By and large it is MEN that are being murdered by the police.

Just another in a long, long line of them. Strangely, no one says this is a war on men, but if it happens to a woman it is likely to be singled out as violence against women.

Seems to me that violence against men is considered rather matter-of-factly.

1. Our culture tacitly aproves of male violence... so long as it is against other males.

2. When was the last time you saw the headline, "unarmed woman shot by police"?

Certainly it does happen, but not nearly as often. As a man, and especially if you are a black man, you have a reason to be afraid of going to jail or being shot every single time you interact police. This is something women don't have to worry about.
