the CDC WONDER Online Database, has a US total of 5,511 deaths by "Legal Intervention" for the years 1999-2013 (3,483 for the 2001-2010 used to generate the report) excluding the subcategory for legal execution.
Seriously though, Why are most cops in the US head shaved? Too look tough or from the sweats of "Steroids"? Or is is both?

I'll echo this. I think (not all) a chunk of our police are roided up dumdums. It seems the roids happens more in some counties than others. I've traveled a bit, and seen cops that look like regular people, then go to some areas where they all look like a bit more like pro-athletes. I think it may very well be that the (seeming) increase in cops raging out of control is linked to increased steroid use.
Another thing is the sheer jacked up foods some people are nomming on. I've personally experienced apathy when eating crap foods over and over again. Maybe some of these heffers are not functioning well upstairs cause they get nothing but empty calories.
As I was going home along the Cowley Road, a police-car on the other side of the street went off, went round Magdalen roundabout, and came after me. The occupant got out and called me over, addressing me as “pal”. He asked me what my name was, where I had come from. He said he was looking for an eighteen-year old boy called Joseph Merrill and asked me if I had seen him. He asked also where I worked and how old I was, and finished by enjoining me to “give him a shout” if I saw the said Joseph. I pointed out that I didn’t know what the boy looked like ( and perhaps I should have asked him how to go about “giving him a shout”). He said the boy was middle height, “like yourself”, eighteen years old, etc., and let me go. If he was really looking for the boy, the later questions seemed to have little point unless he thought I might be him, in which case I was surprised that he didn’t want further identification before I went on my way. The other possibility, which only occurred to me later, was that the boy was non-existent, just an excuse to stop me, which would make the whole conversation much more intelligible.
