You know, millions and millions of youth/teens of both colors arrive at adulthood having never been shot by police. Yet somehow assholes with violent criminal records don't make it. I really don't give a shit and it is probably a good thing they are weeded out of society as early as possible.

With the current environment you really have to TRY HARD to get a cop to shoot you, with very few exceptions where the cop is just afraid and incompetent.

I thought it was Birmingham in the UK at first and got a surprise. Birmingham, Alabama, is somewhat less surprising. American cops seem to be lacking in trigger discipline.

I'd say the level of organized crime in the US plays a role in It as well.

Wasn't Birmingham named the gun crime capital of Britain?

Lemme Googs for that...

Oh pardon me "For The Second Year In A Row..."

But don't worry because "But the worrying figures does NOT include the spiralling number of shooting incidents which have brought terror to parts of the city since the summer ..."

That's a mug shot of a black man. Now, unless the definition of what white is has radically changed, I think that's the wrong link.

I think there is a conspiracy amongst the police to get people to stop calling them for domestics by killing loved ones instead of assisting anyone at all.

I wonder if we will get real facts on this or merely the official police report.
