Because this is about collecting data so they can prove cops are evil mean people who kill millions of innocent people every year.
What is the purpose of you wanting the data base if I may ask? or did I hit the nail on the head?

Wouldn't it be just as helpful, if not more to the world
to compile everyone in the world that the Islamic State IS has beheaded, tortured, crucified?

This is whats leading to the deaths of so many civilians:
“[I]f the individual is no longer to be sovereign, if the police can pick him up whenever they do not like the cut of his jib, if they can ‘seize’ and ‘search’ him in their discretion, we enter a new regime. The decision to enter it should be made only after a full debate by the people of this country.”—U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.
Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution.

Here is a list of recent supreme court decisions that have taken us to where were at. These are not all of the decisions but many of them.
This link would make a great thread.
