Nonsense, you are only shredded by your peers when you go against the accepted ideology.
Liberal lie. The records are easily obtainable and most local news media keep current and readily accessible records. Simply google crime by city and you will find maps, locations, names, pictures, and listings by race
Controversy over the government’s lack of official data on killings by police was set off by the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014. The death of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, led to protests and riots in the town and across the US.
The FBI’s annual count of homicides by police, which depends on chiefs voluntarily submitting their numbers, was discredited after it became clear that the method was recording less than half of all killings nationwide.
Better data on killings and the use of force by police officers was strongly recommended by a White House taskforce on policing convened by Barack Obama following the unrest in Ferguson. More protests were sparked in Baltimore and other cities amid more questionable deaths of black men at the hands of police.
Reforms to data collection were announced last year after James Comey, the FBI director, said it was “unacceptable” that The Counted and a similar project by the Washington Post held better data on the issue than his own officials, a situation he said was “embarrassing and ridiculous”.
The Counted will draw to a close at the end of 2016 after working to record all deaths caused by law enforcement officers this year and in 2015. Readers continue to assist journalists in compiling the data by submitting tips or local media reports about deadly incidents.
"Stormsmith"]I have no idea how many graduating sociologists actually become sociologists. Of this field, I have no Idea how many are Democrats or independent, or Republicans, or the Silly Hat Party. Neither do you. You're speculating. Speculation aren't arguments.
So it's safe to say you have never attended a symposium on sociology much less leafed through a collection of critical arguments.
These are thoroughly unreliable. From the Guardian, US Dec.15, 2016.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Australian woman in July was booked into jail Tuesday on charges of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Officer Mohamed Noor turned himself in Tuesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old life coach, on July 15 minutes after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Damond’s death drew international attention, cost the police chief her job and forced major revisions to the department’s policy on body cameras.
