    This is not the USA... so cops are viewed very differently here. Probably because they talk to people and don't threaten them with arrest, pound them into the ground or shoot innocent people... probably why.

    I know. That's not the point. The point is that when people feel threatened, need help, etc they call the cops. Our society seems to forget that.

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

    Interesting thread.
    There's a list at Wiki - though I don't know how accurate it is . . . List of killings by law enforcement officers in the United States 2014 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    January 2014 . . .

    Reached for waistband after told to raise hands.

    Produced firearm / engaged officers with fire

    Exchanged gunfire

    Hmm - this one's interesting. Autopsy reported victim died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds - but officers also opened fire because she sat with a gun in her hand. Family disputes autopsy findings in shooting death | StarNewsOnline.com

    This one I remember debating - the family called hte officers to assist with mentally ill son. He charged with a knife and they shot him. Lodi police release names of officers involved in Jan. 25 shooting | The Sacramento Bee

    Shot a man while doing a welfare check - and the incident is unclear as to what happened and why it turned into a shooting. Niece: Man slain by SWAT officers

    Man shot after refusing to take hands out of pockets. Later they found he was unarmed.

    Don't know why this is listed. A former officer killed himself an family in murder-suicide. But that wasn't 'in the line of duty' - Utah Local News - Salt Lake City News, Sports, Archive - The Salt Lake Tribune

    Man suspected of attempted robbery confronted and then charged an officer telling him he wasn't going to jail.

    LIttle details released on this one - man shot at carwash when officer checked on abandoned vehicle. Yakima Herald Republic | Man shot by police at car wash identified

    Now this might be what I'm remembering - the schizophrenic son was threatening mom with a screwdriver. NEW DETAILS: State group defends officers' actions in teen shoot - WECT TV6-WECT.com:News, weather & sports Wilmington, NC

    Shot home invasion suspect during a struggle

    Shot man who was carrying a machete and confronting officers

    Guy was in a shoot off with officers

    Guy was shot after officer returned fire

    Guy was shot after officers responded to reports of men exchanging fire.

    Mentally disabled man was shot after a call RE domestic dispute. Police called to house before fatal shooting | The Columbus Dispatch

    Lawyer thought his home was being burglarized - someone called police - and when police arrived the man opened fire. 'Lovable and Laid Back' Texas Lawyer Killed in Police Shootout - ABC News - Sounds like he thought they were robbers and not cops?

    Little details given on this one: Mayes County deputy fatally shoots man on New Year's Day - KJRH.com

    Man shot and killed after officers responded to reports of a carjacking - little details otherwise. Metro Detroit | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    ---

    So what i see is this [just from looking at one month of incidences listed - I'm sure there were some beyond that list]

    A) As we all know - officers really don't know how to respond to the mentally ill / disabled when they become violent.

    B) Poor reporting - if you're going to write an article do the research. It's a waste of time otherwise.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Put a LEO and I in a room. Count the civilians in the room.

    Interesting. So the question in the OP was confusing to you? You just had no idea what they were really talking about?
