There were 511 officers killed in felonious incidents and 540 offenders from 2004 to 2013, according to FBI reports. Among the total offenders, 52 percent were white, and 43 percent were black.

I got into an argument on internet regarding difference in news coverage of cop killings by white and black offenders and in my googling of facts stumbled upon that fact above. My inner racist :) knew that the number would be higher than the % of population but 43%... WOW
