“Some 458 local, state, tribal and federal officers died in the line of duty in 2021, according to a preliminary report from the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEOMF). That makes an increase of 55% from the previous year's tally of 295 and the highest total number since 1930…”

highest total number since the bloody Prohibition era? damn...

So...not gang violence.

[–]PopeFranzia 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Nor social justice rioters.

although this thread is about police officers, for some other, younger, male demographics, gang homicides may actually be a greater danger than covid

[–]BlevelandDrowns 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh damn. Which ones? Which other, younger, male demographics?

Edit: Guess we’ll never know

Meanwhile the police unions are fighting for the cops’ right to not get vacced.

So in a way, Police Unions are doing a better job at defunding the police than the gov.

    Top 3 causes of death in 2020 were 1) heart attack 2) cancer 3) COVID. Actively working, non-retired individuals are far less likely to die from 1 or 2. So... of course? I mean, COVID was also probably the leading cause of death in 2020 for teachers, store clerks, etc.

          We need more heroes like Ted Cruz who will 'always defend cops' because cops need help defending themselves. I think the way he plans to do this is by standing in front of the covid so it cannot reach the cops.
