Who is Shooting Whom?

This article references the recent Harvard study of use of force against whites and blacks by police officers, but goes well beyond it.  It explores the demographics of attacks on law enforcement officers, and compares statistics for white officers and black officers interacting with white and black suspects.  I found the results surprising, and you may, as well.  Of course, studies of this nature cannot be accepted as face value, as they are based on reports are not, and never can be, precise.
