30681 Behind the Numbers: Exploring Research on Police Killings   NEW!

Michael Brown, Jamar Clark, Philandro Castile, Laquan McDonald, Tamir Rice, and George Floyd represent just a few of the nearly 1,000 American citizens killed by police each year. With victims disproportionately African American, many see this as a national civil rights crisis. Go behind the headlines to explore the body of research about the victims, the circumstances that lead to their deaths, and the officers involved. We’ll ask: Do crime rates, gun ownership, and police policies explain the use of lethal force? Who gets held accountable and how? What does research show about our ability to reform police departments?
