Give me an example of cops getting killed because of hesitation to shoot? 42 officers died by gunfire in 2013. Meanwhile, it is estimated that cops kill just over 1000 civilians a year of which about 400 are justified.
Cops are cowards who shoot to kill when their lives are not in danger as demonstrated by the statistics. 42 police officer deaths by gunfire vs about 600 civilians needlessly killed by cops.
First, research "OODA loop". This will help explain some of what you are about to see.
And another. Same issue: OODA loop.
And if you want to know why cops approach every call and traffic stop as if somebody is going to try and kill them....well, poo like this

This kid was just ignorant. At no point did the cop escalate the situation and he was pretty patient. And then this happens.
Also, your numbers need sourcing and even if they are even close to accurate (pssst...they're not, since a quick google shows me several different sets of numbers collected), a lot of it can be explained by cops being better shots, having better/more training, and not blindly firing while fleeing. Your use of "shoot to kill" is nonsensical. How else are you supposed to shoot? Any firing of a cop's service weapon is use of deadly force, whether it hits target or not. If you shoot, you are trained to shoot to kill, since (if you're shooting and all) the suspect is clearly putting yourself or a third party at risk of death or serious bodily injury or is attempting to flee by means of use of a deadly weapon. No weapons training in law enforcement teaches "shoot to wound". If you are shooting, then you are shooting to hit the target until the threat is no longer a threat.
But you're right bro. Cops are just bullies who shoot first and ask questions later.
