THE COUNTED: people killed by police in the U.S.

I don't know if anyone's posted a link to this site.  Not sure how they gather their data, but it looks like an attempt to count every person killed by the police on a day to day basis in the US.

I like the website.  It shows a photo of each victim, so you can see at a glance that the police aren't merely killing people of one race.  It also gives you links to local newspaper and television reports about the killings.  And it gives a synopsis of each killing.  A lot of the killings were no-brainers--if you or I were in the cops' shoes, we would have shot, too.  Lots of whacked out people out there.
