To Serve And Protect Is Meaningless in United States – 5

Who do they serve? Who do they protect when calling for help is like signing your death warrant?

Gibberish! You might think or say.

According to an article published in the Salt Lake Tribune quoted in the article Police Officers Are Scarier than Gang Members “In the past five years, more people have been killed by police officers than by gang members, suicides and domestic violence combined.”

Yep! The very people who are here to serve and protect commit more murders than gang members. A 13-year old boy in Ferguson, MI explained the epidemic this way “if I have someone chasing me with a knife, and I see a police officer, I would be more afraid of being killed by the police officer than the man chasing me with the knife.”
