Native Americans most likely ethnic group to be killed by police

 


Daniel Covarrubias, Christina Tahhahwah, Loreal Tsingine, Rexdale Henry.

These names, along with many others, are likely to be unfamiliar to most people in the US, but they are all Native Americans who were killed by law enforcement.

As reported by In These Times, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on 47 states between 1999 and 2011 found that Native Americans were even more likely than African Americans to be killed in the hands of law enforcement.
