Police Killings

In light of another "justified" police murder here's a few fun facts. 

In 2013 there were 461 recorded justifiable homicides in America. However, the true number is likely in the thousands because many police departments do not report this data, for obvious reasons.
Those who defend police homicides would say, a thousand plus people a year aint bad right?

Well, let's see how many people the police killed in other comparable countries. 

Canada 12 in 2013
Germany 8 in last 2 years
Great Britain ZERO in the last 2 years

What about all the officers killed by criminals? 
27 American police officers will killed by criminals in 2013.

More fun facts:
Utah police killings are the second-leading cause of homicide between 2010 and October of 2014.
Utah police are responsible for more of the state's deaths than gang members, drug dealers or child abusers.

As we found out yesterday, the idiot police officer that strangled Eric Garner to death, was justified in doing so. *
The funny thing is, that's not even the most disturbing part of the video. I can understand one idiot doing something stupid. But it is very hard to imagine how so many cops and medical professionals could stand around and watch a the life leave the body of a dying man without offering any help. They could have saved him! Instead every one of those jerk offs in the video stood around and watched him die.
Eric Garner's crime? Allegedly selling cigarettes. Not packs, individual cigarettes.
Eric Garner is survived by his wife and 6 children.

Ramsey Orta, person responsible for filming Eric Garners murder, was indicted a month later as a result of a police sting operation where the police claim that he put a gun in the pocket of a teenage. 

“When they searched me, they didn’t find nothing on me,” Orta said to the Advance regarding his arrest. “And the same cop that searched me, he told me clearly himself, that karma’s a bitch, what goes around comes around,” Orta said.
