Cops Have Killed Way More Americans in America than Terrorists Have

Editor’s Note: People from other countries look at this and remark all the time how they cannot believe Americans live in a place (and somehow magically think they are “safe”) where they have such a high probability of being shot by their own police, just by the way. Considering how many stories there are about it, it’s curious how many pets are shot by cops here…?

Police have killed more Americans on U.S. soil since the year 2000 than the Islamist terrorists. At Vox, Anand Katakam created an interactive map with data from Fatal Encounters, a nonprofit working to build a national database of police killings. This database, and the map Vox created, shows that US police have killed at least 5,600 people since the year 2000. That’s many more than have died in terrorist attacks on American soil.

A huge majority of the more than 5,600 deaths on the map are from gunshots, which is hardly surprising given that guns are so deadly compared to other tools used by police. There are also a lot of noticeable fatalities from vehicle crashes, stun guns, and asphyxiations. In some cases, people died from stab wounds, medical emergencies, and what’s called “suicide by cop,” when someone commits suicide by baiting a police officer into using deadly force.

Here’s a full-page view of the interactive map.

    cops are nothing but government paid assassins and thugs, terrorists would be a good classification for them.

  • Frank

    Well, the cops have also killed more Amercians than my 80-year-old grandma. If you’re going to make comparisons…don’t be shy and just reference stats that make your point, include all stats – to be fair and unbiased and avoid a common Liberal tactic to justify their whining. For example: What is the leading cause of intentional death (Homicide) in the United Sates? What demographic are the perpetrators from?
    This way, we can get a better representation of your claim as compared to other killers.
    A “Fun Fact”: The primary tool/weapon used to commit homicide in the United States is a hammer (as reported by the FBI). Yes, a hammer. How many cops do you see that have a hammer on their utility belt? Just say’in.

    • Reverend Draco

      There isn’t an entire insane police state apparatus dedicated to “Hammerism, ” either. If there was, a reasonable comparison could be made.

      How do those jackboots taste, anyway? Do you put ketchup on them, or do you prefer the natural leather flavor?

      • Frank

        Sorry Rev, but you’ve GOT to come up with some new material. You’ve used that line about jackboots way too many times. You’re a broken record, devoid of originality – and your infantile personal slights reveal YOUR OWN cognitive abilities.

        • Reverend Draco

          I use that one because it fits.
          I’m not a newer-is-better worshiper – I know that the tried-and-true has just as much, if not more, to offer.

          I could simply call a spade a spade. . . and say “bootlicker,” if you prefer. Copsucker is also an apt descriptor. As is Badge-worshiper.

          I use the language that I do so that you undereducated Funyuns can understand me – it wouldn’t make a whole bunch of sense to speak to my full potential, as it’d be like trying to explain quantum physics to a baboon. It almost is as it stands. . . but as least I can have a bit of fun in the process.

          Here’s another one I’ve used before. . .

          I hope the local cops have blinkers on their belts. . . or you might end up with a broken nose.

            You belittle the members of this forum and infer that we’re beneath you, yet you continue to seek our company, acknowledgement, and validation. Your condescension is laid on so thick that it becomes insincere and false. You are a fake. Your presence here indicates that your claimed over-educated, illuminati peers have either rejected you or don’t even know you exist. Without the company of your “equals,” you come here, to join the dregs that you claim to despise. Like any bully, you secretly yearn for belonging and acceptance. Your lack of humility and self-awareness leaves you having to wear a false mask to interject yourself into a group and claim acceptance. You can either drop the routine and take a seat at the table like a big person, or we will continue to pity you for the small, sad, scared person that you choose to be.

  • what “terrorists” ? you mean the false flag Hitler style 9/11 etc stuff?

  • Roddy Pfeiffer

    Cops are paid enforcers of the law. In other words, hired thugs.

  • Gil G

    And cows kill way more people than sharks.

    • Reverend Draco

      Stupidity kills more people than anything. . . you might want to start being extra careful.

  • ron17571

    How about more people die in car accidents in one month than terrorist have killed here in years. I don’t worry at all about terrorist.Our own government taking away rights and freedoms? All the time.
