Thank you for keeping up with this data / information.   This critical information can certainly get lost in all the distractions that are part of the current WH regime plan to keep most people uninformed.

.....But aren't the police supposed to protect and serve?  Or did they not get that memo?

723+ Killed by Police Already in 2018 - A Record Year

Fatal Force - Already, over 723 people have been shot and killed by police so far in 2018.  Unfortunately, the pace has NOT slowed down, in fact, last year there were far more police killings than the prior year.  Maybe it's the effect of a President who couldn't care any less about human rights, due process or real justice.  Still, over three (3) citizens are killed by the police each day.

The greatest country in the history of the world should be able to, and must, do better!

 

We should be supporting body camera's on all law enforcement personnel while engaging a "suspect".  We must demand more training on dealing with the mentally ill and de-escalating potentially violent situations.  Shooting a suspect in the back should not be tolerated.  Shooting someone because, "I thought they had a weapon" should not be an acceptable excuse.  "Fearing for one's life" while 3 or more law enforcement officers have their guns trained on an unarmed, or lightly armed (knife, stick, rock, Bible) suspect should not be tolerated.

 

Most agree that if a suspect is shooting at law enforcement personnel or others, it's reasonable to shoot the suspect, but in far too many cases, "shooting first and asking questions later" is not warranted or appropriate in a civilized society.  Getting the suspect in front of a judge must be a higher priority.
