    Those are just a few
    That's one of the favorite tactics of cops for killing people and getting away with it. Ask for ID and then when the person tries to get it cops claim that they were scared and kill the unwitting suspect. Many sociopaths like the thrill of killing and can sate their bloodlust by joining the police force.

    The Post's analysis also indicates the daily death toll for 2015 is close to 2.6 as of Friday. At that pace, police will have shot and killed nearly 1,000 people by the end of the year, the paper said.

    U.S. Police Have Shot Dead 385 People In Five Months: REPORT

    I'm scared as hell. How did it get this bad? When have they turned into bad characters? And why?! Do the police ever evaluate whether any of those killings are avoidable? or preventable? And what can we do to change the situation? Because the situation is really horrible!
    It has been a long time since I drove through a slum, but remembering it it seems less surprising that so many citizens might get shot by the police. That does not mean that the number is not more than a decimal too large.

    Evidence? No? Didn't think so.

    Yes, many is the sleepless night I've spent worrying about those horrific attacks. In a wretched country like this, I suppose they are just part of daily life. Why, only the other day in my town, the stormtroopers, aka police, walked up to an adorable little five-year-old girl who was doing nothing more harmful than playing with a ball in her front yard, and shot her a dozen or more times in the head. They did it just for fun, as her mother looked on in horror. As the blood streamed out over the child's golden curls, the wretched murderers guffawed, and shocked witnesses recalled that the mother's anguished screams seemed to amuse them all the more.

    That's very similar to the Tamir Rice shooting.

    I see. So, one incident is proof of, "That's one of the favorite tactics of cops for killing people and getting away with it"? Really? That's what I thought.

    But the odds of that happening to you if you do not break the law are probably minuscule.

    Just the general odds - 1,000 out of 300+million is 300,000 to 1 against being killed by the police...I'd say those are pretty good odds. Don't break the law and those odds probably skyrocket to millions to one.

    How on Earth you can be scared to death about being killed by a cop (assuming you are law abiding) when the odds are millions to one against it happening is beyond me.
    It's why the lottery does so well in this country.
