Senators slam DOJ for reporting of in-custody deaths | NewsNation Live
The United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report Tuesday stating that the Department of Justice (DOJ) undercounted nearly 1,000 deaths in U.S. prisons, jails or during arrests in the last fiscal year.
According to the findings, the DOJ not only missed the deaths of 990 people in custody during the 2021 fiscal year, but the data that was scavenged was not complete. The investigation stated that 70% of the data was missing at least one required piece of information — such as race, ethnicity, age or gender.
