Trust between police and public is falling as more questionable use of lethal force and brutal treatment of suspects hits the news. Officers are also concerned over the ferocity of attacks against them. August's death toll paints a worrying picture.
No US government agency tracks the number of civilians killed by the police. Two mainstream newspapers, the Washington Post and the Guardian, have kept records of police shootings in 2015 putting them at 82 and 99 in August respectively. The "Killed by Police" project, launched in May 2013, chronicles all civilian deaths by police officers, regardless of the method. Their numbers stand at 103 civilian deaths this month, and 791 so far in 2015.
While that number is slightly lower than 125 deaths recorded in July, the number of police killed by suspects has risen sharply - from one in July to six in August, according to a nonprofit that tracks officers killed in the line of duty.

Leading the way is Dr. Michael Anderson, a pediatrician in the Atlanta area. Incredibly, Anderson told the New York Times ("Attention Disorder or Not, Pills to Help in School") his diagnoses of ADHD are "made up," "an excuse" to hand out the drugs.
"We've decided as a society that it's too expensive to modify the kid's environment. So we have to modify the kid," Anderson said.
It would be hard to find a clearer mission statement from a psychiatrist: mind control.
