Just got back a review that is so curmudgeonly I can only laugh. Maybe the penultimate remark:

>This paper was one of the most poorly constructed papers I have had the displeasure of reading.

I may have to publicly post this one and my response, as it is a bit beyond the norm for me the vitriol spewed in this one.

Up 1.2 million for awards - mostly many small awards.

Real-time to NIJ means forecasts for 1 to 2 weeks, or 1 to 3 months.

Yep, there are a lot of moving parts to do it publicly in a way that is reasonable.
I’m doing my first preregistered replication. And it’s a lot of work! We’ve been discussing this for awhile—here’s something I published in 2013 in response to proposals by James Moneghan and by Macartan Humphreys, Raul Sanchez de la Sierra, and Peter van der Windt for preregistration in political science, here’s a blog discussion (“Preregistration: what’s …

I've noticed a couple of strange locations as well - via my wife who started to play.

One is a gym in an apartment complex that looks like it used to be a school. The second is a church that you can collect pokeballs. (I saw someone swerve into the church parking lot randomly at one point.)

The street layers are available from TIGER, but I don't think local landmarks (like knowing a place is a church or a school) like that are available from the Census.

The dig at the street layers is not justified, most of the US mapping data is based off of TIGER if you go back far enough, and in most built environments streets change so slowly it is accurate. New apartments though not being inputted for a few decades happens though (how often, I do not know).
Due to data flukes, private homes are being besieged by the game’s players.

A finding that there was no bias against black civilians in police shootings provoked debate, mostly about the volume of police encounters and the scope of the data used.

Cites my (with Scott Phillips) analysis of the deterrent effect of the roadblocks. The map shown is one I made, although it is poorly cited.

Can't comment on whether they are constitutional, but here are a few comments to add to the context:

- we show that BPD are conducting the roadblocks in objectively high crime places
- we show some mixed evidence of a deterrent effect.
- using ALPR's make the road blocks overall less invasive than if they stopped everybody
