A recent article (note the bold for 2014 comparing civilian vs cop deaths):

http://www.wisconsingazette.com/national/police-killed-1186-civilians-during-2015.html

As of Dec. 26, police had killed 1,186 people since the year 2015 began, according to the website killedbypolice.net, which lists all the victims’ names and links to news reports of their deaths.

The Washington Post puts the number of Americans shot dead by police in 2015 at 965, but the Post only included shootings that involved an on-duty police shooting to death a civilian. The Post reported 62 of the deaths occurred in the past 30 days.

The Post did not include people in police custody, fatal shootings by off-duty officers, or police killings that did not involve firearms.

Police killed more than 1,100 civilians in 2014. Twenty-seven police were killed in the line of duty that year.

From wiki:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_American_police_officers_killed_in_the_line_of_duty

This is a list of American police officers killed in the line of duty. The list includes only individuals whose deaths received significant local, national, or international attention, and is not an inclusive list of all such officers killed. Summaries of the overall casualty figures, by year, are also provided.


List at wiki link.

Out of 69 reported cops killed in line of duty for 2015 as of November 28, 2015, twenty-seven 27 were from gunfire and a majority of the cops killed were by heart attack or accident.

From 2010 to 2014 cops killed in line of duty ranged from 114 to 161 including killed by criminals and those killed by accident or heart attack.

The statistics are way out of line IMHO.
