The object of innocentdown.org is to document the innocent people killed by law enforcement and to remember those innocent victims of police violence.
It is always sad when anyone loses their life: police or non-police. No one’s life has more value over another. Statistics are meticulously gathered by the Department of Justice on the number of LEOs that die each year and specifically how they lose their lives. LEO deaths are not always at the hand of an assailant. Some die from their driving negligence, poor health or even violence against themselves.
There is no funeral cortège, no salute, no remembrance of the innocent people killed by law enforcement. They are often forgotten except by their family and friends. This is the reason for this site – to remember all of those innocent people killed at the hand of law enforcement.
