US Senators Call for Mandatory Reporting of Police Killings

A plan to force all American law enforcement agencies to report killings by their officers was unveiled by US senators on Tuesday, a day after the Guardian published an investigation into the fatal use of force by police.
Senators Barbara Boxer of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey proposed legislation that would demand all states submit reports to the US Department of Justice that they said would bring “transparency and accountability to law enforcement agencies nationwide”.
The Guardian disclosed on Monday that 102 of 467 people who died at the hands of law enforcement so far this year were unarmed.
