When Is Sacramento's Police Killing Problem Going to be Declared A State of Emergency?

So I was doing some computer work on some spreadsheets today, trying to find some things out...
I stumbled into a page on the Sacramento County District Attorney website that listed all the police involved killings, and in custody deaths from 2014-2021 (please keep in mind this does not include 2022, so the numbers will increase)

Here at BLM Sacramento our focus is Black lives since we are disproportionately murdered more than any other demographic. 
We know that since 2014, we have been lifting the names of 20 people. That is a lot of names for one region. And thats only the Black folks. 

So here you go...lets get the details.

67 people on these lists were murdered by law enforcement within the county of Sacramento.

Sacramento Police Department, Citrus Heights Police Department, Elk Grove Police Department, Sacramento Sheriff Department, California Highway Patrol...you make me embarrassed to live here.

Here are the lists:

    I found a peer-reviewed study funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation showing more than half of police violence deaths from 1980-2018 go unreported. I thought I’d share the resource for anyone else reporting or are interested: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(21)01609-3/fulltext
