But Chappelle is rich and famous, while Crawford was just some black guy who didn't have the luck to be a birdwatcher filming the person who called 911 and lied about him.
Every person's mood and behavior varies drastically throughout the day, and cops are no exception.

There appears to be no evidence to support that black people are more likely to be shot per police encounter than anyone else. Of course, a statistic like that don't make it more acceptable when people are unjustly killed.

Black people are more likely to be killed by black people. Black criminals are more likely to be killed by black cops, and violent crime is more likely to be committed by black people. None of that is an excuse to treat people as anything other than as unique individuals; the most minority group one can belong to.
