It happened again: A cop, probably driving way too fast ("It has not been made clear how fast the police officer was traveling when he struck the Honda") had just turned his siren on when he slammed full force into a car driven by Jose Landaverde, 63, who died from the impact. His wife and mother-in-law were badly hurt and taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. Sheriffs are allegedly investigating.

I just found this site. Apparently it's a project of the right-libertarian Cato Institute, which has produced some questionable studies, but at least they are bringing attention to the matter of police misconduct at a national level. Here is an excerpt from their FAQ page:

Only a small fraction of the 17,000 law enforcement agencies actually track their own misconduct in a semi-public manner, and even when they do, the data they provide is generic and does not specify what misconduct occurred, who did it, and what the end result was.

San Bernardino County probation officer kidnaps and falsely imprisons man, sexually harasses his sister

This story, coming out of the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, is about a probation officer who, under color of authority, kidnapped a man and took him to his sister's house. A few days later he went back and sexually harassed the sister. Not surprising considering the lack of accountability for law enforcement officials.
