    I'm in a "debate." The stats out there are idiotically complex and incomplete. Does anyone know where I can find the simple answer to the question;

    How many people where shot by police (in any recent year)?
    What was the breakdown of their race and ethnicity?

    The FBI UCR reports does not contain this information that I can see!

    Thanks.

    The FBI tracks these statistics. It must be somewhere on the site because I keep seeing the citations

    I heard on Fox last night that last year 9 unarmed blacks were killed by police and 19 unarmed whites were killed by them. I can't verify though.

    I've been looking in the UCR. There are about 80 tables I've been through, none with the information I'm seeking.

    That's the stats I'm looking to verify! Can't find it anywhere.

    There was a Harvard/Yale/some prominent university study published a year or so back that detailed the exact info for which you are looking. Let me go look.

    The particular stat you mentioned is in 2019, I believe.



    also, a fun fact: more than 80 percent of suspects shot by police were shot during a chase or a fight.

    Soooooo, don’t run from the cops, and don’t fight the cops, and your chances of being shot go way down!

    I have looked at the stats many times. It's always more white people shot than black. You'd think by all the hell raised it was hundreds of times, it is not. Given the crime rates among the races it is obscure to say the least.

    I understand the Washington Compost has the stats.

    pay them 1 dollar for the basic subscription, download it all, and cancel.


    ETA: WaPo is a bit notorious for giving away all their overblown front page headlines, but putting all of the real, actual, interesting journalism behind paywalls.

    This data is worth paying for. I can’t imagine how many man hours they spent compiling it.

    The fact that I just used the term “man hours” pisses them off. Hehehehe.......

    “Unarmed” means behind the wheel of a one ton missile, holding a baseball bat or crowbar, or all manners of mayhem...
