Title (Dublin Core)

Police in the U. S. killed three people per day in 2019, for a total of nearly 1,100 deaths

Description (Dublin Core)

Police in the U. S. killed three people per day in 2019, for a total of nearly 1,100 deaths. Those numbers are far higher than in other western countries. In England and Wales, three people were shot and killed by police last year. Roughly as many people were killed over the past decade in those countries as were killed by police in the U.S. in an average week (19).

Despite the large number of police killings every year, police are almost never charged for excessive force. Between 2013 and 2019, 99% of killings resulted in no charges, according to Mapping Police Violence.
