How many innocent people are killed by police each year?
Number of officers killed: http://www.nleomf.org/facts/officer-fatalities-data/causes.html.Number of civilians killed by officers in the process of an arrest: http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/index.cfm?ty=tp&tid=82.Number of bystanders and not-charged persons: 2,002 from period 2002-2005 for total, of which 9% are innocent bystanders, most of which are killed by perp and some by stray cop bullets.
To many to count sadly.
What? I never knew that Police were killing innocent people :(
Too many. Even if its 1 it's still too many.
I wish it were none. :'(
I wonder how many innocent people would be killed if we did have the police .
So we should just do away with police huh? It's not a perfect system. But it's the better than the alternative. They put their necks on the line every day. Think of what it would be like without them.
Sadly too many. Take caution when being pulled over for traffic ticket
The police kill about ten times as many people as police are killed by people. Very reminiscent of the Sheriff of Nottingham.
