I’m sure many of you have noticed the National Police Misconduct newsfeed in the left sidebar of this blog that is compiled daily by Injustice in Seattle, who has done an excellent job bringing to our attention the sheer amount of incidents involving police officers on a daily basis.
These are stories that normally only receive regional coverage so he has done us a great service by bringing these stories to the national level. Even an old cynic like me is overwhelmed by the amount of alleged rapes, thievery and abuses conducted by these officers on a daily basis.
However, he doesn’t believe enough people are reading it because he has only registered about 100 views a day and has received absolutely zero feedback. He is considering shutting it down.
The truth is, the types of stories can leave one speechless, which is one reason for little feedback. It’s like a bad car wreck. You don’t want to see it, but you can’t help yourself. In fact, you need to see it in order to understand how fragile and unpredictable life can be. But then you really don’t want to talk about it.
Also, I know there are much more than 100 readers a day who see that newsfeed on this site.
So if you believe it is worth his while to continue compiling this information, let him know by voting in his poll and by mentioning it in the comment section of this post.
