A total of 545 people have lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement officers in the United States during the first five months of 2024, according to Report, which cites mappingpoliceviolence.us.

Out of the 153 days in the reported period, only 9 days passed without a police-involved killing.

In 2023, the total number of victims reached 1,247, with 27% being African American.

Perhaps most concerning is the apparent lack of accountability. In an overwhelming 98.1% of cases, officers involved in these killings faced no charges.
