346 -- or More

I've spent what time I have had available today going through the Killed by Police listings of the Dead in order to log those who were unarmed... The website AnonSweden posted a video that mentioned "32 unarmed victims" and it just seemed wrong to me.

Well, turned out "32" is a vast undercount.

My methodology wasn't as strict as when I did statistical analysis for some of my working life, but it was close enough for a quick sketch of the problem.

Out of the 1,083 killings by police listed by Killed by Police -- based on corporate media reports -- at least 346 were unarmed victims.

Almost one third of the total.

And there may well be more.

I am in a state of shock.
