Fatal Encounters

A step toward creating an impartial, comprehensive and searchable national database of people killed during interactions with police

Crowd visualizations

These visualizations, which are based on the spreadsheets that relate to the database, have come from sources around the world. Thanks, D. Brian

I can’t do justice to some of the more intense visualizations by inserting them here, so I’ll link to them: The National Police Violence Map: http://mappingpoliceviolence.org/ People Killed by Police: http://1point21interactive.com/people-killed/ This video was done by Mark W. Gray, with whom I never communicated before he made this incredible video for the Project for Awesome campaign. Incredibly generous. http://youtu.be/U7tZqt_Njkc Here’s the first song. It’s called Ferguson Ferguson and was written by Billy Joe Mills. Here’s what the songwriter wrote: “I used your website in researching and fueling my outrage in writing and recording this song. I wanted to send it along to you and to also thank you for providing a valuable resource.” [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/173274191″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

  This first one, with its four tabs, has about 1,600 incidents on it, last updated on Sept. 14. We’re working out a way to make the updates ongoing. It was provided by Steven Mattson Hayhurst, Director, Enstoa (Australia) Pty Ltd, Perth, WA 6000
