Late this spring, the publisher Spiegel & Grau sent out advance copies of a new book by Ta-Nehisi Coates, a slim volume of 176 pages called Between the World and Me. “Here is what I would like for you to know,” Coates writes in the book, addressed to his 14-year-old son. “In America, it is traditional to destroy the black body — it is heritage.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

This is a national organization dedicated to tracking the number of officers killed in the line of duty, promoting awareness of the dangers to law enforcement and commemorating those slain in the line of duty.
