An investigation in the United States shows that despite ongoing national scrutiny of police tactics, the number of fatal shootings by officers in 2016 has remained unchanged.
The study conducted by The Washington Post shows that US police officers have killed nine-hundred and fifty seven people until Thursday December 29. The number is almost unchanged from last year when nearly one-thousand were fatally shot by police forces across America. The investigation also says that a disproportionate number of those killed this year were black, and about a quarter involved someone who had a mental illness. Dozens of law enforcement departments across the US vowed reforms since the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, in 2014 which triggered massive protests, mostly violent. However experts believe curbing deadly shootings may take years.
