The 1000 or 864 people killed by police since 1 January 2015 by threat level

The Guardian numbers are higher than those of the Washington Post investigation in part because they include deaths in custody and people run over by police including in routine car accidents.

The Washington Post breakdown includes threat level such as whether the deceased were attacking police and what type of weapon they were found to have been carrying, if any.

Before you get too excited, in the aftermath of the recent Paris attacks, it was pointed out that the British police have difficulty recruiting to their armed response units because of the legal hassles involved if an armed police officer shoots anyone. There are 6000 authorised firearm officers in the UK. All 288,000 French police are armed – often with automatic weapons.

3rd-quarter fundraising results for the Republican primaries

You’ll notice that Carly Fiorina is now raising more money than Marco Rubio. Ben Carson raises a lot of money as does Jeb Bush, but not Donald Trump. I’m still tipping Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio to be the Republican ticket.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
