Missin Peace Issued the Following Statement on the Murder of Casey Goodson Jr.

Abingdon, MD, December 20, 2020 --Missin Peace is extremely saddened by the death of Casey Goodson Jr. We express deepest condolences to his family and the city of Columbus, Ohio. The killing of Casey Goodson Jr. by a Franklin County Sheriff Deputy is another example of a life unjustly taken by law enforcement. And Franklin County’s response to this tragedy is a glaring example of the agencies, built to serve and protect, turning a blind eye to the repeated atrocities of police brutality.



Nationally, on average, one person is killed every 7 hours by a law officer; law enforcement is indicted in less than 1% of killings (compared to a 90% indictment rate for citizens). Police brutality is a leading cause of death for young men in the US, making it a public health crisis that affects an alarming number of people in our nation - men, women, and children.

At Missin Peace, we are constantly on a mission to pursue justice for victims of police brutality by aggregating formal police complaints from the public, records often buried in internal databases, and making them accessible to investigative journalists, hiring managers, and civil rights attorneys.

We call for any victim of police brutality to register official complaints at MissinPeaces.com to aid in investigations that will bring police abuse to an end, one case at a time.

Statement by Missin Peace in Response to Grand Jury Verdict in the Breonna Taylor Case

Abingdon, MD, September 25, 2020 -- Missin Peace released the following statement regarding the Kentucky Attorney General’s decision to indict one police officer connected with the murder of Breonna Taylor: "With heavy sorrow, we extend our hearts to Breonna Taylor’s family and the unsettling number of people still reeling from the pandemic of police brutality. "Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s failure to bring substantial charges against the officers who murdered Breonna Taylor is a devastating blow to the nation. The system that promised liberty and justice for all failed Breonna Taylor and thus failed us all. Claims to protect and serve were thwarted when the system failed to investigate Breonna Taylor’s murder and the long list of complaints that started years ago. Despite federal recommendations to overhaul systems that track police complaints and discipline officers, police departments have yet to take action. "In 2017, we started the work to end repeat a
