Anti – Eviction Mapping Project’s MURDER MAP of POLICE KILLINGS

Do check out the amazing work done by the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project. They’ve created an interactive map of police killings in San Francisco, from 1985-2014. Complete with information about victims and the racial breakdown of the killings  which are unsurprising but nevertheless disturbing:

71% of known victims were people of color.

41% of known victims were Black, despite making up only 6% of San Francisco’s population in 2013.
