“Packratt,” the blogger who runs the Injustice Everywhere blog and Injustice News Twitter feed that tracks police misconduct, is stopping because he has run into some financial problems. That’s too bad. He was providing a great service. He shouldn’t apologize, though. It’s tough to keep up a site out of sheer determination. This site has never really made any money, either, but it sort of fits in with what I do for a living, so I look at it as part of my job. That wasn’t always the case, though. The first few years of the blog were done really as a hobby. All of that said, Packratt’s work is much appreciated.
