[quote]It’s just not true that we can’t make anything here anymore; we’ve just chosen not to do it.[/quote] Nobody with a brain thinks we [b]can’t[/b] make anything here. It’s just that it costs more. For companies to manufacture everything domestically, one of two things has to happen. Either a) p...

re: Death by cop - Ryan Whitaker, PHX PD - lostinbr
[quote]And even if you include all people killed by cops, it’s still a lower death rate than cops who are killed. Meaning 48 out of 700k is still a higher rate than the reverse: cops killing others.
