No, as I've stated, and stated very specifically, i'm saying that the data states that only 2 unarmed black people were shot and killed by white cops where the victims were not attacking cops at the time.
And no, I cannot use that database to filter data.
Why not? The filters to search the database are near the bottom of the page.
Also, the WP database only includes officer shootings, which is only a fraction of police killings. For example, Mr, Floyd’s death would not show up in the database.
Yes the database is only tracking people shot and killed by police.
There is also the problem that the WP database is not comprehensive. In fact, there is no such database. We honestly have no idea how many police killings there are every year.
I don't know of any more accurate database for police shootings. Why is it not comprehensive? The FBI admitted the WP database is more accurate than their own numbers. Here's their methodology: https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/how-the-washington-post-is-examining-police-shootings-in-the-united-states/2016/07/07/d9c52238-43ad-11e6-8856-f26de2537a9d_story.html
