Nice try. In a proportional world, cops would kill woman at about the same rate as they kill men. They don’t. They’d kill the same number of people between 55 and 59 as people between 20 and 25. They don’t.

The proportion you need to check is the proportion of people with criminal convictions. Those are the people that tend to have serious encounters with cops.
