I'm not through them all yet, but judging from the links I've followed so far, it seems to me that we wouldn't be having this issue if people didn't point guns or fire at officers or other people.

I think you should be grateful you live in a country where the police are as good as they actually are. Where you have the freedoms you have. The problem with people like you and so many other anti-police or anti-wealth people is they are so spoiled rotten and greedy and selfish that they can't see the freedoms and luxuries they live in while others in the world would beg and steal to get what we have. Make no mistake - on a global scheme, you are the 1%. The fact that you have the freedom to complain about your government is a luxury most don't have.
Jon Burge is a former Chicago Police Department detective who oversaw the torture of hundreds of Black men resulting in false confessions between 1972 and 1991. Burge would burn suspects with radiators and cigarettes, and electrocute their testicles. Although Burge was protected by the statute of limitations for his crimes, he was convicted for lying about the torture in January of this year.
