This page contains links to articles and posts commenting on AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF RACIAL DIFFERENCES IN POLICE USE OF FORCE (Roland G. Fryer, Jr), Working Paper 22399, NATIONAL BUREAU OF ECONOMIC RESEARCH [https://www.nber.org/papers/w22399.pdf]

The selection of links makes no attempt to be exhaustive, neither does it attempt to be representative of all published content (if for no other reason than most articles regurgitate the New York Times reporting on this paper). I’m particularly interested in analyses based on the paper itself, so if you have an interesting link, please send my way. Apologies to anyone I’ve left out.
