Question

Got a fix for these man-made problems, men?

From the article, a couple points of interest. There are others.
"Police in the United States kill roughly 1,000 people a year. No other rich country comes close. Finnish police fired only six bullets in 2013, fewer than half the number that one Chicago cop put into Laquan McDonald, a black teenager, in 2014 as he was walking away."
"American cops shoot more people than police in other rich countries largely because more people shoot at them. They are 36 times deadlier than German police officers, but also 35 times likelier to be killed on the job."
Figures in Philippines et al. show thousands killed by the authorities; crime goes on.
