Incalculable Losses

Did you know that since 9/11 more people (of all races) have been killed by the police in the USA than the number of U.S. soldiers killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan? (Check out this police shooting database via Jeff Bezos’s Washington Post.) Also, check out the reimagined front page headline pictured below via the Incalculable Loss Project: “We took the iconic New York Times cover from Memorial Day and featured just some of the names of Black lives lost to police violence alongside the status of their case.” Alas, the status of most of these cases is “pending investigation.” Note of clarification: not all of the dead listed below were unarmed at the time of their deaths. You can see a better-quality version of the entire reimagined front page here. (This post was revised and corrected on 6/12.)
