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?

ok then lets match it with something that makes sense unlike car accidents. Lets try Apples to Apples! You are between 300-600 times more likely to be killed by a police officer in the united states than any other country in the world.

Cops kill more people here per capita than most countries do in a decade.

Here are some numbers:

Seeing as cops use terrorists as a reason for much of the overreaching they do i think its a fine comparison.
