. Fatal encounters with police remain high after George Floyd’s death « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Axios – The number of people killed in encounters with police has not fallen despite the uproar over the deaths of George Floyd and Daunte Wright last year, the New York Times reports.

Since Floyd’s death in May 2020, over 1,600 people — or an average of three per day — have been killed by police, the Times reports, citing Mapping Police Violence, a nonprofit that tracks people killed by the police. Black people are also still two and a half to three times as likely as white people to be killed by a police officer.
