Every year police in the United States kill hundreds of people—461 in 2013, according to incomplete FBI statistics based on self-reporting from local law enforcement agencies, and more than 1,000 in 2014 according to killedbypolice.net, which combs through media reports. The fatal shooting in August of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, propelled the issue of police violence and excessive force into the national news cycle which, in turn, also attracted media attention to police killings that otherwise may not have gotten as much notice, such as the death of Eric Garner in New York. But as Ed Krayewski observes, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here are 12 examples of the police using deadly force under questionable circumstances in 2014.
