South Carolina law enforcement officers have shot hundreds of people over the last 10 years. One agency, the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, has pulled the trigger nearly twice as many times as any other. In a six-month investigation, The Greenville News reviewed 10 years of statewide shooting data and dozens of case files. Findings showed officers are routinely cleared of wrongdoing, blacks are shot more often than whites, some officers fail to use their body cameras and others wait days or weeks to give an account of what happened. Oftentimes, record-keeping is lacking, training is built on false perceptions of violence and some shootings are never reported.
