Trigger-Happy and Racial Bias: Why rates of police brutality in the US are so much higher than rates in the UK.

Police Brutality in the U.S. is no myth. From Michael Brown to Freddie Gray, Ferguson to Baltimore, these fatal shooting have lead to headline news worldwide. But this reality isn’t the same for their British counterparts. Statistics revealed by Britain’s Home Office show just how uncommon it is for the UK’s police to use guns.
