How to start doing research?
I start doing research by looking up the topic that I am doing and read lots of different articles.
I have been told not to use Wikipedia because of the information on that website is not reliable because people can go in and change the information at any time. Another reason is that a lot of people like to copy and paste from Wikipedia.
Topic: Police Brutality
The way how I started my research was seeing what the percentile rank of police brutality was like each year to see how many people are killed by a police officer.
Second I looked up the most recent police brutality case that is ongoing.
Third I looked up to see how much of these officers get indicted for that they do.
The links that I followed was https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/21/us/willie-mccoy-police-shooting.html?rref=collection%2Ftimestopic%2FPolice Brutality and Misconduct&action=click&contentCollection=timestopics®ion=stream&module=stream_unit&version=latest&contentPlacement=1&pgtype=collection
What made me hit the first link was because it told me how many black unarmed teenagers were killed by police officers each year and what made me click on the second link was because I had heard about the young man that was shot and killed.
However, I stayed on this page for about ten minutes. And this information was very useful to me because it told me the numbers of unarmed black teenagers that were killed by police officers each year.
