Police Encounters: A data project w/ D. Brian Burghart

According to FatalEncounters.org, there have been 934 police-involved deaths between January 1, 2020 and June 12, 2020. How does a lifelong, award-winning journalist, the former editor/publisher of the Reno News & Review and a former journalism instructor at the University of Nevada, Reno create one of the leading data sources for US fatal encounters with the police? This is our conversation today. Fatal Encounters is a 501(c)3 public charity. If you’re interested in donating your time or money, please visit https://fatalencounters.org/donate/ Post-edit Corrections: “The Geezer grant was for $12,000, not $17,000 and the university I was doing the AI stuff with was UMass, not Harvard.”
