The War On Cops

Regular readers know I come from a law enforcement family, and am supportive of ‘the police’ in general.  No one who stands with The Blue Line should be subjected to abuse, criminal violence or murder.

After all, they are the men (and women) on the street representing the government and it’s laws (theoretically, anyway…).

HOWEVER…

I stand against violations of the Bill of Rights, and the ongoing militarization of police.  We need Reed and Malloy, not jackbooted, masked thugs!

I’m not a fan of propaganda, either…

With the “war on cops” narrative on the rise again, you might be wondering: When it comes to lethal violence against police officers, how does 2015 stack up against other years? Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute took a look at the annual number of cops who died of non-accidental gunshots, as measured by the Officer Down Memorial Page. This year isn’t over yet, obviously, but if the trend thus far continues, 2015’s rate will be higher than 2013’s. It will also be lower than every other year since 1870:
