American Cops Now Being Sent To Scotland To Learn How To Stop Killing People

American Cops Now Being Sent To Scotland To Learn How To Stop Killing PeopleIn all of 2011, British police killed 2 people. In 2012, 1 person. In 2013, a total of 3 bullets left the barrels of British police guns, and no one was killed.

In the last two years, a total of 4 people have lost their lives because of British cops, bringing the total number of citizens killed in the UK to 7 in the last 5 years.

On average, police in America kill at a rate 70 times that of its Western neighbors. In just the last week of December, American cops killed more people than the entire country of England killed in the last five years. 

But if we zoom out just a little further, those numbers become even more shocking. Since 1990, police officers in the United Kingdom have killed exactly 58 people.

In the last two weeks of December, police in America killed 60 citizens — It took English cops 25 years to do what American cops did in just the last two weeks of December.

On average, British police kill around two citizens a year. American cops kill more than that every day.

Of course, all those killed were not innocent, but many were unarmed, shot while running away, and their deaths recorded on video. And all of them deserved due process.

Some will say that since the US is much larger in population than the UK, that is why American cops kill more. But this is a farce.

To expose this farce, we can compare the US with communist China.

China, whose population is 4  1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.

Law enforcement in the United States killed 92 times more citizens in the same period.

So why are police in the US so much more likely to kill than all of these other first world countries?

We will not pretend that cops in the US kill 70 times more people than other first world countries for one simple reason. However, part of the multifaceted situation which has led to the trigger-happiness of American cops is their training.

This excessive violence has gotten so bad that American police chiefs are being sent to Scotland to learn steps to change this deadly paradigm. A former hostage negotiator with the Boston police department, Chuck Wexler, brought a team of cops across the pond in a last-ditch effort to curb killer cops and his story was documented by Sky News.

According to Sky News:

As the two sets of police officers met, Mr Wexler described how if confronted by a suspect holding a rock an American officer would pull out his gun.

“You’re going to kill someone for throwing a rock. That’s what you’re gonna do,” said Mr Wexler.

“How would society over here think about you shooting someone with a rock? They would not accept it.”

The senior American officers, from forces such as the NYPD and LAPD, watched demonstrations at Police Scotland training centres.

Sky News cameras joined them as they went out on patrol in Glasgow, and watched as unarmed police dealt with a variety of potentially violent situations.

What the report showed is that cops in Scotland know how to avoid confrontation. Instead of immediately resorting to deadly violence, the Scottish cop will step back, use protective shields, or move behind a car for protection.

What the report also found is that American police have a knack for verbally escalating situations too.

Sergeant Jim Young trains hundreds of Scottish police recruits every year.

“The American style of policing, it’s very authoritative,” he said.

“There’s a difference of going in, straight up at this level, whereby you’re ordering people, you’re shouting at them. You can’t go anywhere after that.

“But if you start down low you can adjust your communications to suit.”

Basically, what this experience is showing is that American police are aggressive both verbally and physically — and it’s deadly.

The good news is that there are cops out there that know this and they are taking action, like the chiefs going to Scotland, to correct it.

“It’s about time that we step up and this is our chance,” said Mr Wexler. “It’s a crisis but it’s also our chance to do the right thing.”

Below is this eye-opening video of American cops learning to be less violent.
