Cato Relaunches Police Misconduct Tracker, Assuring Regular Online Diet of Face-Stomping, Groin-Crushing ‘Professionalism’

This week marks the official relaunch of the National Police Misconduct Reporting Project under the auspices of the Cato Institute, taking over for the now-defunct Injustice Everywhere blog.

David Packman, operator of Injustice Everywhere (a police abuse news feed that was a frequent source of tips for Reason.com), had announced in April that his blog was struggling. After mulling over his options, he announced in a goodbye blog entry last week he was handing the site and the duties over to the Cato Institute. Injusticeeverywhere.com now redirects to Cato’s site.

Tim Lynch, Cato’s director of their Project on Criminal Justice, is overseeing the blog now. The project’sTwitter feed (@NPMRP) is the best way to keep track of new abuse report links. This morning they have a link to a story at The Jersey Journal about a $185,000 excessive force settlement. They’ve got a formto report any misconduct reports they might have missed. They’ll also be compiling all the incidents into quarterly and annual statistical reports.
