500 Innocent Americans Killed by Cops Each Year

“Knock and announce” police raids are on the rise. They are estimated to occur as many as 40 – 50,000 per year.  Back in the 1970s, military-style police raids used to be a rare event, occurring only a few hundred times per year.

What has happened in the last 40 years to cause the increase? Are Americans really behaving that badly? What is the reason for the rise in the use of excessive force by police officers?

Filmmaker Charles Shaw produced a short film titled “Release Us” to expose the harsh reality of the escalating battle between citizens and law enforcement.

Some highlights from the film:

500 innocent Americans are murdered by police every year (USDOJ). 5,000 since 9/11, equal to the number of US soldiers lost in Iraq.

In 1994 the US Government passed a law authorizing the Pentagon to donate surplus Cold War era military equipment to local police departments.

In the 20 years since, weaponry designed for use on a foreign battlefield, has been handed over for use on American streets…against American citizens.

The “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror” replaced the Cold War with billions in funding and dozens of laws geared towards this new “war” against its own citizens.

This militarization of the police force has created what is being called an “epidemic of police brutality” sweeping the nation.

    deregister, do not consent to being murdered. YOU voted them in.
    Time to re-boot the united states of America, and disband the USA corporation.
    Re-register in the Republic, vote in humans instead of killing machine corporate entities.

    SKYNET IS HERE…..DRONES. ( great target practice btw )

  • oldman67

    I believe there will be a revolution in America one day and the police will be the first targeted because of actions taken against citizens such as this. They are no different than the Gestapo of Nazi Germany. People do not forget!

    • Cranky Steven

      The revolution has begun. It is cold for now. Pray it does not become hot.

      • patriot156

        no it needs to get hot very hot and soon.
        sorry but I dont see how were to bring back the Republic without it getting hot!

        • Cranky Steven

          The old republic is dead except in memory, fantasy, and the lies of politicians. I have to agree with you that we will have to rebuild on the smoking ashes of our “civilization” but the cost of the collapse will be staggering.

  • 1stworlder

    Nanny Bloomberg’s org named the dead Boston marathon jihadist as a victim of gun violence. Lets keep the extra strength leftists kool aid off of here.

    Most definitely a believable statistic! I wonder how many innocent dogs are killed each year by the cowards in costume as well.
    It’s only going to get worse, as they are testing the waters and they find them to be to their liking. Give them an inch, they’ll take 2 miles.
    Sooner than later even the most dedicated Ostriches will come alive and see what’s evolving in the USA. Heads will start to come out of the sand and the revolution will start. By what ever means possible!

    I was with you guys till that very last name ! I could not believe my eyes , I had to go back & stop it . Police did not murder him ! NO ONE ELSE DID , EITHER ! You disgrace every person who actually was illegally murdered ! That LIE ts going to cost you . Your stupidity hurts all of us !

  • patriot156

    hence 2nd amendment rights if you will use it though.
    don’t go and copout just because they may have used a couple of people who aren’t victims most were that’s good enough.
    I’ve been violated several times luckily it never turned out where I was beat or shot, but been bruised up once though, and called names just for complaining how tight the cuffs were. Eventually they had to apologize and return my stuff, but still could of ended that way.Getting to the point where using the 2nd seems more and more imperitive.

    When eyes can see crime becoming legal, and protectors becoming abusers … when eyes can see laws defending wrong, and criminal becoming heroes …. then eyes are waking as the truth is finally been seen … these things have always been since the evil and negative elite took over the system, they were just being played out by unseen means controlling and influencing events and life situations by those sinister elites behind the veil … as they did so in an ingenious secretive and unfair way allowed by the takeover of the matrix ..

    That’s what it was meant by “12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” … WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD ..

    I Thank the CREATOR for the process bringing these wicked days to an end

  • michael

    the problem is they get away with it. if they were prosecuted like your me then it wouldn’t be outrages. a few bad apples spoil the bunch

  • libra8a .

    That’s not ever politically correct. It’s just wrong. He was not murdered.

    • Rachael

      He was murdered. You don’t have to believe everything the jury decides. They are just people after all.
