6. Pointless comparison

Jamaica is a tiny impoverished post-colonial third world country struggling to contain a violent drug trade cynically expanded in 1970's to destabilize the Manley government for its alliance with Cuba and the Soviet bloc. Plus your statistics for 2013 Chicago police killings are wildly inaccurate.
"the number of police-involved shootings fell to a five-year low in 2013. Last year, 42 people were shot by a Chicago police officer."
