    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.”


  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
