Police In Norway Haven’t Killed Anyone In Nearly A Decade

Police In Norway Havent Killed Anyone In Nearly A Decade

With police murdering people on a daily basis in the United States, it is interesting to see that police in other countries haven’t killed anyone in years. In Norway, for example, the police haven’t killed anyone in nearly a decade.

According to a recent report conducted by the country’s government, police in Norway have been far less likely to draw their weapons on suspects, and they are even less likely to actually shoot.

In fact, the report found that Norway’s police only fired their guns in two situations last year, neither case resulting in a fatality.

There are many differences in culture and policy that contribute to the lower occurrence of police murders in Norway, but one obvious factor is that police in Norway rarely actually have their guns on them.

While it is truly every human’s right to own and carry tools of self-defense like guns, it does seem that preventing police from having guns in most situations will allow them to resolve a conflict without escalating it.

In the US, police are trained to shoot first and ask questions later and are programmed to think that every civilian is a potential criminal or attacker. However, this type of mentality is counter-productive, and is not at all necessary. There are other solutions possible that don’t involve immediate violence.

For example, Dale Brown of Detroit’s “threat management center” has shown that crime can be stopped and lives can be saved by independent people using nonlethal tactics.

In areas of Detroit where police don’t answer 911 calls, Dale Brown took matters into his own hands and started taking those calls himself, and because Dale was not “above the law” as police officers claim to be, he had to solve these crimes without hurting people, because he would actually be held accountable for his actions.

Dale has also been able to service poor neighborhoods for free, by financing his business through providing security for high-income areas.

Check out Dale and his work in the video below to learn how protection without violence is possible.
