    Calm down cops. Quit escalating a situation till you feel the need to kill someone.

    Yeah, because the drug addles POS out there has no blame in the matter.
    You pull a weapon on a police officer you get some sort of response.
    But Mr. Knight and the Justice Policy Institute would not want to actually look into the circumstances surrounding those 500 deaths.

    50 a year, that’s not bad considering the huge number of violent morons out there.

    Uh..guys, it’s 500 a year, NOT 50.
    5000 divided by 10…

    “The death of a single person is a tragedy…”
    More than one a day is just a statistic showing cops kill more Americans than terrorist.

    And it will continue to be treated as a statistic since it is quite obvious only “them” are getting killed.

    A few years ago, a small town New England police officer stopped a car late one night for a simple moving violation.
    The driver was waiting for him with a gun, and killed him as he approached the car. Similiar incidents occur all over the country. Although there are some police who over-react, I cannot blame officers, in general, for being skittish when confronting a suspect alone.

    That’s actually a really good idea

    @DaSharkie

    In some cases no weapons were pulled.

    Might be a result of the gun culture…

    Lets see? Cops kill crooks, (mostly) Terrorists kill INNOCENT PEOPLE! (mostly)

    I THINK this cartoonist doesn’t do much thinking.

    I think this may be a case of misapplied statistics… To be more useful we really ought to know how many were ‘questionable’ officer involved shootings rather than the total number.

    Also, I’m not sure if this comic was meant to demonize cops or point out our overblown reaction to terrorism…

    @R-V Good distinction. The law enforcement officers I know go to great lengths to keep every encounter nonviolent.
