I read an article that said that you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist... that seems low. I don't see terrorists EVER around here but I see cops a lot.
Another also stated that around 5,000 civilians were killed by cops. That is 500 more than the 4,500 soldiers killed in Iraq during the same time period. While I know a lot of the civilians are scum bag gangs and such... a lot are innocent people, including children, like the ones shot during no-knock raids to THE WRONG HOUSE.
