License to kill

Independent Institute
by Anthony Gregory


No one knows how many times police shoot and kill Americans every year. Most estimates put the number at a few hundred a year, but we don t know the details, including how many of these killed people presented a real threat to anyone. The U.S. government does not do body counts, as it admitted during the Iraq war. And the same appears to be true in domestic policing, where law enforcement has become comparably brutal to the armed forces overseas, including in what has become standard operating procedure in the hundred SWAT raids performed every day across this country, the vast majority of which are launched to serve warrants to people accused of non-violent offenses. Three news stories in the first couple weeks of this new year remind us of the unsettling culture encouraged in modern policing.
