The culture that is Germany

According to Germany’s Der Spiegel, German police shot only 85 bullets in all of 2011…As Boing Boing translates, most of those shots weren’t even aimed [at] people: “49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed.”

In some cases the United States police manage to best that number while firing at a single suspect.  The short article is here, the German-language source is here: “Unsere Polizisten sind keine “Rowdys in Uniform”.  Of course not, they are too busy counting.
