"NZ has so far remained outside the American policing asylum. Adjusting for population size, police here take about 37 years to kill as many people as American police kill every year." #QotD


"New Zealand has so far remained outside the American policing asylum. From 1941 to 2015, police in New Zealand shot and killed 29 people. Adjusting for population size, police here take about 37 years to kill as many people as American police kill every year. ... Said [former] Police Commissioner Mike Bush: "... People tend to join the New Zealand police because they want to help people, not shoot them'."
