Death and injury by Law Enforcement

In the U.S. during a given year, an estimated 1 million civilians experience police threat of or use of force resulting in a conservative estimate of 80,000 non-fatal injuries requiring hospital treatment and 600-1000 deaths.  Both white Hispanics and Black/African Americans are twice as likely to experience threat of or use of force during police-initiated contact (Bureau of Justice Statistics). Based on CDC data, Black/African Americans are more than twice as likely to be killed and almost 5-times more likely to suffer an injury requiring medical care at a hospital compared to white non-Hispanics.
