A.) They don't even have guns, and B.) I wouldn't go to Europe to learn about tolerance of other races.

British cops are just as bad. It's just that you don't hear about that as often.

British cops are spineless bastards, and the cop in question would still be waiting for back-up now if it'd happened in England.

I don't think they are any less racist or anything. But if you look at the statistics, they seem to be able to handle situations better. There are tons of videos where machete or knife wielding people are brought down unhurt. Here they shoot people 50 yards away if they are holding a knife.

A total of 111 people were killed by police in the United States in March of 2015. Since 1900, in the entire United Kingdom, 52 people have been killed by police.

Again. They don't have guns in England. You can't shoot someone without a gun.

That's kind of my point. They seem to be able to resolve situations without relying on shooting people.

And before anyone says anything, I know cops in America face a far more violent and heavily armed populace.

solution: import british police to american ghettos

after all, this is supposed to be the melting pot.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
and be sure to send plenty of unarmed british police thx

No no I'm saying they are just as racist/violent it's just that instead of shooting someone they'd probably just beat them. Power trips are anywhere, oceans don't stop that.

Not true. If we drown this officer in the ocean, problem solved.
