Yes. They do. Here's a pretty comprehensive report on law enforcement shooting. Devastating.
Here's something to think about. If we are, rightfully so, going to raise justifiable hell about this, then to apply daffodils we must also be raising even more hell about other far more serious matters in this same vein.
This article tackles this very issue head-on. And gets flattened to one atom-thickness by the steamroller.

Anyway, we do not see stunning calls to "Burn this bitch down!" when gang members kill each other. Why?
How is one murder different from another?

Heatstroke can kill a person. Heat stroke usually does not kill a person. Most people who get heat stroke get over it.
Melanoma, left untreated, is 100 percent fatal. It can be treated and removed. The person so treated can go on to live for decades.
