No, it does matter.
When you use the term homicide it implies guilt. Not by pure grammar rules, but by legal usage.
When officer of the law is forced to take a life in defense of his or someone else's life, then there is no guilt. Or if there is, it belongs to person doing the action that forced the officer to react with the deadly force.

So did I. When you consider number of police officers and number of people under their jurisdiction its hardly a large number. Especially if you understand that over 600k people live in the area, but another half a million works in it, so number is over a million daily.
Also, they weren't involved in over a 100 homicides, they were involved in over a 100 shootings. Most of them, by far, were investigated and found to be clean shootings, where officers acted properly. Only very very few were found improper and cause for lawsuits.

Secondary to your point, even if Baltimore did have an issue with over-zealous and brutal cops, they apparently are pretty good at ousting it, at least that's how it looks by the statistics.

The problem with this is the FBI doesn't regulate the reporting of these numbers extremely well, so there may be more cases than the numbers portray, which makes that 6 million dollars in court payouts seem a pittance, and that 100 in four years suspiciously low. So it could be indicative that justice is served honestly and openly (the more likely case) or that police are actively covering each other like in other jurisdictions.

This is somewhat more of a moral argument, but I don't think "its just .00004 per capita" it a good benchmark. sure it looks low, but the phrase "improvements can always be made" applies here. Just a thought.

so cool to see someone that knows their shit and the manipulation of statistics. like when people cite the "huge" number of gun deaths of america. in reality, a majority of them are justified police shootings.

food for thought, carry on

The population of Baltimore metro area is 621,342 people.
100 homicides in 4 years means 25 homicides a year.
That is a rate of 0.004 per capita.
And the problem is not when police makes a mistake, because the job they do isn't easy or safe, problem is if they try to cover it up and avoid the consequences or if such things happen because of systematic problems.
Neither is the case with Baltimore PD, neither were victims predominantly of a certain race.

I believe you mean 0.00004 per capita or 4 for everyone 100.000.
