Default Study: Cops of all races see blacks as more threatening but less likely to shoot them

According to law enforcement video /virtual reality situational combat engagement research from Washington State University funded by the Defense Department.



http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...28/cnr.04.html

Many findings from the study will be released by the end of the year. But some have already been published. The research is declaring that volunteers of all races often view African-American suspects as more threatening than white suspects. But that they may have subconsciously overcompensated because of that bias.

The surprise was that they were more restrained in shooting African-Americans than they were of whites.

Would you go around shooting black people if you knew that doing so would spark riots?
