    Re: FBI reports 27 cops were killed last year. But how many civilians...

    So sick of the anti-LE attitude of our society. There's a few simple ways to avoid a run in with a cop. 1) Don't commit a crime 2) Stay away from areas where crimes are typically committed. 3) Do what you're told when you approached by a LEO. If people would follow those simple rules, a vast majority of the incidents that occur wouldn't happen. Are all cops great guys? No they're not. But most of them are good citizens that are doing a job most of you whining on this forum dont have the balls to do. So instead of constantly second guessing their actions, how about giving them the benefit of the doubt every once in a while. Lastly, remember one thing. You can whine, bi***, and moan all you want about cops. But when you wake up at 2am to a window breaking in your home, remember who's coming to help.

    YOU claimed that there are now 5,000 fewer, what was it, ****heads in the world?

    I simply asked how you knew that every single one of those were ****heads and that there weren't at least a few that should be alive today. That's all I want to know.
    No, you implied they weren't ****heads. And if you read the original post you'll see he said "It looks like".

    [QUOTE=OrphanSlug;1064020967]Best I can tell no one, including the FBI, has a statistic on how many people are killed by the Police each year. I've seen reportings of everything from 400 "justifiable homicides by law enforcement" to as many as 500 or more. The main issue for the lack of knowledge is reporting, not every police agency across the nation reports to the FBI when a police officer kills someone. If deemed justified by some other local agency or organization of law then it very well may not be reported to the FBI for their stats on the matter. I would agree that is a problem, but in itself the number does not identify a solution.[/QUOTE]


    That's correct but it would identify a problem.

    You're calling him out as saying something definitive when he didn't. He, like you, is supposing, theorizing. You're the pot calling the kettle black here.

    I don't necessarily think that pointing out the sheer number of civilians cops kill and stating that there should be something we can do to control it is akin to dismissing the full of the police.

    About 10 minutes too late to do anything. If someone is breaking into your place, cops cannot be there instantaneously. Better off providing for your own protection in that case.

    This is what I was responding to specifically.
