Police shoot far more people than anyone realized, a VICE News investigation reveals – VICE News
December 11, 2017
An exclusive analysis of data from the 50 largest local police departments in the United States shows that police shoot Americans more than twice as often as previously known.

Police shootings aren’t just undercounted — police in these departments shoot black people at a higher rate and shoot unarmed people far more often than any data has shown. Recent reform efforts have already worked to bring down police shootings, our investigation shows. Yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions is moving away from these reforms, to the dismay of advocates, experts, and some local law enforcement officials.

VICE News examined both fatal and nonfatal incidents to determine that cops in the 50 largest local departments shot at least 3,631 people from 2010 through 2016. That’s more than 500 people a year. On more than 700 other occasions, police fired at citizens and missed. Two-thirds of the people cops fired at survived.

Providing access to datasets through APIs
In this blog post I’ll discuss our thoughts on providing access to datasets through APIs. My thoughts are based on experiences with the Registers team, who have been conducting user research into how people use data, and agree with the US API standards.

There are two different ways to access a large dataset: you can either perform individual queries for individual pieces of data via an API, or you can download the whole dataset and perform queries on your local copy at leisure. Normally needs will dictate the type of data access you go for.
