Description

A Journal analysis of the latest data from 105 of the country's largest police agencies found more than 550 police killings between 2007 and 2012 were missing from records kept by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or in a few dozen cases, not attributed to the agency involved in the killing. The Journal's tally showed at least 1,800 police killings in those departments, about 45% more than the FBI's tally for justifiable homicides in those jurisdictions. The Journal's reporting shows that the full national scope of the underreporting of justifiable homicides wasn't being quantified, as more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies are asked to provide such stats to the FBI.
