, that is true, but completely irrelevant and is only brought up by uninformed people who want to ACT like they know something about the subject because they heard that from a racism apologist like Ann Coulter. Well, here goes.
Yes, most black people get killed by other black people. Most white people are killed by other white people. Most Native Americans are killed by other Americans (at least in the last eighty years or so), and so on and so on. This guy actually called that an FBI statistic.
Here is the actual statistics for that exact subject IF YOU READ THE WHOLE STORY. Here are some numbers for you from the latest report I could find quickly online (2009):
"Of the 13,636 murder victims in 2009 for which supplemental data were received, ... Of the homicides for which the FBI received weapons data, most (71.8 percent) ... In 2009, 24.2 percent of victims were slain by family members; 53.8 percent were killed by someone they knew (acquaintance, neighbor, friend, boyfriend, etc.) ..."
So, SINCE WE ALL GET KILLED BY A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER IN OUR OWN COMMUNITY, the comment that, "Most black people are killed by other black people..." has no significance and means NOTHING and the only reason anyone who uses that tired rationalisation uses it is to try to make excuses for RACISM, IGNORANCE, and INCOMPETENCE on the part of the police. 
Let's take racism and race completely out of the picture (hard to do because it was a white cop and an unarmed black teenager). But we will do just that.
OK, in the United States, law enforcement has rules that they have to live by, also. One has to do with the words, "DUE FORCE NECESSARY". Which means, as a friend of mine told me once, "When someone steps on your foot, it isn't equal and just to cut off his head."  
When the police have a Sam Brown belt that has mace/pepper spray, handcuffs, a nightstick, and in their car they have a bean bag gun and a net gun to use and as this demonstrates, it is completely effective without deadly force. 
So, BACK TO THE ACTUAL conversation, NO ONE ANYWHERE, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU DID, needs to be shot to death for anything other than a last resort. And the following meme expresses what I think of the people who try to say that black people, who are being murdered by the police, are "trying to play the race card".  

I am not the only one reporting this. If you want the statistics of who the police shoot to death most, here, go to this site that has the FBI report statistics with links to the pages they got the information from. http://www.propublica.org/article/deadly-force-in-black-and-white
