    1. 3.5. This is nonfiction written for academics and policy makers--it doesn't read as a "popular" nonfiction book. Given that, I was surprised at how quickly I got through it. The data--and it is all about the data--was compelling, and the writing lucid.


    2. When Police Kill is an important, groundbreaking book by Franklin E. Zimring. It is an absolutely necessary book that addresses the data shortcomings that will frustrate any attempt to address the incomparably high rate of killings of civilians by police in the United States, the relative impunity with which police kill civilians, and the negligible and ineffective efforts to curb the frequency of those killings. It is also a rigorously academic book steeped in statistics and careful, painstakin [...]


    3. This book is a bit terse and academic,but has a lot of good food for thought. It acknowledges the risk United States police face daily. But the comparisons to other nations are astounding. Why do we have such high incident rates versus England etc? Well done book with some thoughts on how we might reduce the numbers.


    4. This book is probably the first of its kind. It examines the rate of killing of civilians by on duty police officers in the US in the 21st century, spurred by the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.The book examines what sorts of statistics are available (very few), the quality of the data (not very good), and makes what comparisons can be made.
