The War Against Men

I have no opinion about the guilt or innocence of the police officer in the Ferguson shooting.  I have not seen enough evidence to have even a remotely well-informed opinion.  (And you probably haven't seen enough evidence either).

But one issue that the Ferguson incident raises is that a troubling number of men are killed by police officers.  For every 21 black males shot by police, 1 white male is shot.  But did you know that for every 11 women that are killed by police, the police kill 415 men.  That is 1 woman for every 37 males.  Is this a case of institutionalized misandry?  I think the answer is obvious.      ThatT
