Criminologist Phil Stinson, '92, has become a media go-to expert on police violence, particularly in the aftermath of the Ferguson, MO shooting. Here's one excerpt:
"In his own research, Bowling Green State University's Stinson has documented 31 cases where a state and local officer was arrested for an on-duty, gun-related murder or non-negligent manslaughter from 2005 to 2011. He found 10 other cases in that time where an officer was arrested for negligent manslaughter in a gun-related incident that happened while the officer was on duty.
His analysis relies on news accounts and court records -- not formal federal statistics."
