Mother Jones is angry at police in the United States, claiming "American police will be responsible for more killings than take place in most developed countries worldwide."
When you break it down to gun killings per 100,000, the United States actually ranks behind Canada, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Ireland, Finland, and the Netherlands:
Also intentionally left out? Homicides not committed by guns per 100,000. If you go to Mother Jones and look closely at their statistics, the first stats represent "total homicides," then it changes to "gun homicides per 100,000." It's almost as if Mother Jones knows that if they include those stats, it would shatter their talk points further.
But why let facts get in the way of some good outrage culture?
