The LA times has a headline about police being the leading cause of death for young black males that is not even remotely true

The headline of the story is “Getting killed by police is a leading cause of death for young black men in America.”

PJ Media took a look at the statistics in Los Angeles as previously reported by the Times:
Ms. Kahn’s own newspaper maintains a database of all homicide victims killed in Los Angeles County since 2000, and it includes data on the race of the victim and on whether the police were involved. Of the 15,896 homicide victims in the county recorded as of this writing, 5,411 were blacks killed by someone other than a police officer, and 212 were blacks killed by the police.
The center for disease control statistics also refutes the premise of the story.
