This Map Shows the Exact Location of Every Black Person Killed by Cops in 2014 (from AlterNet)

Screenshot (10)

Of the 1,148 people killed by cops [in 2014], 26 percent were black. (That’s double the representation of black folks among the U.S.’s population.) Other figures the website notes:

At least 100 unarmed black people were killed by police in 2014, more than any other race.

Where you live matters. A black person in St. Louis is 5x more likely to be killed by police than a black person in New York City. A black person in Florida is more than 2.5x more likely to be killed by police than a black person in Georgia.

It’s not about crime rates. Despite the fact that Newark and St. Louis have similar crime rates and demographics, police killed 4 black people in St. Louis and zero in Newark in 2014.

  1. North Dakota is where it’s at! LMAOOO! Just playing they just don’t report their incidents. Plus there aren’t any black people up there due to them already killing them all! -_-

  2. unarmed? they had no arms? because if you have arms, you can punch (can be fatal) choke someone to death, or use your hands to try and take an officers weapon. there are big guys out there that have been in prison that could kill you quickly with their bare hands, and that is what the military teaches it’s soldiers to do…kill with your bare hands. how many of these poor black folk were in the process of committing a violent felony? don’t want to know that, do you?
