As of May 5, 2015, the police in the United States of America have killed 401 people that we know of.
Deaths By Law Enforcement 2015:
Extrapolating those numbers out to an hourly figure and the police have killed someone on average, every 7.48 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. It’s truly a Cop Crisis.
The three youngest are A’donte Washington, Jason C. Hendrix, and Kendre Omari Alston who were all only 16-years-old. The oldest was 87-year-old Lewis Becker. At least four officers have also been shot and killed by other officers.
Meanwhile, the Officer Down Memorial Page is reporting gunfire related deaths of on-duty officers is down 43%.
Law Enforcement Deaths 2015:
These numbers are staggering to the mind. The police state is here, fascism is here. There are NO good cops. For every officer who has killed somebody is an officer keeping his mouth shut about it. That doesn’t make him a good cop. We have a terrible problem in this country where people, just like you and me, who are suppose to be held accountable by other people, just like you and me, run wild. Wars, bank bailouts, greed, death, brutality, it’s insane. This country is going down the ole crapper real fast and people are doing almost nothing about it. NOTHING.
