These days, there’s getting to be far more police horror stories than can be posted here with comments added. Sadly, it’s becoming boring and monotonous. But, the more boring and monotonous such events become, the more important it is to record and keep track of them.
So, when a news item is worth noting but there are other issues to be brought forward, I will add the story to this new category, “Police Killings, Violence, Intimidation, Abuse”.
Once in a while I will highlight this category, to avoid it being lost in other issues and events.
Oldest items will be at the bottom, most recent at the top.
