United States Police has killed 1000 persons in 2015 alone

WASHINGTON: US law-enforcement officials have been under heavy criticism with many people disapproving their methods. And rightfully so, considering that the number of people killed by police in the United States in 2015 reached 1,000 in November, according to the Guardian. To counter this grave problem, police officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD) traveled to Scotland’s law-enforcement training college at Tulliallan in the Perthshire County. The police in the United States needs to learn how to handle edgy situations involving knives, rocks and other weapons without the use of deadly force, Wexler said. Assistant-chief constable Bernard Higgins said that “We train our officers to act proportionately and use only the minimum amount of force necessary. We do that from the moment they come into the organisation.” Tactics used by the Scottish police work well. Unlike trigger-happy US cops, who already killed over 1,000 people in 2015 alone, Scottish police shot only two people over the last 10 years.(Washington Post)
