Washington Police Kill More People Than Germany

Pasco, Washington Police Have Killed More People Than Germany

The police in Pasco, Washington have killed more people in the past six months than the police in all of the United Kingdom in the past three years and the police in Germany in close to a year.  This is despite the fact that Pasco has 59,000 people and those countries have roughly 80,000,000 people.

I think when you look at something like this you have to go outside of even examining the police, though our country without a doubt struggles with issues of police brutality.  (The article says that at least one of those show was unarmed.)  What is it in our culture that leads to more violence than in other Western countries?

Hat tip to my friend J.R.
