This is a list that the Stolen Lives Project in the Bay Area has compiled of people who were killed by police or other law enforcement in Northern California, from 2001-2004. I left some names out because I was unable to find more details about their deaths,a nd I am sure that there are others who have been killed. Please email me if you know of other people who were killed, or if you have corrections about any of these entries. We are also seeking longer entries that will go into the next edition of the book Stolen Lives: Killed by Law Enforcement
