Want to take a guess at how many black people and indigenous people are murdered by police every year in the US? And how many police actually face consequences for doing so? Want to take a guess how many immigrant children are still kept in cages, deprived of even the most basic hygiene and humanity? Did you miss the US Government effectively removing all civil rights protections for transpeople, and pushing to do so for LGBTQ people and women? Want to take a guess how many countries there are in the world were being LGBTQ is a capital offense?

Oh wait, you had that shooting thing there. I guess you forgot about that. Might want to look it up, to refresh your memory.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.
So to get this right you are saying US police all are....

I am perfectly aware there are some dodgy places in the world, but don't try to shift the goal posts
