A new investigation by In These Times explodes myths about who is most likely to die at the hands of police by revealing that, compared to their percentage of the U.S. population, Native Americans were more likely to be killed by police than any other group, including African Americans. It also found that cases of African-American police deaths tend to dominate headlines, while killings of Native people go almost entirely unreported by mainstream U.S. media. We speak with reporter Stephanie Woodard, who wrote the article, "The Police Killings No One Is Talking About," and with James Rideout, the uncle of Jacqueline Salyers, a 32-year-old pregnant mother and member of the Puyallup Tribe who was killed by police earlier this year in Tacoma, Washington.

AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now!, democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. I’m Amy Goodman. We end today’s show looking at a new investigation by In These Times magazine that explodes myths about who’s most likely to die at the hands of police. The article is titled "The Police Killings No One Is Talking About." It explains, quote, "When compared to their percentage of the U.S. population, [Native Americans] were more likely to be killed by police than any other group, including African Americans. ... [A]nalysis of CDC data from 1999 to 2014 shows ... Native Americans are 3.1 times more likely to be killed by police than white Americans."
