Coach Boynton typed a letter about this and posted it to Twitter. It's sad to think that he worries his son won't be safe when he leaves the house.
The fact of the matter is that a police officer killing a citizen is very, very, very rare. And when that happens, the majority of the time the citizen is white. US citizens are 30x more likely to be killed by another citizen than by police. And in some areas that number increases to over 350x.
About 1.1 African-Americans per 100k are killed by police each year. George Floyd’s death is rightly condemned as murder, but I think most agree that most of the 1.1/1k is police fighting criminals.
