-- A new website has been launched to help fight rampant police brutality in the United States, http://www.PoliceBrutality.US is dedicated to exposing this alarming trend. The website plans to be the largest database of police brutality videos, pictures and news stories on the Internet. The video database is available on the website, or through the organizations YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/
and currently features over 1000 videos of police brutality incidents. According to Director of Online Content, Marquez Alexander, the site plans on adding another 5,000 - 10,000 videos over the next several weeks. Marquez went on to explain, "while there are currently tens of thousands of online videos that allege police brutality, many are duplicates or of very poor quality. We are currently working to remove duplicate submissions, improve quality, and accurately tag each individual video, so that they can be easily searched".
The Website also accepts submissions from members of the public that may have captured an incident of police brutality on tape, but don't know how to get it online. Evan Abbs who is the editor of the Website stated, "we offer people an anonymous way to report incidents of police brutality that they may have caught on tape or witnessed, we think this tool is very important as it shines a light on the problem and gets the story out to the world".
The website is easy to navigate and has a lot of very informative content, we think this website will really resonate with the public, and help hold the police accountable when the cross the line.
