2016 was a bad year for police brutality, misconduct, and police killings in the U.S. The Washington Post reports that over 950 people were shot and killed by police last year, but Cop Crisis reports over 1100 and also says less than 1% of those cops were indicted for their crimes.
When looking at this police brutality epidemic, we also need to consider the fact that UN experts are extremely concerned about the issue.

To help raise awareness of this ongoing issue, we have compiled a list of some of the top police brutality or clear misconduct cases from 2016. Check out the list below and share with others, especially with those that might not know about or might deny the problem.
People in authority positions need to accept that this is a problem that needs to be addressed. We cannot continue to let police beat and kill people and not even be charged for their crimes.
