LOL. Sorry that taking a look at big numbers and broad trends (and my calculation was indeed based on real historical statistics), just to see if anything is interesting, causes you so much heartache. I still find it interesting.

Hopefully the numbers I cited will give you pause before assuming the worst about the US and or cops in the US. Somehow, I'm not so hopeful on that.
I don't "assume the worst", so nothing to worry about here. Thanks for the cites (which don't refute anything I've said, aside from my guess on per-capita guns in the UK).
