    Got anything to back that up? Are you seriously alleging that over 4,500 people have been killed by police in the last 10 years?

    Which in and of it self means nothing. It means something happened.

For all we know he fell down and hurt his neck in that manner, which would make it nothing more than an accident. The only thing you could hold the police accountable for might be not calling an ambulance/paramedics in time to prevent the death.
    Well said. There are some weird rules on calling an ambulance too.

    Looks like he was severely injured before he got in the van.

    FWIW, they picked up another individual in route.

    So he could have been injured in a scuffle?

    Spinal injuries are tricky tricky. You have to immobilize to prevent greater injury. If something goes unnoticed...it could be bad.

    He looked pretty immobile and was screaming as they put him in the van. I can't imagine he caused much of a ruckus on the way to jail.

    Getting tackled on pavement by four cops can cause some bad injuries.

    I totally agree with your thoughts on spinal injuries.

    It says here that he was arrested with incidence.

    Maybe the other prisoner caused the injuries? IIRC cops don't ride in the back of the van.

    Maybe some folk believe in limited and constrained government. And being suspected of a crime cannot be considered a death sentence.

    Apparently.

    How many police shootings a year? No one knows - The Washington Post

    Bottom line is there are no good stats because no one is required to report police shootings. But the estimates range from about 400/year (which they know is low because it excludes a bunch of police departments) to over 1,000/year. Here's one effort to count fatal shootings:

    In 2011, he scoured the Internet several times a day every day, compiling a database of every officer-involved shooting he could find. Ultimately, he tracked 1,146 shootings by police officers, 607 of them fatal shootings.
    Here's another effort, more recent - Another (Much Higher) Count Of Homicides By Police | FiveThirtyEight

    But one recent effort stood out for its apparent comprehensiveness: The Killed By Police Facebook page, which aggregates links to news articles on police-related killings and keeps a running tally on the number of victims. The creator of the page does not seek to determine whether police killings are justifiable; each post “merely documents the occurrence of a death.” He told FiveThirtyEight that he was an instructor on nonviolent physical-intervention techniques and that he prefers to remain anonymous.

    Killed by Police had listed more than 1,450 deaths caused by law-enforcement officers since its launch, on May 1, 2013, through Sunday. That works out to about three per day, or 1,100 a year.
    That effort compiles all deaths, and includes a few cases of officers acting outside their duties - e.g. drunk driving after work, deadly crash.

    BTW, here's the link for 2015. Killed By Police - 2015 Total through April 22 is 356.
