(RightIsRight.co) – Some may call it a coincidence, but many – including most police officers we’ve talked to – don’t believe it’s a coincidence that since Joe Biden was put in the presidency, the killing of police officers has skyrocketed to numbers not seen for many, many years.
As the Daily Wire highlights in “In Biden’s First Year In Office, More Cops Were Intentionally Killed Than Any Year Since 1995: Report”:
“According to an analysis of data collected by the FBI, more police officers were intentionally killed in the line of duty in 2021, President Biden’s first year in office, than any year since 1995.
“The FBI’s LEOKA (law enforcement officers killed in action) data found 73 officers were intentionally killed in 2021, as the Heartland Institute pointed out in their analysis of the data, noting, “We found felonious killings of law enforcement officers skyrocketed in 2021, increasing by more than 58.7 percent in a single year. In 2021, 73 law enforcement officers were feloniously killed, compared to 46 in 2020 and 48 in 2019.'” [emphasis added]
“The Heartland Institute noted, ‘In 2020 and early 2021, numerous efforts to cut police funding or to stop expected budgetary increases were successful, including in cities such as Minneapolis, New York City, and Oakland, among many others. In many cases, however, these decisions were later partially reversed following dramatic increases in crime.'” [emphasis added]
Clearly, something must change in the United States of America if we want to make an inherently dangerous job – professional law enforcement – as safe as possible and remove the deadly target off the backs of cops.
What do you think? Please email [email protected] and share your thoughts and opinions about why so many police officers are being killed in the United States of America. If you could pick one thing to change that you believe would make it less deadly to be a police officer, what would it be?
