From the No D’Uh files:

FBI may shut down police use-of-force database due to lack of police participation

In an attempt to create a definitive database on how often police officers use force on citizens, the FBI launched the National Use-of-Force Data Collection program in 2019, imploring police departments to submit details on every incident, not just fatal shootings. But the failure of police and federal agencies to send their data to the FBI puts the program in jeopardy of being shut down next yearwithout ever releasing a single statistic, a new report by the Government Accountability Office says.

Police policing themselves? Unpossible!

“Due to insufficient participation from law enforcement agencies,” the GAO wrote, “the FBI faces risks that it may not meet the participation thresholds” established by OMB, “and therefore may never publish use of force incident data.”

There are a few good cops here and there, but this is not an altruistic profession anymore. Police have self-sorted into HGH-filled, roid rage monsters looking to beat-up someone swarthy; they are not going to turn in any incriminating evidence to anyone.  Mayberry it’s not.

It’s kinda cute that anyone thought that the police  would comply.

  1. They wail and moan about ‘#NotAllCops’ and ‘just a few bad apple’ but I’m failing to see any evidence to rebut ACAB. They are our Servants, not our Masters.

    (and if I see one more fucking ‘thin blue line’ flag desecration I swear I’m a gonna beat someone to death with it. It is NOT the police’s role to literally declare half of us criminals…but that’s what that means, whether they realize it or not…)

    They don’t become police officers because they’re smart or they’re good people – exactly the opposite. And I’d be surprised if there was someone smart enough to use the FBI site at many police stations.

    This is a continuation of Government agencies, Fed and State, not working together to learn how to fix things within agencies and such. The breakdown of inter-agency cooperation is the beginning of the end of a functioning Government. In this case our Democracy and Government because one of our two political parties is out of its collective mind.

    The republicans suck so hard they tearing the chrome off the bumpers.

    The police are racist murderers. If the people who become cops weren’t interested in killing people under the guise of authority, they would have become EMTs or fire fighters. I live in So Cal, home to some of the largest and most murderous gangs of racist haters disguised as people who “protect and serve.” They protect rich white people and serve death to anyone else when possible.
    The first rule of “Call the cops” is Don’t call the cops unless you want someone near you to die. Think first-Is this situation dire enough to have someone end up dead in the street? If not, don’t call the cops. I know this is true from first hand info.

      Can’t like this comment, but I need to acknowledge. In our area the gang is less murderous. Just framing people to put in jail and take their stuff.
