The National Fraternal Order of Police reports that in the first quarter of 2022, 101 police officers were shot in the line of duty, 17 fatally. That represents a 43% increase over the same time period in 2021, and a 63% increase over 2020.
I think it is fair to infer that the [Only] Black Lives Matter scam and associated anti-police sentiment is responsible for increased violence against law enforcement, along with the general atmosphere of lawlessness that prevails in many large cities as a result of left-wing prosecutors and other city officials.
It is also worth asking how many of the 17 officers murdered so far in 2022 you can name. I can’t name one. I don’t suppose any will have monuments erected to them, or streets and college scholarships named after them like the career criminal and drug addict George Floyd.
We live in a sick society, and it is increasingly reasonable to ask why people should put their lives on the line to defend it.
