See Kenneth Lawson, Police Shootings of Black Men and Implicit Racial Bias: Can’t We All Just Get Along, 37 U. Haw. L. Rev. 339, 339-40 (2015) (recounting the 2014 “extensive media coverage of police killings of unarmed Black men and boys, including Eric Garner, Michael Brown, John Crawford, Tamir Rice, and Levar Jones”) (footnote omitted). It may be that the counter-narrative is gaining on the default narrative of the brave, conscientious officer: “The release last month of ‘Making a Murderer,’ a 10-part documentary from Netflix, capped a year in which popular culture’s portrayal of the criminal justice system seems to have shifted. Out with the old tropes about truth-seeking investigators and tidy resolutions; in with the disquieting, dysfunctional reality of many courtrooms and police stations.” Griffin, supra note 24.
