Today's editorial is not meant to be taken as a hard and fast policy, but it's something to seriously consider. Police officers sworn to "serve and protect" kill over 1000 people a year. This number totally eclipses other countries and is entirely unacceptable. While I do think that not all Police officers should carry guns, this is more of a statement against police violence. If you want to seriously ruin your day check out killedbypolice.net and check out the constantly updated list of every person killed by a police officer.
