Thin Blue Lie

Every year, police kill roughly 1,200 people and assault or harass countless others. However, many cases go unreported and the misconducts that are reported get buried in internal documents —hidden from public view. By gathering evidence of incidents from social media posts and news articles, Thin Blue Lie aims to document the widespread nature of police brutality in America while providing resources to learn more about the issue and it’s proposed solutions.
