Take some time to follow the 2014 links and numbers as well.
"This is an incomplete list that may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with entries that are reliably sourced.This is a list of people killed by nonmilitary law enforcement officers occurring before 2009, whether in the line of duty or not, and regardless of reason or method. Inclusion in the list implies neither wrongdoing nor justification on the part of the person killed or the officer involved. The listing merely documents the occurrence of a death. Killings are arranged by date of incident which caused death. Different death dates are, if possible, noted in the description.
The lists below are incomplete, as the annual average number of justifiable homicides committed by law enforcement alone is estimated to be near 400.
For lists of killings from other years, see List of killings by law enforcement officers in the United States."
