The Washington post reported that the US police is killing more than two people in one day. The Newspaper has done its own survey to disclose the fact, since the federal government lacks detailed statistics of the encounters. The data of such killings are not accurately available with the Federal government, due to the fact that the police are not required to report such killings as per the law.
The News Paper tracked the details of such killings and found that the minorities or the dark people are the majority, in the list of the people being killed. The Newspaper posted in its analysis of this year, that in relative of the total population, the number of Blacks who were killed was three times more than the whites.
The report also observed that the majority of the people killed were carrying lethal weapons, whereas about 16% of the people were killed unarmed. The report clearly states that, more than 385 people were killed this year so far in the United States which mean more than two persons a day, The Times of India reports.
One of the retired Police men said that the police will never try to reduce the number of shootings unless they track the list of the killed accurately. The newspaper also found that many of the killings, stormed violence and strikes.
