Study: Cops Kill More People Than Gangbangers or Drug Dealers; More Details Emerge
A study of homicides in Utah has revealed a startling fact, cops kill more people than drug dealers or gang members or child abuse.
From 2010 through October of this year, cops in Utah have killed 45 people. Out of every demographic studied, the thing more likely to result in a homicide is domestic violence. It will come as no surprise to readers that all but one of the shootings was deemed justified after the police investigated themselves. What happened to the case that was deemed unjustified?
A District Attorney charged the shooter only to have Judge L.A. Dever toss out the charge because a state witness declared the cop could have “assumed” Danielle Willard was trying to kill him. A jury never got to hear the case. The judge retired shortly thereafter, and the Fraternal Order of Police has waged a war against the one DA that dared to charge a member of the thin blue line.
In Utah, there’s a website that allows judges to be rated. Leon Anthony Dever has a 3.6 out of 10. The only positive ratings are from government officials and prosecutors. Some highlights from the reviews include:
“I have never appeared before a more incompetent judge in Utah, Nevada, or California. He was never prepared for hearings; did not remember his own rulings; made factual decisions without reviewing any evidence; and showed complete disrespect and bias in his rulings.”
“His staff gave the alleged stalker the victims address, and he declared it contemptuous to contact the police regarding harrassment or contact between the parties on a stalking injunction.”
Given that officers are only supposed to use lethal force in defense of life, it stands to reason that Utah cops are being killed at an alarming rate. They aren’t. In fact, in the same time period only 8 Utah cops have been killed, and that’s if you include car accidents and K9s. In situations that actually involve force cops are killing at a rate of 9:1.
