Report-the-vast-majority-of-people-killed-by-police-in-2017-were-armed/ The Post gathered data on officer-involved shootings in the U.S. since 2015, using police and media reports to verify authenticity. The paper has logged 2,945 shootings since the program began. The 987 total in 2017 mirrors the 2016 total of 963, and the number of those killed while armed with guns or knives, 735, remained virtually identical to the 2016 total of 734.
Oh, shit! the numbers were compiled by the Washington Post, sell outs, right wing bastards.
