In 2012 - You were TEN times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a terrorist.

So I dug up some figures, and crunched some numbers.

The old figure, compiled from NSC statistics, had it at 8 times.

If you want to include ALL people killed by cops in 2012, it is over 65 times as likely.



587 Mundanes killed by LEOs in 2012.

64 cops killed by violent encounter in 2012. (This excludes car accidents, heart attacks, accidental gunfire etc, the total was 120, one of the lowest figures ever, this year is down 14 percent from that.)

http://www.odmp.org/search/year?year=2012



9 people killed by "terrorism" in 2012. (Interesting to note that the rate of terrorism deaths, while still miniscule, has increased three times from what it was in 1985. )

That means that just 15.5 percent of all those killed by law enforcement, would have to have been killed under "questionable" circumstances, to make the following true:

You are ten times more likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist.

They are not very effective then.

And have not been over a thirty year period.

Excepting 2001 and you know what I think happened there.

The same thing that now has been proven to have happened in Benghazi.

In any case, the minuscule number is not worth doing what we have done to our country:

Turn it into an open air, free range, prison under 24/7 surveillance.

Call it whatever you want, but you can not call it freedom.
