    As an American, I sure that a lot of these deaths probably involved “suicide by police” and intervention of police during extreme acts of physical violence ie bank robberies, or domestic violence and etc.

    You also just gloss over the fact that America is a country of over 318+ million people vs Britain’s 64 million. I would EXPECT the overall police homicide rate to be far higher than in the UK.
