      NOT even a bit surprising if you understand (believe?) that EVEN THOUGH POLICE ARE OVERWHELMINGLY PROFESSIONAL there is a real problem in some police forces (precisely why the Obama admin had so much success with consent decrees).

      Killings by Police Declined after Black Lives Matter Protests
      A study also found body-camera use and community policing increased in places with the most active movements

      “The study, posted in February as an online preprint item on the Social Science Research Network, is the first of its kind to measure a possible correlation between BLM and police homicide numbers. It found that municipalities where BLM protests have been held experienced as much as a 20 percent decrease in killings by police, resulting in an estimated 300 fewer deaths nationwide in 2014–2019. The occurrence of local protests increased the likelihood of police departments adopting body-worn cameras and community-policing initiatives, the study also found. Many cities with larger and more frequent BLM protests experienced greater declines in police homicides.”

      IF YOU SHINE A LIGHT ON A PERCEIVED PROBLEM AND THE LIGHT SEEMS TO CAUSE THE PROBLEM TO SHRINK . . does that mean there was a real problem, it wasn’t just perception?
