  • Ummm... it's so low because there aren't any guns around in Germany?! The probability that someone is carrying a concealed gun in Germany is very very low, so naturally police are less likely to jump to discharging or even drawing their own. That's not a dig at US firearms laws (coz that's none of my fucking business), just a logical explanation I find.

      And if there would be WW3, germany would probably have most guns and artilery in the world... What's wrong with your people. everything seems so strong...

  • One tiny aspect not mentioned in the video: German policemen are typically rather athletic when compared to their US counterparts. It is somewhat easier to catch somebody in a foot chase without using your gun if you weigh less than 400 pounds. And there is always two of them in a police car.

    professionalism, power is nothing without control.

    im happy tazer-guns arent allowed in germany.

    as long as you treat german cops with respect and you be friendly and follow their orders, you wont have no trouble and get respect back. they are very professional. those are my experiences.

    just give them no reason and be nice n friendly, they will let you go

    • @Derek Dean agreed, but this says more to the peoples of Germany, than the police, you need a reason to shoot, and apparently german's are smart-more mature than americans and the like, hence less shotings! cheers! go borussia Dortmund! hail!

  • It's notable how this guy calls all of the people killed by police in the U.S. "criminals" when that's clearly not the case. The police shoot and kill innocent people ALL OF THE TIME.

    Back in the old days, American police were considered "peace officers", because they generally kept the peace. They went around giving directions, assisting old ladies across the street, and rescuing cats out of trees for little girls.

    Nowadays, American police are more akin to an occupy More..

  • It's just that there is soooo much paperwork to fill out if you fire a gun as a policeman in Germany.
    Like for instance: Could you be certain that no innocents would be hurt if your shot missed and if so why, etc....

  • I studied in Germany (stuttgart) and I must say, that the German police are very polite. You can even smoke weed with them :). ...oh man i miss that time.

  • Because in Germany they are disciplined by nature and law abiding citizen. With Sweden, Germany is the most civilised country in the world. Also, you can compare the amount people who died in car accidents with the US while the Autobahn and on some section, you can drive as fast your car can. I'm pretty sure Germany has the lowest ratio.

    I myself go every month in Germany just to reach the max speed of my Audi RS3: 285 KM/H!

  • Funny how the Police in Germany manage to keep the crime rates lower than the ones in America and they do it by killing 100x fewer people. Yet Police in America still think they are doing a good job and need more power. fuckin pigs

    • @travy1121 It isn't the job of the police to keep the crime rates low. That is what society is for. I'm happy paying higher taxes when this means our children get good education and don't start robbing my ass, because they are unemployed and start taking drugs.

    • @aidem
      I dont want to get involved into silly finger pointing but I believe that exactly is the job of the police: to keep the crime rates low
      It might not be on a tactical level but certainly should be the long term strategical goal when planing and managing the ressources available.

      Okay well could you honestly say that you think that is what your higher taxes are going towards? I personally cannot say I feel the same way, especially when in the last 1o years the average pay of police officers in America has risen by 52% yet America's ranking in terms of education of people between the ages of 10-18 has dropped from 4th to 19th.

      Precisely, this is an intelligent and appropriate expectation, not something you can expect from many Americans, especially Americans who are either related to, or are themselves police officers. Police Officers in America usually scored in the bottom 40% on national test. They are some of the dumbest, most biased people in America... Well in my opinion at least and I personally don't feel their behavior, standards, or protocol make them out as anything more than that.

      And, if it isn't the Police's job to keep the crime rates low than whose job is it? I'm pretty sure if a citizen took the law into their own hands they would be labelled a vigilante and arrested for it. E.g Batman.

    • @Northlander it's not about races and skincolors but social background

      in parts of Berlin Turkish residents have formed Ghettos with families which rule over appartement buildings
      our lower homicide rate is attributable to the fewer guns the people own, it's a fact, that you can kill a person quicker with a gun, than with a knife, machete or club

  • Lol, American pigs (*oink-oink*): 85 bullets on one traffic stop where suspect was "uncooperative".

    US has been one of the worst gestapos in the world for a long time now. Highest incarceration rate, 100+ shots at one man is now seen as normal, laws that restrict liberties (Patriot Act, HR347, NDAA, etc).

  • In Germany, also in the Netherlands, there is not a widely spread idea that a gun is THE solution to everything. I think it's not even a matter of the amount of guns in a society as what people who are against liberal gun laws state. It must be a psychological thing.

    Dutch statistics are a bit higher and the tendency is rising. Last year there where 30 shooting incidents by police, 5 deaths and 29 injured by the shooting. In 2010 there were 25 shootings, 23 in 2009.

    Germany has almost five ti More..
