Re: “CSPD officers face possible lawsuit for beating Alzheimer's patient

Colorado Springs—where the PD ignores a 911 call of a man in the street with guns (until someone is lying on the ground bleeding to death from gunshot wounds) but beats the living hell out of an Alzheimer's patient.

Re: “Murray: Outlaw open carry

Everywhere in Europe with the exception of a few small countries—the Czech Republic and Bosnia-Herzegovina—to carry a loaded gun in a public place is a crime. Most of the public space of Europe is a gun-free zone. And the result?

Death from attacks (murder) in developed countries is NOWHERE worse than in the United States—300% of Canada's murder rate, 400% of Australia's murder rate, 450% of the murder rates on Great Britain and in France, 600% of the murder rates in Germany, and so on—not because attacks here are more frequent—they're not—but because guns are so much more deadly than other weapons and in America attackers so frequently use guns. If an attacker uses a gun instead of some other weapon the person or persons under attack are MUCH more likely to die.

Of every three who die from attacks in America two die from gunshot wounds, of four in Canada one only, of fifty on Great Britain three only. Where officers report to the FBI the type of gun after a death from gunshot wounds from an attack nine times of ten it's a handgun. Most Europeans think of guns as something for hunting or sport (target shooting) NOT "self-defense." They do not give everyone access to handguns.

You have only to look at the police. Every American officer has a gun. Last year FIFTY died from gunshot wounds. On ordinary patrol on Great Britain police officers DON'T HAVE GUNS. In 2013 one only died from an attack. Someone ran over him.

If a situation on Great Britain requires officers with guns a police supervisor can call in a team trained in guns but on Great Britain gunfire from officers is rare. Among sixty-four million inhabitants in 2013 officers fired guns in three situations only—and no one died—the year before in one situation only (and no one died). Among eighty million in Germany in 2011 officers fired 85 gunshots only and all but 36 were warning shots.

Death from gunshot wounds from gunfire of officers on Great Britain runs about three a year, in Germany seven a year, in Canada twelve a year, in the United States a THOUSAND a year.

Someone dies from gunshot wounds from an attack in the United States about once an hour, on Great Britain once a week. A year has 52 weeks, 8,760 hours.

About eighteen times as many die from gunshot wounds from gunfire of American POLICE OFFICERS as from gunfire of British murderers.
