I wonder how many convenience store workers were killed in the line of duty last year.
Still doesn’t crack the top 10 list of most dangerous jobs. The guy fixing your leaky roof is many times more likely to get killed on the job than a LEO.
I wonder how big the wedge for “attempting to seized guns” will be next year?
One statistic missing from this article. How many of these police officers were killed by a concealed carry permit holder? Answer ZERO
I wonder how many family pets they killed.
I bet more unarmed citizens were killed by police than the other way around...
I guess I can’t get all that worked up about this.

The ultimate sacrifice might be losing your life in the line of duty, but the penultimate sacrifice might be working for a salary or wage set by the people you serve (without a union) and paying for your own disability, retirement, and medical benefits out of that.
Here in Pittsburgh they are searching for some yutes who posted a rap video on YouTube in which they threatened to kill several police officers (and the officers were mentioned by name).
Seems this behavior has been encouraged by recent developments. Can’t imagine what /sarc
Zakeet, thank you for your post, but as you can see, you might as well had posted the article on a forum directed to a group of prison inmates.
Two things I don’t like on FR: People who think it’s alright whatever cops do (although there are few here who do) and those that have gotten to the point of hating cops. Both will go at each other on this thread.
How many innocent citizens were killed by cops last year?
