Well I suppose when you get to define what left wing politics is, one can easily define an extremist left wing killer as not actually left wing. I could do the same with right wing killers if I get to define what right wing is.

Right wing politics are generally very pro-law and order: it's against the law to kill so actually, what the ADL considers a right wing killing might not actually be right wing.


If we are calling law and order right wing, should we include killings by police officers in the right wing murder statistics? 

Not all. Some police uses of deadly force are perfectly justified thus not murder. And when discussing death statistics, we should include the caveat that police are employed to sometimes go into potentially-dangerous situations. Of course the occurrence of death is going to be higher in their arena.
