How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Deadly Police Shootings Reach Nearly 400 Through May of This Year

Police killed at least 385 people nationwide during the first five months of the year, far more than the rate tallied by the FBI, the Washington Post has found.

The tally shows that more than two people are killed on average a day, a rate that is more than twice the one tallied by the federal government over the past decade.

“These shootings are grossly under­reported,” said Jim Bueermann, a former police chief and president of the Washington-based Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement. “We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don’t begin to accurately track this information.”

Because of rising tension between police and African Americans, the Post is detailing every use of deadly force by police.

In the first five months of the year, about half of the victims were white. When adjusting for population, black people were killed at rates three times  that of white people or other minorities.
