"Since 9/11, and the subsequent militarization of the police by the Department of Homeland Security, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by US police officers. The civilian death rate is nearly equal to the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq. In fact, you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist."
If the 4,489 American soldiers killed in combat in Iraq constitute a condition of war, why can United States police departments kill nearly 5,000 American citizens and not be viewed as agents of war against we the American people?
Since 9/11… about 5,000 Americans have been killed by US police officers.(via thepeoplesrecord)
