(CNSNews.com) - Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday expressed sorrow and anger at the escalating number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, including at least 71 killed by "gun violence."
"We can, and we must, do even more" to protect law enforcers," Holder told the spring meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General in Washington.
"Just as I promised last year, protecting the safety of our law enforcement officers has been, and will continue to be, a key area of focus for the Justice Department," Holder said.
Holder noted that 177 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty last year, a 16 percent increase from 2010. "And 71 of these officers were killed by gun violence," he said.
"I am sorry and, quite frankly, I am angry to report that, since the beginning of 2012, we have mourned the loss of an additional 24 law enforcement officers."

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Angry...that people, particulalry Issa...is making such a big deal of it.
He should be held for treason, nailed to a sign on the US side of the border facing south, with a big target painted on his chest.
And yet if Holder were to be pulled over by a cop for speeding he would be screaming, “F$#@you you cracker pig! Do you know who I am, pig? DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!!!?”
PURE evil is what these people are.
Holder you POS ... Tell that to agent Terry family....
Damn, this guy makes my blood boil ....
I think you’ll find there are a lot more than 71 unarmed innocent civilians shot each year by cops.
And the cops walk away with no penalty... I think that the cops brought much of this on themselves. You live by the sword, you die by the sword.
He must be talking about Mexican police officers. Only 38 police officers died last year, 16 by gunfire.
You can start by not giving guns to Mexican drug gangs, you sanctimonious, hypocritical, lying bag of dog crap.
“If I had to do it again, I would, but I would not get caught. I am ever so sorry for getting caught.”
Jaime Zapata and Brian Terry don’t know what you’re talking about, withHolder.
Are the republicans still doing anything about this? Is Holder going to get away with F&F?
So stop giving the drug cartels and their handmaidens guns, a.h.!!!
My intense loathing and hatred for d***Holder increases by leaps and bounds.
Where is this going to end? And how?
If people have the right to defend themselves and stop allowing government authorities to co op that right, we don’t need to live in a police state. Less LEO an more personal responsibility will solve the problem.
