Looks like a damn pinball machine. Zap! Bong! Ding ding ding!
I’ve been following WaPo’s tally, which is based on “news reports, police records, internet databases and original reporting.” Their report isn’t consistent with the mappingpoliceviolence.org numbers, and has some very different “takeaways”. There are some similarities, but still, the inconsistencies are troubling.
This is why we need national, mandatory, and standardized reporting by law enforcement jurisdictions to the FBI…a lot sooner than sometime in 2017: So we can get standardized reporting from the media and public interest advocates. The issue is too important to be commodified and exploited.
