WATCH the latest killing to refresh your memory on just what we’ve become. It is high noon in Lynchville USA.

As of July 2016, Police killed at least 136 black people in 2016, according to a project by the Guardian that tracks police killings in America. Philando Castile became the latest addition to the list Wednesday night after an officer shot him dead. In 2015….
- Police killed at least 102 unarmed Black people in 2015, nearly twice each week. (See which police departments were responsible for these deaths)
- Nearly 1 in 3 Black people killed by police in 2015 were identified as unarmed, though the actual number is likely higher due to underreporting
- Unarmed Black people were killed at 5x the rate of unarmed whites in 2015
- Only 10 of the 102 cases in 2015 where an unarmed Black person was killed by police resulted in officer(s) being charged with a crime, and only 2 of these deaths (Matthew Ajibade and Eric Harris) resulted in convictions of officers involved. Only 1 of 2 officers convicted for their involvement in Matthew Ajibade’s death received jail time. He was sentenced to 1 year in jail and allowed to serve this time exclusively on weekends. Deputy Bates, who murdered Eric Harris, will be sentenced May 31.
