(FOX NEWS) FBI Director, James Comey spoke to thousands of police officials on Sunday saying the lack of data is leading people to believe that "biased police are killing black men at epidemic rates”.
Comey made his comments at the International Chiefs of Police Conference in San Diego, acknowledging that videos of fatal police encounters are helping feed the frenzy that "something terrible is being done by the police”. He also said that people "actually have no idea if the number of black people or brown people or white people being shot by police is up, down or sideways over the last three years, five years, 10 years".
Comey’s comments come at a time when parts of the nation are restless due to the increasing amount of videos showing law enforcement using deadly force.
