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.

CNN host Don Lemon has made it clear over the last four years that he’s not at all a fan of President Donald Trump, nor does he have much love for his supporters. However, his latest rant about the president’s supporters is taking things to a whole new level of deplorable. During his program on Thursday, Lemon compared Trump’s supporters to drug addicts. Lemon’s colleague, Chris Cuomo, joined him on his program where the two attacked the president for continuing to hold political rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, going on to suggest that Trump supporters are beyond help. What kind of help do they need, Don? Please share with the class. via Fox News: “You know what the sad thing is? And I’ll be honest with you … I’ve had many people who I love in my life- and yeah I come from a red state, I’ve lived in several red states, there are a lot of friends who I’ve had to really get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue,” Lemon said. “They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president, they repeat it and they’re blinded by it.” “I had to get rid of them because they’re too far gone. I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points,” Lemon told Cuomo. “I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want…

Dr. Anthony Fauci Claims The United States Is Hardest Hit Country By Coronavirus

Published

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the supposed top expert in the country concerning infectious diseases stated on Thursday that there’s no country on earth hit harder by the coronavirus than the United States. “America has been the worst-hit country in the world, with 8.1 million cases and over 218,000 deaths,” Fauci said. As of Thursday, the U.S. has a total of 8.9 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 with over 228, 602 confirmed deaths. via Washington Examiner: Fauci made his remarks at the West Virginia University’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute. “I feel cautiously optimistic we will have a safe vaccine, even though you can never be certain when it comes to vaccinology,” Fauci added. He also said that 40% of people with the virus are asymptomatic. On Wednesday, during an interview with National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, Fauci suggested that the U.S. will not return to normal until 2022. “There will be a graded, gradual progression toward normalcy” in 2022, the doctor said. The truth of the matter is, this country cannot continue to live in a permanent state of lockdown. Society will crumble if folks aren’t able to get back to life as normal. It seems the radical left is all about keeping things locked down and masks on people’s faces, which doesn’t have anything to do with keeping folks from getting sick. It has everything to do with control. And what better way to strip people of power than to make them scared and willing to trade liberty for a false sense of security? Fear makes it very easy to justify all kinds of intrusions that we’d normally never accept. People will either respond to all of this by cowering in fear, or we’ll just simply stop listening to these “professionals” and just start living. Time will tell…
