Police Killed More Americans In 2014 Than All U.S. Mass Shootings Combined

Although we aren’t allowed to know the actual number of American citizens killed by police each year, a database has been tracking news stories since 2013.

In 2014, at least 1,104 Americans were executed on site by law enforcement. No trial – just violent death. A quick scan of the headlines shows an inordinate amount of shooting deaths. So, the media reports on them, but without the outrage reserved for lone shooters who walk into public places spraying bullets at random people.

Not only do some sources average the deaths out to 3 per day, but also one American every 7.6 hours. That means if you saw this headline before work, and then read the story after you got home from work – two Americans have likely died at the hands of law enforcement in the meantime.

The media supports the agenda to remove gun ownership from law abiding citizens because of conveniently timed and fishy looking mass shootings by deranged males – but not from deranged, gun-wielding males with badges. The ones who may gravitate to such positions, who don’t get screened. Who can simply move to another state or nearby department and restart their law enforcement career after they have killed.

Back to the numbers comparison – how does the amount of Americans murdered by police in 2014 (and on average every day) compare to the amount of Americans killed in all U.S. mass shootings? (A mass shooting is typically one person, who has randomly killed at least 4 people in a public place within 24 hours. Not to be confused with sprees, serial murders or mass genocide)

It’s double!
