At least 84 people now dead, including at least 10 children, after this rented truck slammed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city of Nice. The driver, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, drove through 2km (1.2 miles) on the sidewalk and roadway along the Promenade des Anglais at about 23:00 local time, before being shot dead by police as he then opened fire on the crowd. Witnesses say the speeding truck swerved and zigzagged in an apparent attempt to hit more people. Police found guns and grenades inside the truck. ~ BBC

NY Times: Evidence shows bias in police use of force but not in shootings;
study contradicts image of police shootings Americans usually told & hold

"And in the arena of “shoot” or “don’t shoot,” the Harvard study found that, in tense situations, officers in Houston were about 20% less likely to shoot suspects if the suspect were black. This estimate was not very precise, and firmer conclusions would require more data. But, in a variety of models that controlled for different factors and used different definitions of tense situations, it was found that blacks were either less likely to be shot or there was no difference between blacks and whites."

“It is the most surprising result of my career,” said Roland G. Fryer Jr., the author of the study and a Professor of economics at Harvard. The study examined more than 1,000 shootings in 10 major police departments, in Texas, Florida and California. Mr. Fryer is the youngest African-American to receive tenure at Harvard and the first one to receive a John Bates Clark medal, a prize given to the most promising American economist under 40.

Mr. Fryer said his anger after the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray and others drove him to study the issue. “You know, protesting is not my thing,” he said. “But data is my thing. So I decided that I was going to collect a bunch of data and try to understand what really is going on when it comes to racial differences in police use of force.”

updated Dallas: Police Chief Brown calls on citizens to come together;
Officers have to be held accountable; "bad ones can't define the rest";
"increase in violent crime in Dallas and nationwide since last summer"

Dallas Police Chief David Brown says he and his force are leaving no stone unturned in their investigation. He told one reporter during this morning's press conference "Now you're thinking like a police officer" when a question about accomplices was raised. Brown said he and other officers had been personally threatened since Thursday night, and isn't giving personal interviews because the workload running the force has intensified in recent days.
