I do not know what is happening here, yet even though population per capita has increased exponentially there seems to be a shocking amount of deaths at the hands of law enforcement. Our tax money.. should not be paying those who are supposed to serve and protect us if they are allowed to beat us or shoot us. Now I know there are justifiable and rational explanations to some situations, I am far from unreasonable, yet there seems to be far too many where the ends do not justify the means. Far too many to be honest. It scares the life out of me not sure about you.
I am showing the information found on the web site listed seems from 1889 to 2009 there were a reported 133 civilian deaths by law enforcement. in 2009 there were 64 deaths.. and well after that it is getting horrible. in 2010 it climbed to 90 and 2011 2012 2013
