US police shoot almost 1,000 people dead per year, figures show

quote [ Fatal shootings by police are the rare outcomes of the millions of encounters between police officers and the public. Despite the unpredictable events that lead to the shootings, in each of the past four years police nationwide have shot and killed almost the same number of people - nearly 1,000. ]

When you start digging in to the statistics inside this number, it's painful how obvious the race issue is in the USA.
