US law enforcement agencies get increasingly aggressive every year. In March 2015, the American police killed 111 people.
According to AlterNet, since 1900, the entire UK police have killed 52 people.
"Don't bother adjusting for population differences, or poverty, or mental illness, or anything else. The sheer fact that American police kill TWICE as many people per month as police have killed in the modern history of the United Kingdom is sick, preposterous, and alarming," Shaun King, the author of the publication wrote.
The author recalls several incidents, when police officers shot and killed unarmed American citizens, both male and female. For example, in March, "police shot and killed Meagan Hockaday, a 26-year-old mother of three." The list goes on with Nicholas Thomas, an unarmed man, whom police shot and killed on his job at Goodyear in metro Atlanta. Anthony Hill, an unarmed war veteran fighting through mental illness, was shot and killed by police in metro Atlanta. There are hundreds of such other stories, King wrote.
Pravda.Ru reported earlier that Chicago police officers detained Americans at "black sites." The sites are very similar to those the CIA uses worldwide for interrogation and torture of suspected terrorists.
The methods that the Chicago police use during interrogations contradict to the Constitution of the United States and reveal the scale of threat that the police pose to American freedoms and independence, Pravda.Ru reports.
