Police Officers Took 1,196 American Lives in 2015

WASHINGTON, DC — As we enter a new year, it is time to reflect on the trail of bloodshed that police left behind in 2015.

A grand total of 1,196 Americans were killed by police.

It is important to note that this number only includes the reported killings.

Most police misconduct goes entirely unreported.

For all anybody knows, the actual number could be anywhere between 2,000-3,000.

At least 27% of the people killed by police were suffering from mental illness, and instead of getting the help they needed, they were exterminated.




The slayings have become so frequent that medical scientists at Harvard have recently announced that police killings ought to be counted as a national public health epidemic.

This also does not include the amount of cops who were reported for sexual misconduct, rape, and child molestation. These latter incidents occur so frequently — on average two or three cases per day, by our own estimates — that it becomes difficult for any one organization to keep track of them all.


The Guardian felt the need to start an interactive map that keeps track of all the (reported) police killings, since intelligence agencies in the US will not do it accurately.

On the other hand, the number of police officers who were killed by gunfire has dropped dramatically — a nearly 15% reduction compared to previous years.

It is therefore puzzling as to why cops and their mainstream media lapdogs continue to insist that there is a “War on Cops” in America.

    In this photo used for the FB post of this article. The officers (at least I hope that is what they are) really do look like some gang of thugs out to thump you for parking in their spot. I’ve met a few folks who claimed they wanted to be a police officer. I only hope that they just didn’t make the cut. But given some of the ‘I felt my life in danger’ claims made these days. I’m sure the bar is pretty low for becoming one.
