An article has been circulating around social media, claiming
approximately 55,400 people were injured or killed by [US] cops during legal stop and search incidents in one year. Of this number, about 1,000 were killed, with vast majority dying from gunshot wounds. The remaining 54,400 were hospitalized with serious injuries, mostly from blunt objects.
The article cites this study, which seems legit. However, I fear that the article may misinterpret or exaggerate the study's claims. Are the article's claims substantiated by the study, and is the study's analysis/methodology valid?
