«Justifiable Homicides» in United States

Un artículo de The Economist sobre el número de homicidios que ostentan las fuerzas policiales en Estados Unidos, comparado con otros paises

«The FBI counts over 400 “justifiable homicides” by American police officers every year. This number includes only those shot while committing a crime. Reporting such shootings is voluntary, so the true number is surely higher. Even undercounting, America easily outguns other rich countries: in the year to March 2013 police in England and Wales fired weapons three times and killed no one.»


Police killings in 2015 so far:

United States: 458
Germany: 8
Britain: 0
Japan: 0
