America has got to be the only modern country where we just don't know how many people the police kill.

1 and 2 pretty much cover it. The police have a rough job no doubt but the job attracts a lot of people of the wrong type for the job. Then you throw in the blue wall...

To be fair, I don't report the murders I commit either.

It should be well known that police departments are under ZERO obligation to report police related shootings/deaths to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program.

Possibly so but I would think they do have to report it to the state who probably then forwards the info to the FBI.

It's a really sad state of affairs when one political faction in this country wants to support the police so much that they turn a blind eye to the activities of those wearing badges. This faction must be so terrified of (insert bogeyman type here) that they offer free rein to those sworn to uphold the law, even of those law enforcement officials brazenly disregard the lives of those they are sworn to protect. Being a police office is the sort of job I would never want, but as a citizen and tax payer I think it reasonable to expect these folks will not kill people and not make aware citizens and tax payers what the hell they are doing...
