    NSC Study Shows You are More Likely to Killed By a Cop Than a Terrorist

    After 9/11, the fear of another attack on U.S. soil cleanly supplanted the fear of having one`s penis chopped off by a vengeful lover in the pantheon of irrational American fears.

    While we're constantly being told that another attack is imminent and that radical Islamic fundamentalists are two steps away from establishing a caliphate in Branson, Missouri, just how close are they? How do the odds of dying in a terrorist attack stack up against the odds of dying in other unfortunate situations?

    The following ratios were compiled using data from 2004 National Safety Council Estimates, a report based on data from The National Center for Health Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau. In addition, 2003 mortality data from the Center for Disease Control was used.

    You are 17,600 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack

    You are 12,571 times more likely to die from cancer than from a terrorist attack

    You are 11,000 times more likely to die in an airplane accident than from a terrorist plot involving an airplane

    You are 1048 times more likely to die from a car accident than from a terrorist attack

    You are 404 times more likely to die in a fall than from a terrorist attack

    You are 87 times more likely to drown than die in a terrorist attack

    You are 13 times more likely to die in a railway accident than from a terrorist attack

    You are 12 times more likely to die from accidental suffocation in bed than from a terrorist attack

    You are 9 times more likely to choke to death on your own vomit than die in a terrorist attack

    You are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist

    You are 8 times more likely to die from accidental electrocution than from a terrorist attack

    You are 6 times more likely to die from hot weather than from a terrorist attack

    Yeah, I read that cops have higher per capita spouse assault and murder rates than Hells Angels by a pretty wide margin too.

      They have been becoming a lot more trigger happy in recent years.

      Especially against dogs.

      They're always quick to draw.

      Guess they're starting to realize that shiny badge on their chest isn't bullet proof. And people are getting fed up with a lot the crap they continually try and dish out.

      I don't know. Just sayin'.

        You are most likely to shoot yourself then get killed by a terriorist....tell that to the 911 people.

          What they didn't tell you is that those odds are going down. Couple years from now, that might be a 1 in 3 shot of getting shot.

            I still remember the fake statistics, spouted repetitively, ad nauseum, for decades, about guns in the home makes you being more likely to be murdered. Gun owners most likely to kill family members, etc etc. All those statistics now debunked.

            What are the statistics about dying from agrevation from reading Liberal statistics?

            The line about a Caliphate in Branson Mo. sounds humorous, but let me tell you something. The wife and I used to live just west of Branson, in southern Mo. There was a large Muslim Center in Northern Arkansas, not far away. They were always trying to spread Islam in the area, handing out pamphlets, inviting Christians to visit the Muslim Center to learn more about Islam.

              Oh come on now, the odds are only higher if you somehow "Ask For It".

              Like, waking up in the morning, or walking out your front door, or driving/riding in a car, or riding a bike, or walking somewhere, or breathing... etc, etc.
