A client for The Guardian's database of United States police killings.

To build, clone the repository and run cargo build, or download from the releases.

The tool can emit either human readable or CSV output (with -v or --csv). Given no arguments (or --all), it fetches the entire database. To see filters, give --help at the command line.


A single filter:

$ ./counted --age 13
Tyre King, 13yo Black Male in Columbus, OH

Multiple filters:

$ ./counted --city "San Diego" --age 30
Joshua Sisson, 30yo White Male in San Diego, CA
Thongsoune Vilaysane, 30yo Asian/Pacific Islander Male in San Diego, CA

Many filters, CSV output:
