When Neuman got out of the car he was armed and began shooting at people. A deputy fired back and hit Neuman who then fell into the pond.

Dustydawn - if what you say is true, that can happen with this project.

As explained at we simply imported a collection of data about people who've been killed by police.

We imported it because the people in charge of maintaining the data didn't seem to be doing enough to maximize the visibility of that data. They also don't allow for people to post comments on their sites. We downloaded an Excel sheet containing that data and imported it here so that people like you can offer feedback on what was said.

Sometimes the people killed by police were not victims. The Boston Marathon bombers are a good example. On the list due to being killed by police but not victims either.

Dustydawn Says:

This man was released from jail after he murdered his tiny little wife in front of her children. He was wearing a monitor when he was shot. He was shot because he was shooting at EMS and Fire dept. he is no victim. However if u want to bash the judge and DA who let him out. That would be the district Gore, Ok. Those guys suck at their job! The cop is a badass!!! Saved a lot of people that day. This site is a sad joke without any substance. Just so u know!
