Shock Report: More Americans Killed by Police Since 9/11 than Soldiers Killed in War

By Matt Agorist

In a Memorial Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford praised the 40 million Americans who’ve served in the military since the revolutionary war. He also noted that 5,000 soldiers have been tragically killed in military action beyond US borders since America’s war on terror was launched after 9/11.

Thousands of families grieve daily for their fallen loved ones and the war machine that sent them to an early grave shows no signs of slowing.

These fallen military men and women, we are told, died fighting for our freedom.

The terrorists hate our freedom, George W. Bush famously said after 9/11. And, if this was true, they certainly have little reason to hate us now, as Freedom in America has plummeted since that fateful September day.

For the last 15 years, America has fallen across the board in indices rating the world’s countries by levels of freedom.

Americans are under constant surveillance, our every move under a microscope by government goons, “protecting us” from “terrorists.” We are under the constant threat of violence from the state for possessing a plant, or having a tail light out, or simply walking down the street.

Americans are constantly paranoid of those blue and red lights popping up in the rearview mirror that most always end in extortion and could very well end with a visit to the hospital, being locked in a cage, or worse.

In the Land of the Free, police killed more people in just one month of this year than the United Kingdom has in the entire 20th century.

In the Land of the Free, police kill at more than 70 times the rate of other first world nations.

In the Land of the Free, we are told to “fear the terrorists” but US police kill 58 times more people than all terrorist activity against US civilians since 9-11!

What’s more, while the death of 5,000 soldiers is most assuredly tragic, that number pales in comparison to the number of US citizens killed by police — many of whom are also soldiers.

Prior to May of 2013, there was no independent recording authority on how many citizens were killed by cops. However, the FBI loosely estimated that number to be around 500 citizens annually.

Simple math would show us that since 9/11, at the FBI’s rate, police killed more than 7,000 people. However, that number is even higher now that places like Killed By Police, Cop Crisis, and the Counted exist and detail every public killing by American police.

Using the most recent numbers from 2013 to the present, and remaining conservative by using the FBI’s ‘loosely’ contrived number of 500 per year before then, the death toll reaches a whopping 8,296.

In the Land of the Free, citizens are killed by public servants at nearly twice the rate of soldiers deployed to war. 

But these people are criminals, right? They deserve to be killed, right? Wrong.

While many of the citizens who’ve been killed by police in the last 15 years may have had it coming, all of them deserved due process. Not too mention, many of those killed simply came across the wrong cop while engaging in non-violent victimless ‘crimes’ like ingesting an illegal plant. What’s more, some of these victims are innocent children like 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis of Louisiana.

There is no doubt that criminals exist and present a danger to others. However, when the number of people killed by their own government vastly surpasses the number of people who died fighting for that government in foreign wars — something needs to be said.

Some will say that since the US is much larger in population than the UK, that is why American cops kill more. But this is a farce.

To expose this farce, we can compare the US with communist China.

China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.

Law enforcement in the United States killed 92 times more citizens in the same period.

So why are police in the US so much more likely to kill than all of these other first world countries?

We will not pretend that cops in the US kill 70 times more people than other first world countries for one simple reason. However, part of the multifaceted situation which has led to the trigger-happiness of American cops is their training.

This excessive violence has gotten so bad that American police chiefs are being sent to Scottland to learn steps to change this deadly paradigm. A former hostage negotiator with the Boston police department, Chuck Wexler brought a team of cops across the pond in a last stitch effort to curb killer cops and his story was documented by Sky News.

According to Sky News:

As the two sets of police officers met, Mr Wexler described how if confronted by a suspect holding a rock an American officer would pull out his gun.

“You’re going to kill someone for throwing a rock. That’s what you’re gonna do,” said Mr Wexler.

“How would society over here think about you shooting someone with a rock? They would not accept it.”

The senior American officers, from forces such as the NYPD and LAPD, watched demonstrations at Police Scotland training centres.

Sky News cameras joined them as they went out on patrol in Glasgow, and watched as unarmed police dealt with a variety of potentially violent situations.

What the report showed is that cops in Scotland know how to avoid confrontation. Instead of immediately resorting to deadly violence, the Scottish cop will step back, use protective shields, or move behind a car for protection.

What the report also found is that American police have a knack for verbally escalating situations too.

Sergeant Jim Young trains hundreds of Scottish police recruits every year.

“The American style of policing, it’s very authoritative,” he said.

“There’s a difference of going in, straight up at this level, whereby you’re ordering people, you’re shouting at them. You can’t go anywhere after that.

“But if you start down low you can adjust your communications to suit.”

Basically, what this experience is showing is that American police are aggressive both verbally and physically — and it’s deadly.

The good news is that there are cops out there that know this and they are taking action, like the chiefs going to Scotland, to correct it.

“It’s about time that we step up and this is our chance,” said Mr. Wexler. “It’s a crisis but it’s also our chance to do the right thing.”

Below is this eye-opening video of American cops learning to be less violent. This training cannot happen soon enough as America is already on track to kill another 1,000 citizens in 2016.

    Yeah yeah yeah got the whole killer cop narrative already. But why aren’t you drawing attention to why we have killer cops to start with? When people seem to think they need governmental permission (read: legal) for everything and use power of making laws to manipulate others, you will always have some that are the whacking stick. That is the police. IF police had 95% less laws to enforce and excuses to encounter private citizens AND were held accountable for their actions by their communities, there would be drastically less crime and less police violence.

  • eddysachs

    IMO (I repeat:)…After 9-11 the Police Captains of America were wined & dined on taxpayer paid junkets to Israhell & trained/inculcated by the Mossad to treat Americans just like they treat the Palestinian’s with the escalating violence of pursuing imaginary ‘terrorist’s’ under the edicts of the dual-citizen (Kagan) Khazarian/Ashke’nazi’ Zionists in collusion with imperialistic American 1st families (Bush et al), that helped orchestrate 9-11 with the hijacking of the US Federal Govn’t…. hence the militarized stasi/fascist police state that has engulfed us all as we’re all now under the heels of their boots echoing on the cobblestones.. dressing them in demonic black uniforms & granting them a plethora of military ordinance to the aforementioned Police Captains all over America….so put your horses in the wagon because it’s all been downhill since 9-11.

    • desertspeaks

      you nailed it!

  • littljo

    Police will end up at the wrong door. Kill everyone inside then tell the MSM it’s a tragedy.
    The courts (jewstice system) never hold them accountable – that’s the real tragedy.

    • Doug Stevens

      ……….“To establish dominance it is very important to discharge your fire arm so at least shoot the dog.” ………

  • Arlene Lane

    when they said that everything is in reverse, it is absolutely true, not only that all the good guys are inside, and all the bad guys and serial killers are wearing uniforms.

    • betterboy

      Stupid statement.

  • Arlene Lane

    it is also like the story yesterday, about protecting Donald trump from hitmen, I do not think that there is anything worry about there, they only kill the good guys and the crap always get left behind.

    • desertspeaks

      then hillary will live forever.. lets do the math on bad guys.. how many people did trump allow to be MURDERED in Benghazi.. we’ll wait while you do the math..

      • Pyra Gorgon

        How many people’s lives have been lost to feed Trump’s ego over the years? Trump is a selfish egomaniac. Why do you even think he is a good candidate? Because he opposes that Jezebel- spirited woman Hillary Clinton?

        • desertspeaks

          well lets see the documentation that supports your lie? no one died because of trump.. can’t say that about hillary though, can you!

          • Pyra Gorgon

            How did I lie? Do you actually want to defend the position that Trump IS NOT selfish and an egomaniac? Did I lie when I asked you the question, “Why do you even think he is a good candidate?” Then I offered an answer to that question with a tentative, “because he opposes that Jezebel-spirited woman Hillary Clinton.”

            I would like to get a sign that says HILLARY FOR THE PILLORY though…

          • desertspeaks

            “YOU” stated “How many people’s lives have been lost to feed Trump’s ego over the years?” as though someone has died because of him, that is a lie.

          • Pyra Gorgon

            You assumed die, but there are other ways to lose your life…like everything you worked to get your whole life. Remember back when Trump was making this really big casino on land that just so happened to already have homes and inhabitants on and Trump used his influence and money to displace them. Were you to make my statement to them, do you think they would have lovely things to say about Trump?

            YOU, desertspeaks, need to go back in the WAAAAAAY BACK MACHINE and read, watch old interviews, etc. with “da Donald”. Go back to the 80s and 90s. I think you may be enamored by Trump simply because you lack benefit of a longer memory of what he has done in the past.

          • desertspeaks

            so no deaths,.. I’m not enamored by trump YOU ASSUME so though!
            deaths attributed and connected to killery, are over 100 in this country and beyond estimation in other countries such as Libya, et al.
            Given the choice between the two, i choose the one without a trail of death and carnage!

          • jwclark

            “The Waaaaay Back Machine.” I like that. May I plagiarize you if I find occasion?
            The whole nation could use a good dose of that “Waaaay Back Machind.” When an Indian boy asked his Grandfather, “How long ago was that Grandfather,” the old man answered, “Oh it was long long ago–before we had pickups.” I can’t think about that without laughing.
            With Obama they had nothing to remember and thought nothing of it; he just showed up on the stage like a rabbit in a magic trick. And they thought, “He is a black man and will understand our suffering. He will save the Republic!”
            Now we have Trump who has a whole s*** loads of nasty history and they think he will suddenly, perhaps with the same sort of magic, become a good man and save a Republic that heretofore he only wanted to exploit. Welllllllll, it’s possible, I guess.
            And yet, an individual might change, if he suffered enough to know that there was no other way except death. But in general people don’t change. That is silly. They only make adjustments. Indeed, they say that Paul changed because of something that happened to him “on the road to Damascus, but, to my mind, there is much in the Epistles of Paul that is straight from the same old Zelot. And Trump is no Paul.

            My father said that Obama is a “post turtle”. You know…when you see a turtle balanced on top of a fence post, you know 3 things:
            1. He didn’t get there himself,
            2. He isn’t there because he can do any good,
            3. His only purpose is to get you to ask why someone would balance a turtle on a post.

            Maybe all the politicians have been post turtles for some time.

          • jwclark

            Only recently I heard this term, Post Turtle, I think from Jim Marrs, a Texan of course. Thanks for the reminder. JWC
            P.S. I was relieved to find out that you have a “father.” I was afraid that you had come straight from the Mind of God. Also, though I might be wrong, the “Post Turtle” lesson indicates humble origins. Along those lines, many think of me as “arrogant.” If they knew my origins they would add the word “upstart” to that accusation. The irony that those who are offended at my speech, peppered with the language of high ideals, don’t see is that I was called, in part, to prove that high philosophy is open to all who want to know, and from all levels of society. If Abner and Daisy May want to know, all they have to do is find a library–though, admittedly, that would not have worked for me if I had not found someone to guide (and chide) me. But sadly one cannot find such a guide unless Heaven is on your side and brings you to one.

            We, my bumpkin classmates and I, had a beautiful teacher brought to us in the 7th grade. He turned us into a joyous learning machine. Naturally they fired him at the end of the year. I went to see him once to thank him and at that time he had just quit teaching. Last I heard he was a hermit living alone in a hotel room in Seattle and would see and talk with no one. He was a beautiful and loving boy and they ruined him. So, let that be a lesson to you if you ever get discouraged. Just say ‘no, not me,” and as my mentor used to repeat like the times tables, “keep on keeping on”–perseverance being fundamental as Blake and many others said: “If the fool would only persist in his folly he would become wise.”

            Again, thanks for the post turtle reminder. JWC

    There are multiple problems. Firstly, cops that break the law need to be persecuted and severely because they are in a position of power. Next, those throwing the rock should be shot for being trouble makers. Who thinks they can throw a rock at police and be ok with that? Is the cop supposed to run away? How stupid. If I was a cop I would not let crazy people attack me. What if he hits you with the rock and then takes your gun and shoots you and others? All corruption needs to be dealt with severely. Allowing those who do bad things to get away with it will just breed more trouble makers.

    • sotiredoflies13

      What if? So you think anyone who throws a rock should be shot, and that is ok? How about maybe just cut the rock throwers arm off, but only for 1st time offenders?

      • betterboy

        I meant to say with rubber bullets, not killed. If you go to Singapore you will not see any grafitti because they will severely cane you for doing so.

  • Paul Robinson

    Maybe the scum in the inner cities need to stop committing crimes. Then it is possible that they won’t be shot dead quite so often. Really, how many of the people shot by police were not involved in committing some type of crime and then resisting arrest afterwards?

    • izzyizzo

      What isn’t a crime these days?

    • sotiredoflies13

      you mean like Tamir Rice in the Cleveland Park, what was he, a 13 yr. old boy with a toy gun in pants, who was shot within 2 seconds of police cruiser arriving?? SHOT DEAD! Many more like this if one reads.

  • Sn SM

    “Allowing those who do bad things to get away with it will just breed more trouble makers.”

    We can start with LEO’s….and thats ALL of them…ever seen on cop cuff another…nope.

  • carnac123

    Pure Bull! This is the meme of the Obama administration and his attack on Police to help his set of criminal blacks he has unleashed on society. Police are not killing ‘everybody”. They are trying to keep the people safe under impossible conditions because the national government is on the side of black criminals and black revolutionaries.

  • Drew Smith

    Since 2001, there have been approximately 225,000 murders, as in homicides committed everyday Americans against other everyday Americans, in the U.S. So you may want to conduct an in-depth analysis of human nature before you continue using biased and partial statistics to make dumb people (i.e. most of the people in this forum) buy off on your narrative that people are being slaughtered by a blood-thirsty, tyrannical police force…
