The death toll from the recent police shootings of two black men in Minneapolis and New York City has topped 100, with at least seven others wounded.
The study, released Wednesday by the New York Civil Liberties Union, shows that a majority of white people are also more likely to kill a police officer.
“We are seeing an increase in the number of police killings of black people, and that increases the risk of being killed by a police agent, which is a significant risk for black people,” said Eric Toder, executive director of the New Yorkers Civil Liberties Organization.
“This is a very real danger to communities of color and communities of poverty.”
The report also shows that people who are most likely to die by police are those with a strong, liberal political orientation.
“A majority of Americans, if you take a look at the data, have very liberal political orientations,” said Toder.
“That is the one place where we see these trends, that we see the very high rate of police shootings and that is the most dangerous place.”
The study analyzed data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
It analyzed police shootings across the country from January 1, 2014, to the present.
The report showed that a quarter of people who were killed by the police in 2014 were killed in the previous 12 months.
More than half of those who were shot were black, compared to just 11 percent of the total U.S. population.
The vast majority of those killed by law enforcement were unarmed.
In 2016, at least 628 people were killed at the hands of law enforcement officers in the U.s., according to the Brennan Center for Justice.
The number of people killed by officers in 2016, which the study did not include, was higher than the number killed by people who committed suicide in the entire U. S. population in 2016.
According to the report, more than half the people killed were black.
That number rose to 75 percent among people aged 18 to 24.
The authors of the study found that among people with liberal political views, there was a higher rate of being shot by police officers in New York, the most violent city in the nation, compared with most other major cities.
New York is also the most racially segregated state in the country.
It has the highest number of black men between the ages of 25 and 29 killed by cops in the United States.
The death of Jamar Clark, a 27-year-old man, on the New Jersey Turnpike in January was one of the most recent cases of police violence.
Clark was shot in the back and died at the scene, according to authorities.
The New York Times reported that he was shot because of his skin color.
He was unarmed and he had his hands in the air.
Police shot Clark twice in the chest, once in the head, and once in his chest.
He died a few minutes later.
Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been under fire since 2014 for their use of excessive force.
Police have killed at least three people in Minneapolis.
A new report by the Brennan Institute for Justice, released Tuesday, shows the most powerful forces that drive mass incarceration and policing have been concentrated in the last decade.
The most important factors for police violence, the report said, are the “high level of inequality between the races” and the “lack of social cohesion and trust between police and communities.”
“In order to reduce the level of police brutality, we need to address the fundamental causes of policing,” said Brian Black, a senior fellow at the Brennan center and the lead author of the report.
“For many decades, there has been a relationship between inequality and police violence and we’ve seen a shift to more systemic and structural reforms in recent decades,” Black said.
“When people have less trust and less trust in the police, they are more likely not to take action.”
More than two-thirds of black Americans live in poverty, according the report published by the Center for American Progress, a liberal-leaning think tank.
