    What 16 Months Of Police Killings In The U.S. Look Like

    PoliceKillingsDotMap.r2.gif

    One of the most comprehensive projects to date is a website called Killed By Police. The site logged nearly 1,500 police-involved deaths between January 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015 and included documentation for each incident.

    I wonder how many of those were legit, and how many were in cold blood.

    That is something that I want to know as well. Let's avoid stereotyping all police officers as vicious, bloodthirsty bullies on a power trip. That is just not so.

    I don't think that anyone is doing that. It is a very small minority that is the problem. But the way the system is designed might possibly be encouraging it. I think that is what we need to find out.

    Even that "small minority" is justified to use deadly force when confronted with it. That's the law.

    This is bullshit.

    First on the list is a report of a Cadillac coming across the median, hitting a police car and 2 pedestrians being killed... hardly "being killed by a cop"

    Here's the 3rd one on the list.

    "SOUTH EL MONTE >> A man with a meat cleaver attacked and wounded his neighbor, killed her husband then was shot dead by deputies Tuesday when he refused to drop his weapon and kept approaching deputies, a sheriff’s detective said.

    I'd have shot the motherfucker too if he was coming at me with a cleaver.

    4th on the list!
    http://www.wsls.com/story/28977735/vsp-investigating-officer-involved-shooting-in-pulaski

    Officer A. M. Abdelaziz was checking the Pulaski Storage lot when he discovered a Ford pickup truck sitting in a row between the storage buildings. The officer thought the truck was unoccupied because the windows were tinted, so he approached saw a man, later identified as 46-year-old Robert Frost, sitting in the front seat, apparently asleep, with a handgun in his hand resting on his lap.

    Officer Abdelaziz said he backed up a few steps, requested backup and then walked back to the open window of the truck.

    That's when he said Frost woke suddenly, raised the gun and began shooting.

    Officer Abdelaziz went to the back of the truck and discharged three shots. He said it was an attempt to stop the attack. The officer said Frostp oened the truck door and fell onto the ground. Police started emergency medical first aid while an ambulance was called.

    Failing to log on before having a read, I happened upon crap I normally ignore...

    Clearly the article says:
    A police car struck and killed two pedestrians on the New Jersey Turnpike.

    (and then it goes on to say)

    State police said the victims’ 2001 Cadillac Escalade broke down in the southbound lanes. They ("They" the pedestrians, not "They" the broken down car, duh!) crossed the median and were struck in the left lane of the northbound side about a mile south of the Vince Lombardi service area ...

    5th on the list

    Man dead after SWAT standoff in Kennewick http://www.keprtv.com/SWAT-on-scene-of-standoff-in-Kennewick-302418671.html

    A female came out to the second story balcony of #B10 with a 7 year of age male child. The officers caught the child as she handed him off over the balcony. As she was attempting to come over the balcony to the officers below, the suspect fired at least one shot.

    At that point the officers returned fire to protect the officers that where below the balcony and the female who had just gone over the balcony rail. Once on the ground, the officers covered her up with their bodies to protect her. Those officers were heroes as they sacrificed their own safety to protect her.

    Police investigating officer involved shooting in Perry County
    http://www.wkyt.com/wymt/home/headlines/Police-investigating-officer-involved-shooting-in-Perry-County-302391481.html

    A constable was conducting a traffic stop when he heard shots and called for back up.

    When police arrived at a camper behind a house, they tried to get in touch with the man inside, who they identified as Michael Asher, 53, of Chavies. Dispatchers also tried to reach them by phone, but could not, said Sims. Asher eventually came out of the camper.

    "Officers observed that Mr. Asher was bringing the firearm up in their direction, at which time they engaged him with gunfire," said Sims.

    (The guy came out to the police with a gun after he'd been firing it?)

    It's pretty apparent this site would be totally useless as a serious source for tracking real cases of police brutality and abuse.
