There have been 500 people shot and killed by police in the U.S. so far in 2015

Police officers in the United States have shot and killed at least 500 people so far in 2015, according to a Washington Post analysis.
The 500th gun death at the hands of police officers came Thursday night in Boulder Creek, Calif., after officers were dispatched to a home on reports of a family fight. Police officials told local media that when they arrived, they encountered a man with two firearms whom they shot and killed.
It was one of four fatal police shootings that occurred on Thursday — the others were in Chicago, Phoenix and Parowan, Utah.
The 500th fatal police shooting comes amid a particularly deadly stretch — at least two people have been shot and killed by police every single day so far this month. At least 31 people were shot and killed by police officers during the first week of July, making it the deadliest such week of the year so far. On Tuesday, officers across the country shot and killed eight people, the most police shootings that have occurred on any single day in 2015.
The number of people shot and killed so far this year tracked by The Posteasily exceeds the figures reported by the FBI for any single year since 1976. The federal data, which officials acknowledge is incomplete, relies on voluntary reporting from just a sliver of the nation’s  more than 13,000 state and local police departments. While the FBI has never recorded more than 460 fatal police shootings in an entire year, The Post identified 463 such shootings in just the first six months of 2015.

  1. America has a serious Homegrown Terrorist Problem masquerading as the Police.
    The U.S. Government are the real Terrorists.
    The U.S. Government is staging all the Terrorist events and are responsible for the Police behaving like murdering Terrorists!

  2. Five hundred human beings murdered by Satanic creatures, and that's but the official figure.
    And what those whom those sons and daughters of Satan rob, rape, exploit?

    Pardon me, your delusion is showing.


    They're not "Satanic creatures" - seeing as such things do not exist nor have ever existed - but sick, perverted people.


    It's the god/satan delusion that's done so much to prevent a fix from being implemented.


    Knock it the fuck off.

  4. The police are out of control. The now regard the people they are supposed to protect and serve and the enemy. Never trust them. There is no gang more dangerous.
