What are your chances?

I don't have any statistics to prove it, but I'd bet most people have a greater chance of being killed by cops than by freelance thugs-- as long as you do your best to avoid sketchy people, places, or activities.

What do you think?

  1. Cops are 1/5th of 1% of the population but commit 6% of all homicides.

    I'd bet that if the occupations of the killers in the other 94% of homicides were tracked, no single one would be as high as 6%.

    1. I'll bet you'd be right. (Even if you counted "mafia hit man" as an occupation.)

      Of course, homicide doesn't mean murder-- a self-defense killing is still a homicide. Do they even tally ethically correct killings vs murders where cops are concerned? I'll bet they don't.
