San Diego Stolen Lives 1980-Present
How does UAPTSD count law enforcement perpetrated fatalities?
So far, we count with traditional reporting on witness statements, by monitoring regional news outlets, research groups, police scanner info and open -source reporting projects – crediting appropriately though our creative commons mission.
What is included in Uaptsd #StolenLives database?
Any deaths arising directly from encounters with law enforcement – by both on and off duty as well as retired officers. This will inevitably include, but not be limited to, people who were shot, tasered and struck by LEO (government and state) officers vehicles, a high speed chase initiated by an officer which led to the death of person suspected of a crime and any bystanders, family members and domestic partners of law enforcement as well those who died in custody, including jails, prisons and immigrant detention centers. We also report on MTS and other private security companies which equip. guards with police grade weapons who have used brutal force which was responsible for their death.
