There Are No Official Statistics On Americans Who Have Been Killed By Police, But That May Change

Following the death of Michael Brown and the events in Ferguson, Missouri, local activists managed to get 200,000 signatures in favor of a reform which would include, as Al Jazeera America reports, “the collection and release of comprehensive data on how many Americans are killed by law enforcement officers each year.”

A database of police shootings, excessive force, misconduct, and arrests as well as an investigation on police discrimination, ending federal grants, and an order to form prohibition on officers using brutality or discrimination are among the other demands that were listed.

The signatures and demands were delivered on Wednesday to the White House, The Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Justice in hopes to see some change.
