I hate the police...actually, I hate our absurd, nonsensical justice system that basically gives police free reign to do or act however the hell they want and bully anyone they feel like just so long as it`s no one too important and nobody catches them on camera.

I say this a lot, but who`s the idiot who came up with the idea of just handing power over other citizens and the ability to arbitrarily enforce the law to random people and didn`t ever think `gee, maybe this will attract bullies and self-serving non-nice individuals who will abuse the system and easily bend to corruption?`

The sad part is that there are kind officers out there who want to help people and who operate in a completely ethical manner. Unfortunately that doesn`t change all the officers out there who care only about themselves, love being handed false power and will do anything if they think they`ll get away with it.

Well, I guess the Germans have had their fair share of firing bullets.

More fun facts:
-> 6-10 people were shot by german police officers per year (average, last 10 years)
-> homicides w/guns in germany: somewhere between 150-200/year
-> US population: 3.8 times bigger than german population

So the stats in the US should be:
-> ~38 people shot by police/year and
-> ~750 homicides involving firearms/year, right?

And no, I`m not trying to bash on the US, I just wonder...

"why is there a Haunter trying to grab your boobs?"

Haunter knows what he likes, bro. I didn`t even know he was there until I developed the picture!

Too right! Prison`s not a punishment if it`s an upgrade!

I will be one of the first to tell you that the American Justice system is severely flawed. Our prison system is a revolving door where criminals come out worse than when they went in. We also have socioeconomic factors in place that actively create criminals. Shooting someone 84 times does not help the situation.

"Honestly, child porn in the newspaper section would have upset me pretty much the same."

Yewkay thought process on display, the right to own guns is as bad as child rape, so glad I live in America.

OK, just to give you an idea: when I (as a German) came to the US for the first time I went to Walmart (no, this is not about Walmart) where I saw all these guns on display. I thought it was sick and ridiculous. Honestly, child porn in the newspaper section would have upset me pretty much the same. But you guys (in the US) are so used to "guns" that it is probably difficult to realize that it could be different. I guess as long there is no change in the way you think(!) about guns, controls and everything you will have to live with your ridicolous high death rate. By the way: I feel way more safe here than in the US.

Or is it because of ridiculously loose gun laws and unbelievable prison sentences?

No wonder criminals shoots at police more, they are desperate since they know that their life is anyway over going in to prison slave camps for life with no chance of rehabilitation..

Combined with guns apparently lying everywhere.. Recipe for disaster, if you ask me.

"how many of those 84 hit him?"

Everything is more expensive here in Germany, but German cops are as well equipped as the Americans. They simply don`t tend to come up against criminals armed with guns. The penalties here for having a gun illegally (or worse, firing it at someone) are severe. Which is fine, cos in exchange they let us drive at insane speed on the autobahn. I stick to 125mph myself, but that`s not that fast by German standards.

It would also be interesting to compare how many bullets were fired AT police officers in 2011 in Germany and the US...

@jops360 - I`ve seen that happen so many times in Iraq/Afghanistan I lost count. A lot of those guys were using methamphetamines and you`d see them take 10-20 rounds before they hit the deck. It was like something out of a horror film!

Cops in the U.S. are trained to empty their clips if they feel threatened. My Dad witnessed a jewelry store robbery where the cops surrounded the guy and unloaded on him when he reached for something.

The truth is somewhere in the middle. There are plenty of pathetic excuses for police officers, but there are also plenty of hard working, dedicated, honest police officers.

Yes Roland, lots of scummy people. Lots of great people too.

Every profession will have its best and its worst just as life has good and bad in general.

The problem in the US isn`t the police, it the citizens. Our police never know what kind of disgusting violent low life attempting to kill them or others they will be dealing with on a day-to-day basis.

Depends on whether or not you see shooting at bad guys as good or bad.
If someone killed someone else and has the intention of doing it again, then you have a right to end their life.

In Re: Swoop`s story "Arian called 911 while on the chase, telling the dispatcher- “I have a gun. I’ve been arrested before for possession of destructive devices; I’m not afraid of the cops… If they pull their guns, I’m going to have to pull my gun out on them.”"

Yeah, I have a relative that is a cop, and even I can agree they`re usually douches. A cop busted down my front door and pulled a gun on my mom one time because someone accidently called 911 on my phone at school.

"Hey Gator Grad - The cops in Cali just fired 91 shots at a 19 year old unarmed kid after a police chase. Pull your head outta your ass. Cops in the US are a goddamn joke."

Again with the lazy statistics. If they didn`t hit him at all I will agree with you. If they hit him a lot, they did pretty well. We need to know the whole story.

it`s kind of like Predator where the guy uses a full mini gun round and only manages to make the Predator bleed a little...

Statistics don`t mean anything. For example, ~25% of New Yorkers are of African decent whereas 0.6% of Germans are of African decent. This clearly accounts for the above statistic.

Oh wait, no that probably isn`t related at all, it`s just more numbers.

The ONE case of 84 shots could easily be an outlier. Maybe that guy was suspected of murdering 500 babies with a machine gun, which he is now using to shoot at the police, oh and he`s wearing body armor so the first 83 shots did minimal damage.

Tl;Dr - Doesn`t mean sh*t.

our guys are trained to unload the clip while walking toward the subject if they have to fire. they told me this in dare while recalling a case where the person was hopped up on pcp. they said the guy didnt go down until 15 shots were in him. i know this is messed up training.

You know this country is getting poor when we worry about how many bullets we are shooting at murder suspects.

Or is that not what this was about?
