How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Police Kill Civilians At Much Higher Rate Than Is Reported by Federal Agencies

By Steve Neavling

Police killings are underreported and occur more often than federal agencies have reported, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Between 2007 and 2012, more than 550 homicides by cops were not included in federal statistics.

The Journal examined figures from the nation’s 105 largest police departments to find that at least 1,800 deaths occurred in the six-year timeframe. That’s a 45% increase from the FBI’s tally of 1,242.

The problem, the newspaper reported, is that law enforcement agencies aren’t reporting all of the killings by police officers.

The discovery comes as protests have broken out across the country following the deaths of several black people at the hands of white police officers.
