HIDTA: Phoenix, Arizona (Chandler)


HIDTA, or The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas Program provides both strong and broad training for law enforcement that is often staffed by former law enforcement (retired) and other professionals who provide invaluable and specialized training.  

In the most recent training semester in Phoenix, Arizona, (Chandler) I had the opportunity to meet some of the professionals and those who attended the training. 

It is impressive. 

The students, at the end of a two week training program, and within hours of catching flights home, were, nonetheless, eager and active participants in deception detection training, digging intensely into statements to go beyond the simple 'truth or deception' level and into content analysis. They brought valuable real life experiences to the training, and quickly established an encouraging atmosphere of commenting, question and answer.  Some new to statement analysis training, still generated insightful commenting, and learned how a formalized system supports both their initial law enforcement training (many with Reid) but also their own instincts developed from experience.  It is, in this sense, to put principle into talent and experience, to have a disciplined approach to accuracy.  

Intense, but sometimes humorous, the input was both edifying and valuable with natural talent for analysis rising to the surface. 

For example, I was referencing the 'Baby Ayla' case where I gave the father's quote as "Contrary to rumors floating around out there, I have been cooperating with Waterville police..." and had not finished writing out the statement on the white board before one young analyst called out, "check water!" 

I turned and asked, "Who said that?" impressed at the listening skill just demonstrated.  The young analyst was thrilled to have instinctively picked upon 'leakage' within a statement.  

This became a pattern as the training progressed.  

A detection deception expert, Joelle Sweeney, had shared an excellent sample with me, with permission to use it in the training.  Due to its depth, I saved it for the end of the training and although it was challenging, the class pushed forward, digging and digging at it, until both truth and deception were properly identified.  Beyond this, they explored the personality of the subject, a 17 year old female, involved in the drug world, and expressed the proper empathy for both analysis ("the expected") and service (caring law enforcement professions not only 'serve'; they protect).  

The conclusion was:

Deception detected;
Identification of the subject's experiences, childhood, parental relations, and finally, insight to garner enough a personality profile.  

HIDTA trainees, by necessity, need to recognize the language of addiction.  

The deceptive patterns of addicts is something crucial in identifying more than just deception.  This paves the way for the interview and interrogation that awaits the analyst and/or investigator. 

The class, in spite of fatigue, worked through the statements marvelously.  

The professionals who administrate the trainings spend two intense weeks with the students and the bonding is evident.  Sharing similar experiences, the support goes beyond the high level training, but extends to everything from emotional support to providing resources for further training and even letters of reference.  Career advice for budding professionals, alone, is invaluable.  

The attendees, after 2 weeks of constantly working together, established friendships and bonds that serve both personal and professional needs as they strongly identify with their work, as a calling more than just a profession.   

The Phoenix HIDTA training center is a welcoming, high-tech, comfortable training facility conducive to study and advancement.  

Below is a short clip from WhiteHouse.org.  Interested professionals are strongly encouraged to seek out the training.  

One of the most repeated themes is to prepare oneself for future career moves that are unexpected.  In meeting the professional men and women at the training, more than a few spoke of receiving training in areas not currently used in anticipation for the unknown future ahead of them.  

As one studies areas that are not currently within their own scope of work, the professional prepares for a future that is excitedly open to variables. 

As Bob Dylan said, "it is a perfect time for anything to happen."

These men and women are dedicated to the professionals they guide; visit the website here for Training Opportunities.  Take advantage of anything offered.  

Although we are involved in advanced training, we will continue with the general training of Statement Analysis.  Those who have gone through the course and live training  find themselves prepared for future possibilities, yet unknown.  The initial course is thorough, challenging, and comes with 12 months of e-support.  It also is a prerequisite for the live, on going  trainings that are held monthly.  


High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) Program

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program, created by Congress with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, provides assistance to Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies operating in areas determined to be critical drug-trafficking regions of the United States.
The purpose of the program is to reduce drug trafficking and production in the United States by:
  • Facilitating cooperation among Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to share information and implement coordinated enforcement activities;
  • Enhancing law enforcement intelligence sharing among Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies;
  • Providing reliable law enforcement intelligence to law enforcement agencies needed to design effective enforcement strategies and operations; and
  • Supporting coordinated law enforcement strategies which maximize use of available resources to reduce the supply of illegal drugs in designated areas and in the United States as a whole.
There are currently 28 HIDTA’s, which include approximately 17.6 percent of all counties in the United States and a little over 63.5 percent of the U.S. population.  HIDTA-designated counties are located in 48 states, as well as in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia. View a map of the HIDTAs here.
Each HIDTA assesses the drug trafficking threat in its defined area for the upcoming year, develops a strategy to address that threat, designs initiatives to implement the strategy, proposes funding needed to carry out the initiatives, and prepares an annual report describing its performance the previous year.  A central feature of the HIDTA program is the discretion granted to the Executive Boards to design and implement initiatives that confront drug trafficking threats in each HIDTA.  The program’s 59 Intelligence and Investigative Support Centers help HIDTA’s identify new targets and trends, develop threat assessments, de-conflict targets and events, and manage cases.

HIDTA Activities

The HIDTA program funds 737 initiatives throughout the country, including:
  • Enforcement initiatives comprising multi-agency investigative, interdiction, and  prosecution activities;
  • Intelligence and information-sharing initiatives;
  • Support for programs that provide assistance beyond the core enforcement and intelligence and information-sharing initiatives; and
  • Drug use prevention and drug treatment initiatives.

Dependent Words and Deception

Insight into Bill Clinton's meeting with Loretta Lynch?  

In statement analysis, a "dependent word" is one that communicates appropriately when another word or topic is associated with it.  

For example, the word "just" is a dependent word.  It will not appropriately communicate a thought unless there is an attendant thought within the speaker's mind.  

We sometimes see "statement analysis confessions" by this word alone. 

"The car costs $15,000."  This is a straight forward, reliable sentence.  Now note a single word change that introduces a new, and missing topic:

"The car costs just $15,000

The word "just" is a dependent word.  It only communicates effectively when the dependent word is associated with at least one other word.  Here, "just" is used to compare the cost with at least one other cost, within the subject's mind. 

Patrol knows this dependent word:  "only"

"I only had two drinks, officer" with the unnecessary dependent word "only" signaling that the subject is thinking of a number greater than two.  

Patrol:  "How many drinks have you had tonight, sir?"

Subject:  "Just two, officer."

The word "just" is a dependent word.  It must rely upon something else in order to be appropriately used in a sentence.  The subject is thinking, via comparison, of another number, greater than two.  

Deceptive people often use a dependent word, inappropriately and reveal truth inadvertently. 

Here is a question for you.  How many people are involved in this sentence"

"I have  a brother."

Answer:  Two.  We have the subject ("I") and we have a "brother", which is two.  The subject may have more, but that information would be outside this statement.  

Next, how many people are indicated in this sentence?  Note this sentence independently of the one above.  An example of this came up in a criminal investigation in which the subject was deceptive about the number of people involved:  

"I have another brother" 

How many people are found within this statement?
Answer:  3 or more. 

We have "I", the subject, as one.
We have the brother as two. 
Then, using the dependent word, "another" we know that this word only works in a sentence when it is associated with at least one other brother, giving us three, or more.  Here, we say "more" because the number found, within this sentence, is not limited to three.  

Dependent words can even give confessions. 

" I parked my car at the gas station.  A car pulled up next to mine, and a man got out..."

This sentence tells us that there are two cars in the sentence.  The car belonging to the subject, and the car belonging to the man who pulled up next to her car, and got out. 

The problem?

This is not what she wrote. The analysts had already picked up linguistic indicators of not only substance abuse dependence but had considered that there was a 3rd party who entered the statement; a drug dealer.  

"I parked my car at the gas station.  Another car pulled up next to mine, and a man got out..." 

In the statement, the analysts knew that there was yet a third car within the statement, and going deeply into the statement, discerned that this third car was that likely of a drug dealer.  This changed the dynamics of the "event" that was reported.  The word "another" is a dependent word, meaning it does not work unless there is a noun missing that must be applied.  

Dependent words reveal withheld information, especially in advanced techniques and can not only reveal specifically withheld or surpassed information, but can show attendant crimes; those not alleged, but committed alongside the original allegation.  

The Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed Friday, September 23, 2016,  that  Barack Obama used a private email address and pseudonym to communicate with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary R. Clinton and her own private email account as early as June 2012. 

Barak Obama told CBS News March 7, 2015 that he did not know about Clinton’s private email while she was his secretary of state from Jan. 21, 2009 to Feb. 1, 2013.
Q: Mr. President, when did you first learn that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. government for official business while she was secretary of state?
A:  Obama: The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.

The question is answered and it appears, on the surface, to be a straight forward lie.  

Let's look more deeply at the response. 


Q: Mr. President, when did you first learn that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. government for official business while she was secretary of state?
A:  Obama: The same time everyone learned it through news reports.
Here the wording is changed, and the dependent word, "else" is removed.  

A.  "The same time the public learned of it"  was also not said. Here is an even clearer way of answering the question.  

Remember:  the simplest answers are often the most reliable.  

A.  "I learned about it through media."  

This one would, psychologically, put the subject, himself, into the sentence with the pronoun "I", increasing the strength or commitment to the sentence. 

It is not what he said.

"The same time everybody else learned it through the news reports."

Although some may say that the President of the United States only learning this through the media without media first telling him strains credibility of which I reply:  this is statement analysis and we look for a reason for the opinion of deception.  For our reports, and for prosecution, we must be able to clearly articulate why we have concluded deception.  

The word "else" is a dependent word. It is unnecessarily added, meaning it violated the law of economy, took extra effort, leading us to know that it is very important to the subject.  Effort equals sensitivity.  The brain told the tongue to add this word to the sentence, and where to put it in the sentence, in less than a micro second in time.  

This rapid processing means:

The subject did not stop, pause and ask himself, "Should I answer with the word "else", or should I just say it without the word "else"?

Here the disruption of the editing process would have been severe, instead, we have a signal of proficiency within the answer.  This is a strong signal that the subject is well accomplished and life long in deception. 

Not only did the subject not use the pronoun "I", which would have placed himself within the answer, but we know his baseline is to use an overabundance of the pronoun "I" in most every speech given, from funeral speeches that were intended to be about someone other than himself, to any announcement in which success is claimed.  Some journalists have learned to literally count the number times he uses the pronouns "I", "me" and "my" in speeches, suggesting self-aggrandizement and narcissism.  

Note:  "else" is a dependent word that is not necessary to use here.  It is why we consider this 'coming close to an admission' of knowledge.  "Else" only works when it shows dependence upon a person who is being separated from "everybody" (that is, all) in his sentence. 

The question was, "When did you learn...?" in March of 2015.  

Analysis Conclusion:  Deception Indicated 

Most people are uncomfortable with a direct lie, and here we see that he removed 'self' from the sentence by avoiding using the pronoun "I", yet he still, unwittingly, identified himself, as one separate and distinct, unnecessarily, from "everyone else."

"Else" refers to himself, and although those who felt that it was not credible were correct, we seek to, within language, find the source of the deception.  This becomes vital in not only seeking justice, but in a case like this, gives insight into personality and experience in deception.  

Mothers of a 8 year olds who come home from school with a touch of trouble recognize this dependent word.  

Most people are afraid of lying to authority.  It is, therefore, concerning when one is bold enough to lie to a police officer.  

What about someone who lies to two or more police officers?  In early Casey Anthony analysis, she showed fearlessness in the event of lying to several police officers, telling them that she worked at a specific company in which she did not.  

They drove her to the company.  

Think about this car ride and why she allowed this to continue.  

She actually allowed them to do so, without interrupting them and saying, "No, don't bother.  I lied.  I don't work there." 

Time elapsed.  

She then got out of the car and walked to the building with them.  

She could have stopped this at any point and admitted the inevitable:  they will see that she does not work there. 

Why did she do it?

This was a very strong indicator of a sociopathic liar; one who lies so often that she lies even when there is no cause to lie.  She lies as she breathes and has become so successful in her lies, that her confidence told her "I'll think of something..." as time elapsed.

Most people would fear lying to a single police officer. 

What about lying to the FBI?  This is now to lie to a federal agent. 

Think of the confidence in one's own ability to deceive to be willing to lie, with the consequences well known, to a federal agent.  

Now think of one who has the confidence in his own abilities to lie to Congress, under oath to God. 

Lastly, think of one who has the utter blind confidence in his or her own ability to deceive and "put one over" (the element of contempt) to...

an audience of 300 million Americans.  

Liars hold the world in contempt.  

They believe the world at large is beneath them, and without the capabilities to discern their words and catch their lies.  

Where one quickly folds and admits lying to a teacher, or a mother, or someone in authority, we should take note of what a tender conscience looks like.  

When another has no fear of being exposed, we are looking at an entirely different display of human nature within personality traits and the language will reveal itself. 


"I will not allow anyone to impugn my record, just because I misspoke a few words..."

Richard Blumenthal revealed himself as 'god-like' with his ability to control others, outside himself, by refusing them the ability to impugn his record. 

He had talked about what it was like for him, as a young man, when he was in Viet Nam, to a group of Viet Nam vets.  

He had never stepped foot in the country of Viet Nam, nor any country near Viet Nam, nor any country that resembled Viet Nam.  He had not left the United States.  

What is missed in this is right within his language when he introduced the word "record."

As a prosecutor, his "record" (note he calls it "my record") of successful prosecutions entered his language while talking about lying, which he minimized by using the word "mistruths" (signaling inability or refusal to take personal responsibility). 

He was concerned about his professional record under the topic of lying. 

How many convictions did he obtain using deception?

We will never know.  

We do know this, however: 

The people of Connecticut read his "apology" (as media reported it) and elected him to office.

Marion Cotillard Statement

In Deception Detection, we study words, not themes.  To learn advanced techniques, one must understand:  "I am not studying arson, nor am I studying murder, I am studying words."

This is important to remember as we take examples, not only from criminal cases, but in any public communication.  To limit it to criminal will hinder the professional analyst who may be employed in:

Analyzing Employment statements of "he said; she said" disputes that are common; 

Human Resource claims and counter claims. 

Statements with elements of relationship deception.  

At times, these words do reveal elements of Domestic Violence and child abuse.  There is a value in studying any communication that captures an audience's attention.  

To not study the words of athletes, celebrities and others in the news, is to miss an entire section of analysis that will be needed in advanced analysis. 

This is the statement of a French actress named, unofficially perhaps, as a 'corespondent' in a divorce case against actor Brad Pitt.

Why it is newsworthy will have to be explained by another.  Here, the media reported that the actress released a statement in which she  "denied an affair" with Pitt:  

This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. 

Here we have a lengthy introduction by the subject.  She did not say "I didn't have an affair with Brad Pitt" which would have been short and it would have been strong. 

In the introduction, she calls being publicly named in an upcoming divorce as "whirlwind news", in her own subjective understanding of what this means.  

She further emphasized this with time:  "...broke 24 hour ago" which lets us know that she has had time to think about her statement for a day.  

Priority?  She wants us to know that she is not "used to commenting..." and that she doesn't "take seriously" these things. 

However, she used the small word "but" at this point:

She doesn't take these things "seriously", with the use of the word "serious", now set into a form of rebuttal by the word "but" here.  We should consider that this allegation is very "serious" to the subject.

Why?

As a actor, fortunes are made with publicity and in our current culture, any publicity is advantageous, which is why celebrities and publicists often create (and phone in) their own "intrusion" or event. 

" but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. "

She called the allegation a "situation", and used the word "this", making it psychologically, a "situation" that is very close or impactful upon her.  

She stated that the situation is "spiraling", that is, is kinetic and that this "spiraling" is, indeed, "affecting people."

If she did not have an affair with Pitt, why would this not only be "affecting" people, but with "spiraling", why would the impact be increasing?

Best is to write, "I didn't have an affair with Brad Pitt", leaving her without impetus or responsibility to write anything further. 

She needs to tell the public something because there is an ongoing, escalating impact upon "people" (plural), that she loves.  We now listen to hear who she introduces into the statement first. 

Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. 

"Firstly" tells us that logical follow through is intended, yet the sentence is long (emotion).  What is "first" that the public is to know?

a.  Time 

it was "many years" that she met the "man"

b.  The man of her life, father of her son and baby, her love, her best friend, which all point to her, and not to the man.  This is how the man impacts her. 

Then notice the change introduced by one word when it comes to "need"; this man is the "only" one.  

The word "only" is called a 'dependent' word in Statement Analysis:  it works when another word (s) (thought representation) is present.  The man is compared to another who is not "needed."

This is a strong indication that the other man she is considering, is not the father of her children, was not met many years ago, and he is also someone she does not "need" in life.  

This sentence does not work unless she is thinking of another.  This is very close to an admission.  

Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. 

She told us of a "spiraling" impact upon others, which has caused her to rebut her own norm and respond, yet she is, "very well thank you", which also, via additional language, tells us she is anything but.  


This crafted conversation isn't distressing. 

Here she reports what the conversation is not; that is, in the negative.  

And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery.

Here she avoids issuing a denial, instead she has the need to insult those who want to know it is true by calling them "haters" who are "quick to pass judgement"; the judgment that she can answer, but avoids doing so.  

 Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci

We note the order of the names, and we note the unnecessary emphasis of "both";
We note that the respect is said to be "deep" and that this "moment" is "very tumultuous" but she does not clarify for whom.  


Analysis Conclusion:

She does not deny having an affair with Pitt;  therefore, we cannot deny it for her. 

She gives indication of the need to persuade, while coming close to an actual admission via analysis.   When taken with the lack of denial, it becomes even stronger. 

The need to speak out comes from impact, while then denying the impact upon self, yet it is she, herself, who communicates.  

The subject also uses the Statement Analysis principle: "I love you" element of public declaration.  The need is to tell a world wide audience of her devotion to "only" one man.  She does not state devotion to one man, but "only" one man; herein lies the key.  The word "only" is unnecessary unless there is more than one man, and given the context of the announcement, it is Pitt.  

The relationship is in trouble.

Guest Analysis: Valerie Timan Case by Ann Soule

                         Analysis of Luc Tieman by Ann Soule


What do the words we utter say about us? For some, we need lots of words for a picture to begin to emerge. For others, very few. For Luc Tieman, it took 20 words. 

 Luc’s wife, Valerie Tieman was last seen on August 30, 2016 by Luc himself at Walmart. He reported when he returned to their truck, she was gone. He did not report her missing. She was missing two weeks before her disappearance was reported by her parents who live out-of-state. During an interview with NEWS CENTER on Monday, 9/19/16, Luc spoke the following 20 words:

 "Just want her to come out, not be scared.  No one's going to get hurt or cares what she's done." 

 What does his 20 words say through the lens of Statement Analysis? 

1.   The pronoun "I" is missing at the start the sentence.  He begins a statement about his wife by ejecting himself from the sentence!  Luc, the subject, does not want to be psychologically in this sentence.  


 2.  "just" - is comparing something. Is the lesser of what he is considering or what he wanted?  What would he comparing her "coming out" with?  This is alarming. This, too, suggests domestic violence as part of his norm.  

3.  Next, we notice that he does not use her name.  This is to psychologically distance himself from his wife, while she is missing.  

"My wife Valerie" would have had:
a.  possessive pronoun 
b.  title "wife"
c.  name, Valerie

Just as he psychologically disappeared from his own statement, so it is that "Valerie" does not have a name.  To him, she is a non- person and he wants to distance himself from "her"; the non-person that has caused his involvement in this case.  

 Think about this:  He doesn't mention her name. 

It is possible he and the reporter may have been talking for a bit prior to this quote. "come out" - but there is no explanation for us to understand what she must come out of!  Come out? Of where? Is she in something? "not be scared" - this is in the negative of what not be feeling. This is sensitive and it is concerning. 

What would she be scared of. "No one's going to get hurt" - This is the language of Domestic Violence (DV)

Who is "no one"? This is a passive statement. In the negative. "going to" - is this to say some one already did get hurt? "hurt" - Where does the hurt come from? Leakage? Did she get hurt, or did he hurt her?

That he disappears from his own statement, removes her from it personally, and introduces the word "hurt", in a comparison sense, we are looking at someone who likely "hurt" her, or worse. 

I'm worried about this lady. I'm hearing domestic violence. I also hear blaming the victim as he also said but wasn't quoted by him specifically: Luc Tieman said the two were on good terms, which is unnecessary to say, but said she did mention some things a couple days before she went missing that made him worry, including her talking about another man. This speaks to not only jealousy, but he described "her talking" which puts the subtle blame upon the victim. 

The day she went missing, Luc said his wife told him she was going to leave and never come back. He shared a news reports from ABC on his facebook page. He made the following comment below on the post. I underlined a few words. 

Look who he "unifies" himself with via the pronoun "we":  

" Good news!! I just finished today's search with a couple of fine detectives (un-named) for Valerie Joy Tieman and one of the last places i saw her we found a set of (no later than a day old) womans footprints that matched her shoe patrern amd shoe size! they were with another set of male boots in skowhegan, maine. we took photos and will continue survaylence of the AO. 1 · 

What is "good news" about not finding her?


September 16 at 7:46pm Luc William Tieman "And we were talking about bringing in a k9 for tracking. Pray we find her! "

In analysis we call this ingratiating. 
Ann Soule, Statement Analyst I, Licensed Therapist 

This is similar to a father of a  missing boy praising law enforcement and search efforts for not finding his son.

 He also wrote in another post on 9/7/16: “There’s only ONE woman in the word for this man.”

This is similar to declaring his love, publicly, for her, which, within the realm of analysis, is a red flag.

Analysis Conclusion:  He has given us enough signals to know that he has guilty knowledge of what happened to her, and he is involved with Domestic Violence. 

update:  Valerie Timan's remains were found, and Luc Tieman has been arrested in her murder.

Lies: Collateral Damage

                                         Lies destroy lives.

In Ferguson, someone lied and said, "hands up; don't shoot."  Statement analysis of the officer as well as eye witnesses showed that no such words, nor motions, existed.  It was a lie that was a convenient lie that met with the position of the political elite.  Black Lives Matters is a terrorist organization that has led to the execution murders of police.  It is based upon a lie.  


In an overwhelming traction, this lie gave fuel to the political elite's anarchist narrative against authority, with police, specifically targeted by the president of the United States shortly after taking office in 2009.  Without knowledge, the president presumed to know that a Boston police officer was in the wrong because he was in a confrontation with a black person.  It was just the beginning.  

60 plus years of single party rule has produced inner city poverty and dependence upon government.  It has assaulted human nature, targeting the drive and initiative of men to provide for their families.  It has destroyed inner city black families in city after city throughout America.  This is why the administration is at war with the family, and seeks to redefine what a family is.  

Rather than admit the fallacy, propaganda has turned to say "police are killing blacks."

The problem with this is that is not true; it is another lie.  

Statistics are still available, on a still free internet that show that children raised in complete families are more likely to complete education, work and not commit crimes, while children born to homes without a father are likely to be sentenced to a life of poor eduction, poverty, and crime.  

Politicians ceased the opportunity to grant to inner city blacks the destructive moniker of "victim status" in which, no matter how much money is infused, inner city blacks kill blacks at a rate incomparable with all other situations.  Instead of admitting the failure of the de incentive programs, the president blamed guns, the tool used in violence.  In cities with the countries strictest gun laws, the murder rates remain the highest. 

From WSJ:

"....fatal police shootings make up a much larger proportion of white and Hispanic homicide deaths than black homicide deaths. According to the Post database, in 2015 officers killed 662 whites and Hispanics, and 258 blacks. (The overwhelming majority of all those police-shooting victims were attacking the officer, often with a gun.) Using the 2014 homicide numbers as an approximation of 2015’s, those 662 white and Hispanic victims of police shootings would make up 12% of all white and Hispanic homicide deaths. That is three times the proportion of black deaths that result from police shootings. 
The lower proportion of black deaths due to police shootings can be attributed to the lamentable black-on-black homicide rate. There were 6,095 black homicide deaths in 2014—the most recent year for which such data are available—compared with 5,397 homicide deaths for whites and Hispanics combined. Almost all of those black homicide victims had black killers. 
Police officers—of all races—are also disproportionately endangered by black assailants. Over the past decade, according to FBI data, 40% of cop killers have been black. Officers are killed by blacks at a rate 2.5 times higher than the rate at which blacks are killed by police."

Poverty is blamed, but then statistics show that these schools and community receive more money per student than anywhere else in the nation.
Police are blamed, which leads to hostilities, incivility, increased crime, and ultimately...more deaths.
Guns are blamed, but then it is cited that these cities have the strictest gun laws in the nation, and that the criminals did not obey the gun registration laws.  
Drugs are blamed but then the "stand down" order is given on the border, where drugs are funneled into America daily. 
We have even seen the fallacy of blaming the naturally recurring weather patterns on the plight of inner city America. 
These deceptions are used by the political elite to appeal to the moral narcissism within voters who's emotion trumps their employment of reason.  
This is yet another form of exploitation just as he turned mental illness into a 'civil right' and has had media fall in step.   
Just as the president knew, when the Islamic killer quoted the koran accurately, pledged his allegiance to ISIS, and went into an Orlando nightclub on a murderous spree, that it had "nothing to do with Islam", so it is he knows that the police are, after almost 8 years of vile rhetoric, the target of wrath.  
He has asked that we "vote" for him, for his legacy's sake. 
A legacy of lies that has divided the nation, while arming her enemies and put us on the fast track to import an ideology that calls for our destruction.  
If you disagree with him, you are racist, suffer from mental illness (irrational fear), and are so morally reprehensible, that you are unworthy of a voice. 
If you exercise discernment, you are, in a sense, "deplorable."  

Police deserve better.  

Even "deplorable" lives matter.
