1. You're not doing anyone any favors...

By comparing apples to oranges, Europe v. U.S.

There are differences between cultures concerning weapons, how the mentally ill are treated, prisons for profit, drugs, racial problems and just about everything else.

Yep, cops make mistakes and people die. Some cops are even successfully prosecuted. Others are cleared of wrong doing, not because they can kill indiscriminately, but because based on individual circumstances it was found they had acted within the law by disinterested parties.

Yep, there are mass shootings every day in this country. Every single day. Nothing is done because in this country money is power and people choose not to get involved. People don't want to get involved then live with the results regardless of what they are.

Bottom line Cenk, you're doing nothing to solve the problem other than fanning the flames. You should be ashamed.

Speaking of flames, have at it....

ps. I guarantee those Eurocops had more than tazers pointed at that guy during that event. It worked out that they only had to use less-than-lethal. Where is your information about US cops using less-than-lethal weapons? Just chose to leave that out, eh?....
