Conversation: how to support Fatal Encounters?
Can we interview Brian, Brendan O’Connor, others?
MetaLab built Their Names to visualize this
Conversation: can we work w/PDAP? Interview, interest.
Focus: police killings, abuse of protesters, attacks on journalists, related law + policy
Help each group frame their question. Center this in the U of related Qs.
Police Data Initiative: Complaints dataset (ZV intro)
Police Data Accessibility: data project (for now: P reports)
Campaign Zero (scorecards)
CPDP - Chicago only. Can we extend nationally? PDA is interested
WaPo - Fatal Force (public data, paywalled summary)
Guardian - The Counted (2015-16 only)
WatchWatch: Documenting police brutality against protesters
Guardian Attacks on Journalists (doc on Guardian project)
Goal - Aggregate data, present it, assist others in using it
cit oversight boards, researchers, visualizers
Workflow - FOIA + request processing; site scraping; partners?
Need - Clear license
What Qs to answer? not clear so far.
Current team: Reddit Privacy… few criminologists.
want to post an article to reach out
Ways to work together:
DVaughan to post notes to their GitHub
building a catalog of existing projects (local communities, different campaigns, different approaches, different classes of data)
feedback on setting up a 501c3
publishing essays + visuals (PubPub community?)
describing the schemas of data that you are gathering, and the specific questions you are answering w/ that data
defining potential partners w/ data or tools to align (like CPDP)
quick-starts w/ a fiscal sponsor (like Tides)
Fatal Encounters (grassroots, under-appreciated, slow since ‘19?)
