As of Armistice Day 2016, 917 people have been killed by US police, according to The Guardian’s ongoing project, The Counted. Bookmarking the site is highly recommended, as it is updated frequently with new data and links detailing the individual cases and circumstances surrounding each death.
More about the database:
The Counted is a project by the Guardian – and you – working to count the number of people killed by police and other law enforcement agencies in the United States throughout 2015 and 2016, to monitor their demographics and to tell the stories of how they died.
The database will combine Guardian reporting with verified crowdsourced information to build a more comprehensive record of such fatalities. The Counted is the most thorough public accounting for deadly use of force in the US, but it will operate as an imperfect work in progress – and will be updated by Guardian reporters and interactive journalists as frequently and as promptly as possible.
