Word cloud: Media coverage on local police use of force

Using Wordle.net, we created the word cloud below, which counts the number of times each word is used in the list of programs.

We combined texts recent news stories from local media outlets on Champaign Police's use of force (list of links below), including statements issued from the Illinois State Police and the police union.

This word cloud counts the top 150 words used most often in these texts.

The more often a word appears in these stories, the larger the word appears in the word cloud below. Wordle.net removes common words, such as "the", "and" , and "of" .

The more often a word appears in a name, the larger the word appears in the word cloud below. Wordle.net removes common words, such as "the", "and" , and "of".
