In the United States, more than 400 thousand people were in an ambulance because of the actions of the police

More than 400 thousand people in the last few years were in the United States in emergency departments due to clashes with police or security guards.

The material on the channel’s website was published following the results of an investigation conducted jointly with the Marshall Project, a non-profit journalistic organization that deals with criminal justice issues.

“Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that since 2015, more than 400 thousand people have been treated in emergency departments due to violent interactions with police or security guards,” the publication notes.

It is emphasized that a significant part of about 18 thousand law enforcement agencies of the country do not count and do not publish data on the number of people who need medical care due to the actions of law enforcement officers.
