Why do U.S. police prefer to use gun?

21/06/2016
The rate of fatal shootings by US police is 18 times higher than one of Danish police and 100 times higher than Finnish police.
Jason Van Dyke, a police officer, was accused of the first degree murder on November 11 2015 and the victim was Lanquan McDonald. In the video announced by police, Van Dyke had shot Lanquan Mc Donald 16 bullets. The case of Van Dyke is an evidence of fatal using weapons of U.S. police. Statistics show that US police kill some people per day, which is higher than the rate of European police.
Such huge difference cannot be explained by simple words, but the culture of being able to use gun in the US is clearly a crucial reason. Different from European countries, at almost states in the US, people can easily buy gun for self-defense and carry gun with them.
Having gun illegally is not difficult in the US. Approximately 57% of the victims, who was killed in 2015, are said to be armed with model or real gun.
 US police are armed with guns. The specter of gun violence makes them easier to identify false or exaggerate the danger coming from the enemy side. This makes US police more dangerous and always be ready to pull the trigger. Moreover, it also stimulates the “bravery” and aggressiveness in US police’s thought. American, who are armed with simple weapons such as knife or even bare hands, are also easily be killed by US police.
According to a research announced by Fatalencounters and Washington Post, US police had shot death more than 575 people, who were holding knife and other weapon since 2013. In the first 5 months of 2015, US police had shot death 385 people, and half of them were Africa-American.
The abuse of using weapons of law enforcement officers in US happens too often, creating a wave of protests against the dictatorship of US police.
To be immune from prosecution
Despite of killing a lot of people, among those there were a lot of innocent people, US police seem to be immune from prosecution. Recently, the scandal in Baltimore is one of very few cases in which a police officer was put on trial in a court in last July.
According to Rossiya Segodnya, a Russian news agency, racism is also a strong impact on the US political policies and commercial activities. In addition, individualism and the lack of Government management are factors that make white people and law makers usually support acts of violence and aggression of the police and unwilling to support crimes and poor people.
US police are localized.
Each district, county in 15.500 districts and counties in the US has responsibility to choose candidates, impose disciplines and train staffs when they equipp them with new weapons like Taser electric gun. Every county may implement this very bad. The lack of budget in some locals also makes the problem worst.
More a quarter of the victims are often killed in towns with less than 25.000 citizens, even though there are only 17% American live in these towns.
In the US, the Supreme Court has allowed lethal use of force since 1989, in term of the police officers feel properly the incoming danger. There are 38 states have prescribed the use of lethal force. /.
