The Counted is a new ongoing investigative project from The Guardian. They are recording all the people killed by US police in 2015 with the public’s help.

“We count to hold the powerful to account, and in the hope that we can shift the patterns of conversation from ‘isolated incidents’ and ‘bad apples’ to a more informed assessment of the widespread patterns and the whole barrel. We count everyone because everyone counts.”
— Gary Younge, feature writer and columnist for the Guardian
