The same way one comes to a reasonable conclusion about the population of the planet: Take a statistical sample and extrapolate. Do you think they count every single person on the planet and come up with a number? If in the US the census bureau consistently undercounts the population do you think that it is unreasonable to believe that the aforementioned statistic (LE kills of minorities) is underreported?

All that not withstanding I ask you to consider this: The number 1. If there a single incident that is unjust is it unreasonable to examine the entire enterprise?
