US POLICE KILL AT A RATE OF MORETHANH 3 PERSON A DAY?


Washington, USA – As of February 15, only a month and a half into 2015, there has been at least 136 individuals killed by police in the United States since the first of the year.
The frighteningly high number averages out to three killed per day, or someone killed every eight hours.   
While there is no government-run database, Killed By Police has taken it upon themselves to keep track, and are doing a fantastic job thus far.
The federal government must rely on partial data because the country’s 17,000 or so state and local police agencies are not required to report such killings.
The newspaper is tracking the deaths as a national debate rages over police use of deadly force, especially in black and other minority communities.
The Post found that relative to the overall population, blacks were killed at three times the rate of other minorities or whites in the police killings it analyzed this year.
The report noted that most of the people killed were armed with potentially lethal objects — mainly guns, but also knives and other items.
