Re: 411 People Shot & Killed by Police so far in 2017

    One would then consider that cops need to be re-trained on how to react when they see someone and consider what they are seeing.   The cops are now of the shoot first and then oops, it was a cell phone or a toy, or nothing at all - but the cops continue to play the "I feared for my life " card.      The 411 killed so far this year by police don't get a RE-DO on their life.

Sadly several of our cohorts here can't seem to understand that when the police are confronted with an armed person endangering others they do not have the ability to get out the couch and analyze the person.

Here is one of your "victims" (your word). It is a shame the police didn't shoot sooner or straighter so they weren't injured.

411 People Shot & Killed by Police so far in 2017

Message 125 of 139 (96 Views)

411 people killed so far in 2017, by law enforcement.  The results demonstrate one in five victims suffered from mental illness.  Sounds like an untreated, or poorly treated societal problem.

 

411 Americans Killed By Law Enforcement So-far in 2017 - 20% were mentally ill

It's amazing to me how often Conservatives distort what others say/post and make wild assumptions about others.  They're usually wrong.



 


If you haven't noticed ........... it's most often all that they have.


Your point is what - that those 641 lives in Chicago are not relevant because they were not shot by the police?


Really?  That's how you interpreted the comment?


A 'selective' interpretation !

Gun Toters once again try the big :  DISTRACTION game...and lose.  

 

If they are really interested in the number of gun related shooting, then zippy, report all the gun shooting.   It will indicate that shooting increase with the number of "I love NRA" loons who have lowered the standards for gun toting.      More guns = more shootings.     

 

Police killings continue to rise and the number represented here is an increase for previous years...but gun toter's and their resident stupid seem not to care that many people are dying needlessly because of police being out of control and legislators are more than willing to ignore those deaths because of $$$ from NRA.

250 People Shot & Killed by Police so far in 2017

Message 128 of 139 (230 Views)

We've now surpassed 250 police killings in the US so far this year and our on pace to exceed 1,000.

 

I find The Washington Post database to be very helpful, but another forum memebr has sent this database to me and it's rather user friendly as well.  Thank you.
