Killing Of Law Enforcement Officers Up 28% During Year Of Intense Unrest

Published

It will probably come as no shock to those of you who read this publication that the murder of police officers in the line of duty has risen sharply this year in light of the increase in tension between folks in the community and law enforcement departments.

Police killings have risen by 28 percent compared to this same time last year, which is a massive increase. Is it any wonder cops are scared to death to go out on the streets and do their jobs right now? This is already a tough job with tons of risk. Imagine how much worse it is during these anti-cop protests that have been going on for months?

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

There have been 32 felonious officer deaths as of July 14, which is up from 25 killings at the same time last year, according to data from the FBI. Seven of the officers were killed in ambushes. The data does not include officers who were accidentally killed while on the job in traffic accidents or other such tragedies.

A report from ABC News found that the uptick in killings of police officers could be connected to the nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody. The report found that more officers have been killed during times of civil unrest.

“Going out on the street and directing violence to somebody who represents the government, because police are an arm of the government, is the easiest thing to do. There is a constant search for the scapegoat for whatever is happening in the society, and the scapegoat ends up being law enforcement regardless of what it is that people have grievances about,” said Maria “Maki” Haberfeld, a professor of police science at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.

There have been several major periods of unrest in recent decades, including the Michael Brown shooting back in 2012 in Ferguson, Missouri, the “Occupy Wall Street” protests, and of course the 2016 Black Lives Matter protests after the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.

Being a police officer is a thankless job, yet these individuals risk their lives to keep our communities safe. And how are they being thanked for their sacrifice? With death. It’s tragic.

Now, there are bad cops out there and even bad departments. These need to be dealt with. Legally. Through the criminal justice system. Not with murder.

Oy vey!

Michelle Obama and other Americans who will vote for Joe Biden in November seem to forget the damage Barack’s administration caused for nearly a full decade. If they weren’t race-baiting or pandering, the members of the team really didn’t know what to do with themselves. The nation is a better place now that the Obamas are out of the spotlight. But that’s not where they want to be. From The Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama claimed that she has been suffering from “low-grade depression” recently, and pinpointed the Trump administration’s response to the nation’s racial problems as a cause. During an interview on her new podcast with Washington Post columnist Michele Norris, Obama said that, like many Americans, the coronavirus pandemic and the turmoil roiling the nation since George Floyd’s death have led her to some low points. CONTINUED: “There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low,” Obama said. “You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.” Claiming she has been experiencing sleep disturbances, Obama continued, “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1290996047104409601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1290996047104409601%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-claims-he-didnt-mean-to-make-racist-comments-about-blacks-despite-doubling-down-fails-to-apologize

He is everywhere – even inside a random Walmart in North Versailles, Pennsylvania. The clip you’ll see below went viral for all the right reasons. You can take the people out of the church, but you can’t take the church out of the people. From Post Millennial: A video of a worship service happening inside a Walmart, reportedly in North Versailles, Pennsylvania, has the internet chirping. The churchgoers took to Walmart to come together in worship, as churches have been closed, but Walmarts are open. WATCH: https://twitter.com/LifeNewsHQ/status/1291411407947407363?s=20 The left has never been a friend of Jesus. How some liberals can consider themselves Christians, while supporting the atrocity that is abortion, makes little to no sense whatsoever. On Monday, Bernie Sanders-supporting radical Shaun King tweeted something he should feel pretty silly about. But he probably doesn’t. From Daily Wire: Shaun King, the controversial Black Lives Matter activist known for pushing false claims, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275106946916499456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275106946916499456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p He then followed it up with this gem… https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275113067555303424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275113067555303424&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p
