About me

Hi, my name is D. Brian Burghart. I’m the former editor/publisher of the Reno News & Review, a master’s student and a journalism instructor at the University of Nevada, Reno. This is my blog. I live in Reno, Nevada. I’ve created this page because I believe in a democracy, citizens should be able to figure out how many people are killed by law enforcement, why they were killed, and whether training and policies can be modified to decrease the number of officer-involved deaths.
