I don't need to defend my views to you or anyone.
What it appears to me is that your trivial questioning of the criteria I use to determine "norm" is a feeble attempt to soften and deflect the police brutality / sadistic murder that has taken place on an unarmed and subdued individual, which has led to protests and riots.
By the way, you did not answer my question in my last post to you of whether you condone occasional acts of police brutality?
No need to answer; I kind of know what your response will be.
my questioning to you is not trivial
as a "practicing economist" you must have an extensive knowledge of statistics
i am asking you how you determined that police brutality is the norm
as i understand it,"norm" is pretty strictly defined
i am wondering how often the "frequency" (also a strictly defined term) of these events are that you consider them to be"the norm"
