The following statistics seem impossible to believe. While I wonder how accurately the UK has been tracking these numbers historically, the enormous spread seems much too large to ignore, and is a national embarrassment that should be dealt with immediately.

From the Free Thought Project:

A new report by ThinkProgress.com unearthed disturbing figures when it came to the number of police-related deaths that occurred in America in the month of March alone.

 

Just last month, in the 31 days of March, police in the United States killed more people than the UK did in the entire 20th century. In fact, it was twice as many; police in the UK only killed 52 people during that 100 year period.

 

According to the report by ThinkProgess, in March alone, 111 people died during police encounters — 36 more than the previous month.

 

This high number in March increased the average for police killings from every 8.5 hours, to nearly 1 police killing every 6.5 hours in the US.

 

China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.

On average, US police kill people at a rate 70 times higher than any of the other first world countries as they “protect and serve” the American citizens.

This is not what freedom looks like.

UK police don't kill anyone because UK police are not armed and neither are UK citizens. Our Police force hands out speeding tickets and marshal football matches.

If the bad guys are really bad guys (tooled up) we revert to our elite military forces who enjoy storming embassies, assassinating pension fraudsters on the high seas, scuttling drug runners, and just totally overpowering anyone they are pitched against on civvy street.

If you pull a firearm in public in the UK you are taking on the SAS and they generally laugh at you before emptying a full magazine into your corpse.

Our police have lots of punch ups but no shoot outs. Nobody here would trust those knuckleheads with guns.

Shoot outs just aren't very British.

Adam 12 was a Jack Webb show.  He tried to save Blue Boy.  Notice how this dumb shit is painted in UCLA colors.  Total f**kwit UCLA college ball team loving doper.

LOL!  Looked it up. Aszhole was a UCLA grad.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Burns_%28actor_and_historian%29

He died in Vietnam with Beaver, Eddie Haskell and Lumpy Rutherford from Leave it to Beaver.  Eddie Haskell aka Ken Osmond became Alice Cooper before he was killed at Khe Sahn in Vietnam.

Sad.

Ken Osmond did not die at Khe Sahn, nor was he Alice Cooper.  He is still alive.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Osmond

What a load of bunk.  Alice Cooper is still alive and well, as is Ken Osmond, and they are 2 different people.

Michael Burns, who played Blue Boy, is alive and well raising horses in KY afer retiring as a History Prof.

Frank Bank played Lumpy, and later became a bond broker in L.A.

None of these dudes ever came close to Khe Sahn - never even went to Viet Nam, or served in the military, for that matter.

Wrong on all counts, Freddie.  You are slipping.

Urban legends[edit]

In the early 1970s, a story was widely reported that Osmond had become rock star Alice Cooper.[5]According to Cooper, the rumor began when a college newspaper editor asked him what kind of kid he was, to which Cooper replied "I was obnoxious, disgusting, a real Eddie Haskell"; however, the story ended up reporting that Cooper was the real Eddie Haskell.[5] Cooper would later tell the New Times, "It was the biggest rumor that ever came out about me. Finally, I got a T-shirt that said 'No, I am not Eddie Haskell'. But people still believed it."[5]

Another widely reported urban legend of the 1970s was that Osmond had grown up to become adult film star John Holmes.[15][16][17] The story apparently began when fan magazines falsely reported that Osmond had embarked on such a career.[18] The rumor was dispelled when a Los Angeles movie theater lit up its marquee advertising "Eddie Haskell of TV in 'Behind the Green Door' - X-rated", prompting Osmond himself, then an LAPD officer, to go into the theater to request that the manager of the theater pull the plug on the marquee.[18]

Default response seems to be "take gun out of holster and commence firing".

Remember when they had two cops in a car? 

Common sense out the window.

Amurika!

Anyone who has ever watched COPS knows how worked up these guys get.  It is no wonder that they blow away so many people.

The US police force training is now coming from Israel.

Go figure.

They have been taught how to break donkey skulls as an occupying force.

So the "police" need a new name. Reed and Malloy or even Barney Fife were police. These are dangrous, militarized, homicidal maniac roid rage summary execution squads who think they are at war with the american public [because this is how they've been trained].

If being fat and killing people were a sport, we'd definitely be the best player on the team. Murica is the fucking Michael Jordan of obesity and violence.

Yup, I've been invited to the Obesity Symposium to learn about the care and special needs of the obese patient. This is now a yearly event. I usually go to the Tuberculosis Symposium to learn about emerging XDR strains and challenges facing us due to proximity to the border. I'm always depressed afterward so I thought I'd give the Obesity symposium a shot this year. Maybe there would be some humor in it.

The good news is it's mostly preventable; the bad news is few people can change and most docs know much about feeding patients to the pharmacological hampster wheel and nothing of nutrition.  Check this out: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diabetes-as-a-disease-of-fat-toxicity/

I still blame the cops for nor being smart enough to understand that they are being manipulated by the Zionists to be the enemy of the people and separate from them.

... people have to consent to becoming ignorant homicidal goons.

Shit, zionism has nothing to do with it. Get over it.

This is pure simple unethical behavior ziionist or not. You have a problem.

“Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet.

We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects.

In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best.

Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races.

Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron.

The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”

Menaheim Begin, 6th Prime Minister of Israel. speech to the Knesset (24 June 1982), quoted in “Begin and the ‘Beasts” Amnon Kapeliouk, in The New Statesman (25 June 1982);

Unethical behaviour?  My, we're really letting loose with our potty mouth today aren't we?

Offhand, I'd suggest it's a little worse than "unethical".

Don't blame the cops. In order to become a LEO, your IQ cannot be above 100. That's policy. Had two friends that were denied jobs as LEO because their IQs were "too high."

It is vital that the organs of the National State be just intelligent enough to follow orders, but not intelligent enough to question their Corporate Council masters.

What they fail to realize is that they are being thrown under the bus as much as the people they are killing.

Corporate Council (attorneys) need to be held accountable. As in, Gitmo and Pound Them In The Ass prison.

Are gangstas considered civilians?  You mean the ones with the shiny Badges that make them above the law or the ones that wear "colors" as a badge?  What is a cop if not a civilian, sure isn't Military, though "they" wished.

Neither the UK or China allows citizens to own guns. Last month's statistic includes a guy in San Jose Calif that shot and killed a cop before cops shot and killed him. The article is comparing apples and oranges.

Must be 'emotional' downvotes you are getting, because what you just said is statistically, and logically, true. Compare like groups, or don't fucking compare at all.

But there is no place on earth like the USA.

This is a very divisive issue, even within families.  

To me, Southern born & bred who grew up hunting, fishing, and in a military family, guns are just a natural part of life.  With multiple handguns, rifles, and shotguns around the house, it has never even crossed my mind to be without them.

To my 44 year old son, L.A. based and in the entertainment biz, guns are hideous and he is all for gun control.

To me, guns represent safety, food, and a way of life.

To him, they only mean danger and fear.  His experiences living in San Francisco and Los Angeles for the past 20+ years have been much different than mine.

This is another one of life's dilemmas with no solution.  Urban vs rural is really what it comes down to in most cases, in my opinion.

Few jobs are more high stress than being a policeman.  There is potential danger in every encounter, and the adrenaline stays elevated.  It's not a job that everyone can handle, and I fear we have too many cops that have become jaded, or who never should have passed the psychological screening to begin with.  Having to deal with the worst parts of society eventually gets to you, and it is hard to maintain respect for those who don't have respect for you

However, shooting a non-violent suspect from a traffic stop in the back 8 times from a distance is murder, and things like this are happening far too often.  The entire crinimal justice system needs to be torn apart and re-built.  We need far fewer laws, much more strictly enforced.  Sentencing needs to come from the approach of how can the perp become a plus for society instead of being made a lifelong burden on the back of society, which is what we are doing to huge numbers of our population.  Too many people are doing time for things that shouldn't even be criminal.  Others who did commit crimes that were relatively minor are languishing in jail with decades long sentences.

Too bad it will probably get much worse.

Which is just one more reason we should break the big clusterfuck into smaller republics. The place is just too damn big to be governed by 535 corrupt politicians and 9 morons in black robes.

Break this mother up and leave the farmers alone to do what farmers do. Break this mother up and let the city folk do what city folk do. Break this mother up and leave me the fuck alone!

And while we are at it bulldoze DC (especially The Eccles Bldg.), Ft. Meade and Langley. And if the dozer crews are still motivated, have them make a few passes up and down Wall St.

A guy can dream can't he?

Demographics are destiny. Until recently the UK was 99% White Christian. Once segregation ended, US cities became war zones, so the police needed to become "soldiers".
