Police are killing even more people than FBI figures show, as official tally misses HUNDREDS of fatal shootings 

  • More than 550 killings by police not included in FBI figures between 2007 and 2012
  • Analysis of 105 police departments shows there were 1,800 such deaths over the five-year period
  • But this was 45 per cent more than FBI's figure for those departments  

Police across America are killing more people than FBI statistics show, it has been revealed today.

An official tally misses hundreds of fatal shootings by law-enforcement officers between 2007 and 2012

More than 550 killings by police were not reported to the FBI over the five-year period, according to fresh analysis.

It comes amid calls for greater transparency over such killings after Michael Brown was shot dead by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, in August.

The Wall Street Journal asked for the internal records on fatal shootings by police from America’s 110 biggest police departments and received figures from 105 of them.

The newspaper says it counted up 1,800 such killings from the figures supplied between 2007 and 2012.
