Sorry. Back on my High Horse.

"...Just last month, in the 31 days of March, police in the United States killed more people than the UK did in the entire 20th century. In fact, it was twice as many; police in the UK only killed 52 people during that 100 year period..."

It's reported that in China, at 4 and a half times the size of the US, police killed 12 people last year, and that the rate at which police in the US kill people is 70 times (!!!) higher than any first world country.

Are people in the US so different from people living in civilized countries that they deserve to die at the hands of those who are supposed to "protect and serve?"  What happened to the ideals of freedom and liberty?  Or are ideals things that only prior generations cared about?

What's happened to America?
