I’m D. Brian Burghart, a journalist who was offended by the government’s lack of statistics on police-involved deaths, so I started the Fatal Encounters website. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2977/im-d-brian-burghart-a-journalist-who-was-offended Commuting home from my work at the Reno, Nevada, alt-weekly newspaper, the Reno News & Review, on May 18, 2012, I drove past the aftermath of a police shooting—in this case, that of a man named Jace Herndon. Curious how often a police officer kills someone in the line of duty, I went home, cracked a bottle of wine, and took to the internet. It was that moment that it first began to dawn on me that the government does not track how many people it kills domestically—even though it pretends to.

I decided to track that information because I believed if we could compare outcomes for related situations, training, policies and protocols could be modified so fewer people—cops and those they protect and serve—would die.You’ll be surprised at what I’ve already found.

I’m an alt-weekly editor, a master’s student, and the administrator of the nation’s largest database about deadly police violence, Fatal Encounters. Here’s my proof. Ask me anything.

Luc Besson here, AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2968/luc-besson-here-ama Hi Reddit!

I am generally secretive about my personal life and my work and i don't express myself that often in the media, so i have seen a lot of stuff written about me that was incomplete or even wrong. Here is the opportunity for me to answer precisely to any questions you may have.

I directed 17 films, wrote 62, and produced 120. My most recent film is Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman.

Proof

I am here from 9am to 11am (L.A time)

FINAL UPDATE: Guys, I'm sorry but i have to go back to work. I was really amazed by the quality of your questions, and it makes me feel so good to see the passion that you have for Cinema and a couple of my films. I am very grateful for that. Even if i can disappoint you with a film sometimes, i am always honest and try my best. I want to thank my daughter Shanna who introduced me to Reddit and helped me to answer your questions because believe it or not i don't have a computer!!!

This is us

Sending you all my love, Luc.

Ps: If we find some time later, we will try answering a few more questions.

I run an underground metal label AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2969/i-run-an-underground-metal-label-ama I've run a small UK based independent record label for nearly a year now. We focus on underground metal, and have 5 releases out so far. People always seem interested in the day-to-day running of a label, and bands are always asking for advice, so I figured why not do an AMA (which will also help me work out this Reddit thing)!

I lost my leg in the Haiti earthquake. Now I'm competing the in the Paraclimbing World Championships. AMA http://www.topiama.com/r/2975/i-lost-my-leg-in-the-haiti-earthquake-now-im My short bio: My name is Christa Brelsford. I've been a climber since I was 12 years old, and lost my right leg on January 12th, 2010 in the Haiti earthquake. In the last 4.5 years, I got married, ran a half marathon, finished my Ph.D in Sustainability, and had a baby. In September, I'll represent the USA at the Paraclimbing World Championships in Gijon, Spain. The world championships are an opportunity to celebrate what I am still capable of doing and also live out the promise I made to my friends in Haiti, to make sure their kids have access to the same quality education I'd want my own kids to have, by raising funds for Haiti Partners, a non-profit dedicated to helping Haitians change Haiti through education.

I am Gov. Gary Johnson, Honorary Chairman of the Our America Initiative. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2958/i-am-gov-gary-johnson-honorary-chairman-of-the I am Gov. Gary Johnnson. I am the founder and Honorary Chairman of Our America Initiative. I was the Libertarian candidate for President of the United States in 2012, and the two-term Governor of New Mexico from 1995 - 2003.

I’ve been referred to as the 'most fiscally conservative Governor' in the country, and vetoed so many bills that I earned the nickname "Governor Veto." I bring a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, and believe that individual freedom and liberty should be preserved, not diminished, by government. I'm also an avid skier, adventurer, and bicyclist. I have currently reached the highest peaks on six of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.

For more information, please visit my organization's website: OurAmericaInitiative.com. You can also follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Tumblr.

IamA 40yr old who quit IT & signed up at college to pursue science - Evolutionary Anthropology/Archaeology - and worked 2 months in a North American site that may be U.S. oldest AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/2964/iama-40yr-old-who-quit-it-signed-up-at-college-to My short bio: I worked in IT for many years and obtained many standard IT certifications. One day, I quit and headed over to the local college to pursue a long time interest. I am currently in my final semester and gearing up for grad school. The purpose of my AMA is for anyone, especially older students, who wonder about the college process, archaeology, academics, and anything relative. I believe that there are many brilliant people who don't pursue dreams because they think their age is a barrier and/or have no idea of where to start. I'll be happy to answer any questions on my experiences (good/bad), archaeology, evolution, and tips I learned to actually make it in the field/grad school

I'm film director David Mackenzie. My latest film "Starred Up" is opening just this week. AMA. http://www.topiama.com/r/2965/im-film-director-david-mackenzie-my-latest-film It's my eighth feature film. And I'm very proud of it. Trailer here. Read more on the film here. The script was written by Jonathan Asser, a pioneer of an amazing therapy technique for violent prisoners in a London jail. And a lot of the detail in the film is very authentic, and we tried our hardest to film it as realistically as possible. We filmed it in a real jail, in Belfast, Ireland.

I'm here with Victoria to answer your questions. AMA.

retweet: https://twitter.com/IDTweeps/status/504650935592054785

update: Well, I think it's time to wrap it up now. Thank you very much for all your comments and questoins. It's been a very enjoyable experience. I've never done this kind of thing before, and was nervous about it, but it's been relaxing and good fun. And thank you to Victoria for being the fingers to my voice and for making the whole thing really cool. I'd be delighted if anyone wants to see STARRED UP - obviously I'd prefer it if it was through legitimate channels that will actually end up supporting the film. Much appreciated all of the goodwill!
