Terrorist, a person who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims.

I'd say they can be one and the same.

Why not just define terrorism?

Terrorisim: the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal

Terrorisim... is that like a terrorism simulator or something?

Why are the police allowed to be Judge Dredd. I honestly don't care what color the police officer is, or what color the person being abused is. The police in these country are the type who shoot first and ask questions latter. We need actual police reform. If a bad gun comes into my house, his ass gets a bullet. If the cops wrongfully raid my house while I'm asleep, I end up like that 107 year old.

Police kill a man raiding the wrong house.

Police shoot man who called them.

Police shoot dog at the wrong house.

Police shoot a 107 year old.

Police rape girl

Unarmed white man shot by police

Police raid Mayor's house and shoot his two dogs.

I agree its probably only 20% or less in which racism is a motivator. Then by racializing it, the media created BLM which is calling for killing police. I want to reform the police system not burn it down. Instead of reform though a lot of people are looking at the BLM chanting death to the police, and deciding that the police brutality is acceptable.

Thus the media coverage there is no real reform for the police, people have begun believing that police brutality is a necessary evil, and we now have the BLM burning down stores, killing, looting and just causing general mayhem.

A US Citizen is 250 times more likely to die from a fall then be killed by a police officer.

New info: A citizen is 34% more likely to die from eating processed meat then being killed by a police officer.

So your view is police killing citizens is within the allowable tolerance levels?

I don't think that is what he was saying at all. He was just giving a reference point. Neither falls or terrorism or rattle snake bites are relevant to the problem of some cops being likely to shoot people.

You do realize that this number isn't referring to police just shooting random people, right? Violent criminals that attack police are still citizens.

If the situation calls for it them I don't see an issue. Pull a gun on a cop and you kinda deserve to get shot.

I know there are some bad shoots and that's going to happen. Those cops should be charged just like any other criminal

If 100,000 citizens shoot at police officers then 100,000 citizens getting shot isn't a problem.

Why the hell are we even counting those events as part of a problem?

Walter Scott was murdered. Michael Brown wasn't.

Typical tales of thuggery ending badly:

"A man holding hostages at gunpoint in a diner was shot as law enforcement officers freed the hostages"

"A man opened fire in Studio City, when police arrived they took cover behind their patrol vehicles, the man raised his gun at the police and police opened fire, killing the man"

"Officers responded to reports of criminal threats and a drive-by shooting. Officers began to pursue a specifically identified suspect, who took off in a vehicle, firing at officers during the pursuit. Officers fired back, killing Garza. No officers were injured; 11 fired their weapons"

Oh, the injustice.

Sad truth is, I don't have any friends who have been killed by processed meat. Wish I could say the same about the cops.

Cops go through a process that weeds out the smarter ones, and cops are also pigs.

I'm pretty sure they are indeed processed meat.

Take a different metric then. Car accidents for example. The point that TheDude2 is making is that a comparison only works if you use something that matches well. if we were to stick to the cops/terrorists situation I wonder how the survival rates match up after direct interaction with them while (for lack of a better term) on the job, how many people have survived direct encounters with the cops vs direct encounters with terrorists?

Context, my friend. All this bullshit we are force fed about terrorism and scary men, when the irony is we are far more likely to be terrorized at home by those who supposedly serve and protect.

It's funny because the american government is backing both. Do the terrorist just need more funding to even the playing field?

Well, if they supported only one side the fight would be over, and nobody in government wants that.

This is stupid. So basically your chances of being killed by a terrorist are .00001

While the chances of a cop killin you are .00058

Hahaha I find it so entertaining how the racists try and twist the subject to bring in their agendas on every non-race related story in here.

"Cops are worse than those brown terrorists? WELL WHAT ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE EH?!! DON'T FORGET ABOUT THEM!!"

So desperate to push that "whites are the best" agenda :')

And what are the odds that a US Citizen will be killed by an invading army? It is so very low.

So let's get rid of the cops and the military and everything will be roses!

(FYI, Idiots. That was sarcasm.)
