    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com No reliable numbers on US police killings After the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, there is a creeping discourse in American public opinion and the media that questions why there is only outrage when blacks are killed by non-blacks such as white policemen.
