  •  Police killings: 400 per year. (1+ / 0-)

    Suicides: 20,000 per year.

    Civilian homicides: 11,000 per year.

    Accident: 850.

    Fear of "jack-booted government thugs" has been a long standing element in the paranoid constructs offered by the Lyndon LaRouche and NRA propaganda agencies.

    In most all police killings, however, the deceased are observed armed and in the act of armed assault or committing a felony or  threatening (often insanely) to kill family members. That is more than 95% of police killings year after year.

    Yes, believing that police are to be feared is not justified statistically. But no, there's not much counter to the propaganda mills that push the LaRouche/NRA dishonesties.
