I’ve had a few requests for the list of people killed by police I attached to a different post.
racismschool has many more links and a comprehensive rundown on their page, including this list of people killed by police JUST THIS YEAR so far.
Every single name listed here is an unarmed Black person killed by police unless otherwise noted.
Here’s a starter story about a small fraction of unarmed young black men shot by police including
- Aaron Campbell
- Alonzo Ashley
- Amadou Diallo
- Ervin Jefferson
- Orlando Barlow
- Oscar Grant
- Ousmane Zongo
- Patrick Dorismond
- Ramarley Graham
- Ronald Madison and James Brissette
- Steven Eugene Washington
- Timothy Stansbury
- Travares McGill
- Victor Steen
- Wendell Allen
And here are a few children shot by police:
Shot by “vigilantes”:
- Treyvon Martin
- Darius Simmons
Chavis Carter was shot in the head while handcuffed in the back of a police car, and his death ruled “a suicide”.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of men, women, and children shot by police.
THIS IS WHAT I FOUND IN TEN MINUTES USING GOOGLE.
Ignorance is no excuse.
