A senior researcher at Michigan State University was effectively fired after sharing facts from a study conducted last year that conclusively proved there is no widespread racial bias in police shootings.
Physicist Stephen Hsu was forced to resign from his position as vice president of Research and Innovation after being hounded by a Twitter mob for using facts to counter their claims that police are systemically racist.
Hsu interviewed MSU Psychology professor Joe Cesario last month, who has found from extensive research that “the race of the officer doesn’t matter when it comes to predicting whether black or white citizens are shot.”
Cesario’s study concluded that “contrary to activist claims and media reports, there is no widespread racial bias in police shootings.”
After the study was cited in a June 3 Wall Street Journal op-ed called “The Myth of Systemic Police Racism”, The MSU Graduate Employees Union slammed Hsu for bring attention to the research, charging that it does “not alight with public statements issued by MSU.”
GEU Vice President Acacia Ackles commented that “It is the union’s position that an administrator sharing such views is in opposition to MSU’s statements released supporting the protests and their root cause and aim.”
