12. You said the numbers always had to divide by population

Now you are changing your tune.

You advise precision for others but state your case imprecisely.

Perhaps you could find some equation to correlate the story I posted before with this one.

German Police Used Only 85 Bullets Against People in 2011

According to Germany's Der Spiegel, German police shot only 85 bullets in all of 2011, a stark reminder that not every country is as gun-crazy as the U.S. of A. As Boing Boing translates, most of those shots weren't even aimed anyone: "49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed."


Evidently German police are horribly trained, they fired more warning shots than killing ones.
