Going forward though my counter-offensive plan is to post a good news story for every bad news story I see, and I think with the videos are harder for people to just explain away than are statistics that on this subject nobody seems to trust and don't seem to sway anyone. With a video or 911 transcript my hope is that seeing/hearing is believing.
It would be more impressive if you weren't repeating incidents already.

Plus you're not achieving anywhere close to a 1:1 ratio, even with the fact that you're going back in time to contrast with contemporary reports.
