COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY DAVID LAMMY IN THE GUARDIAN

The racial bias in our justice system is creating a social time bomb

The article makes assumptions which are not necessarily warranted.

It is the commonest thing in poor journalism to say about some phenomenon: “Well, there is x times as much of this or that for a certain group, so clearly there is huge bias in the system giving us these results.’

And, of course, anyone who has studied some statistics knows that is simply inaccurate. An overwhelming preponderance of some outcome may just as well be signaling a problem, a problem having nothing to do with the justice system.

We have problems in crime and violence we have never honestly discussed.

Here are the official stats for just one American city, Chicago, and they are updated regularly and presented with graphs. These are straightforward stats on the occurrence of killing and wounded.

Bias has nothing to do with these stats which tell us clearly that the overwhelming number of violent crimes are black individuals killing and wounding black individuals.
