No Race Differences in Dallas Police Use of Force, Study Finds

White Dallas police officers do not disproportionately use force against minorities, contrary to common public perceptions that they target people based on race, a study finds. “We now know that the differences that a lot of people think exist because of these horrific events that we see on TV, video footage, that’s not the norm,” said criminologist Alex Piquero of the University of Texas at Dallas.
