metaLAB Releases “Their Names” Visualization

Visualization contends with the stories of over 28,000 police-involved deaths from 2000–2020

metaLAB released Their Names, a visualization that contends with the stories of over 28,000 police-involved deaths, 2000–2020, based on the Fatal Encounters dataset.

It treats the victims as individual persons, highlighting the often sad and disturbing stories behind each datapoint. Beyond listing first names and initials, the site makes available the news and police reports from which the data were gleaned.
