Doesn't seem to matter who occupies the White House:
 Police fatally shot nearly 1,000 people in the U.S. last year, a grim tally that has persisted despite scrutiny of such deathsPolice shot and killed 987 people in 2017, according to an ongoing Washington Post database project that tracks and details the deaths.
Over three years, The Post has logged 2,945 shooting deaths — with 995 in 2015 and 963 the following year. Experts said they are uncertain why the annual total shows little fluctuation.
While many of the year-to-year patterns remain consistent, the number of unarmed black males killed in 2017 declined from two years ago.

Black Lives Matter will never gain the traction they need until they stop making it about race and about Trump and start uniting all Americans to realize that this country is becoming an authoritarian regime and it was even with their Golden Boy in the White House.  Blacks are disproportionately affected because they come into more contact with cops because those are the neighborhoods patrolled, but any encounter with any cop by a person of any race can lead to murder or assault within seconds, and often does.

That's the truth.  This is truly a bipartisan issue that knows no color boundaries.  It's an offshoot of a government increasingly staffed by elites of both parties that believe they know what's best for us.  They've tried their damndest to demonstrate how untouchable they are (thus they've been rendered apoplectic by Trump's victory).  What they've done is create a country where power is the great divider, thus cops feel justified in exercising theirs with the greatest of prejudice. 
 
Here's another great example of cops shooting first and asking questions later.  Wichita, where cops killed a man recently during a "swatting" prank, sees a 9 year old girl shot in the forehead during a domestic call because the trigger happy prick shot at the family's dog.

Kansas City set a murder rate this year with over 200 murders ( I think 207) Two years ago we were at 150. Murders as a whole, be it cops or the general public were up across the board this year in most major cities.

But yet, 2017 showed the lowest number of pigs killed in the line of duty in 58 years. This includes heart attacks that happened to the fat fucks while waiting at the drive thru at Dunkin' while in uniform. But yet, the unions want you to believe that there is a "War on Cops". Murica has to stop buying into this bullshit that every cocksucker who puts on a magical uniform with a wizard shield is a "hero" who is beyond reproach. These pigs killing your next door neighbor and their dog is almost strictly due to Joe Six Pack not uttering a peep whenever a killing occurs.

different generation, police in the past were less likely to use their guns at all, blame it on the generation, same reason why cops drive like a-holes nowadays, more aggressive people that past decades, still with how many people kill each other in the US with guns no surprise cops are trigger happy, everyone has a gun, not justifying those cases where it is cut and dried cop was out of bounds

how come there's very little or no outrage when 30 people are shot in any US city each night or whatever the total is ,thats the problem but US loves those guns

up here very few police shootings at all, and almost none where it was unjustified, cops aren't pulling their guns on every stop.
