Protests Against Police Brutality Shake US
Over the past year, the United States experienced a new wave of massive protests and riots despite efforts by the US government to prevent police killing of Americans and fight racial discrimination in law enforcement.
Since January 2015, US police has killed more than 1,100 people, according to the Killed by Police monitoring website. The high number of incidents has prompted public outcry and urged the US government to introduce new policies and investigate police departments' practices throughout the country.
In March, President Barack Obama said racism, tensions between police and minority communities as well as violence regrettably are a reality in the United States.
