Who Gets Shot?

The latest issue of the Chicago Reporter is out, full of stuff about police violence and race.

According to this article, "Police officers were less likely to shoot an unarmed man, regardless of race, than the majority white and Latino civilians who were tested." However: "[Police] were quicker to decide not to shoot an unarmed white suspect than an unarmed black suspect and slower to decide to shoot an armed white suspect than an armed black suspect."
