    USA: All 50 states fall short of international standards on police use of lethal force.

    I think that this shows the Policing in the US could and should be better.

    IMO there has to be a reversal of the militarisation of police forces.

    cops happen to be people who also wish to go home. thing MIGHT be different if they were held to the same standards as civilians.

    International, unelected NGOs do not get to determine legal standards in the US. Personally, I don't give a damn what "international law" says.

    That answer is sometimes the problem, if the USA had listened to the International community, the invasion of Iraq in 2003 wouldn't have happened.:(

    There is clearly a problem with Law Enforcement in the USA, IMO listening to advise is always better than, just shouting I'm not listening.
