Last week, an activist in Baltimore began writing names of victims of police brutality along the sidewalk. She began with victims killed on January 1st of 2013 and wrote every name that was recorded until the present day. Names stretched from Penn Station to a George Washington monument in the middle of the city, which is nearly a mile in distance.

This was no easy task, on the map below you could see how long this activist, known only as “April” traveled down the road to write all of these names:

To date in 2015, there have been 398 people killed by police in the United States. On the flip-side, 40 officers have died in the line of duty since January 1. Twelve of those officer deaths were the result of automobile accidents, and ten others died from heart attacks.
