Police Deaths Rose Dramatically in 2016
“So far, 130 officers have died nationwide.”
Donald Trump earned tremendous support from the law enforcement community by promising to stand up for its members. They need an advocate like Trump in the White House. Recent reports indicate that the number of police deaths has risen significantly since 2015.
FOX News reported:
60 law enforcement officers fatally shot this year, 20 in ambushes, report says
A total of 60 law enforcement officers have died in firearms-related incidents in 2016, marking a 67 percent increase since 2015, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund reported.
Citing a preliminary report from January 1 through November 23, the organization said that Texas has seen the most fatalities this year with 18. So far, 130 officers have died nationwide.
The worst single attack was in July, when a black military veteran killed five white officers at a protest in Dallas — the deadliest day for American law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001. Ten days later, a former Marine killed three Baton Rouge, Louisiana, police officers.
San Antonio Detective Benjamin Marconi was the 60th officer shot to death this year, compared with 41 in all of 2015, and the 20th to die in an ambush-style attack, compared with eight last year, Craig W. Floyd, president of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, said.
An ambush-style attack does not necessarily involve someone lying in wait for police officers; it’s any shooting designed to catch police off guard and put them at a disadvantage, Floyd said.
“There usually is an element of surprise and concealment involved,” he said, and it’s unprovoked.

All part of the Obama/Jarrett/Soros plan.
But The Donald wasn’t.
Obama/Jarrett/Soros were lame enough to bet the house on an incompetent putz named Hillary Clinton.
Abortion rites. Life is cheap. Law, morality are negotiable in a Pro-Choice society. Besides, the goal is class diversity (i.e. colorful clumps of cells), not diversity.

RIP To those officers. Aleister PURPOSELY leaves out the most important part.
The rise in police officer killings is police killings by White cop killers.
From Oct 28 – now 16 cops were killed. 1 Native Alaskan 2 Black 13 White.
Until LEOs and media people focus on white cop killers the way they do black cop killers,the increase will continue.
M1, please show me where the police care what color the person trying to kill them is. The media continues to race bait both ways. The police couldn’t give a crap.
Sheriff David Clarke will go on tv on if a cop is killed by a black person( Shannon Miles,Gavin Long, Micah Johnson and Ismaaly Brinley) and condemn that Black cop killer. As he should. Sheriff David Clarke however will not go on tv if a cop is killed by a white cop killer(Scott Michael Greene, Herschel Jones III,Billy Jones, Doug Nitro) and condemn that white cop killer. Clarke will condemn the killing of officers by Black people anywhere in the USA. On Oct 30 a fellow Wisconsin LEO named Dan Glaze was killed by a white cop killer named Doug Nitek. Clarke was silent on the death of a fellow Wisconsin LEO. The only reason I can determine is that this LEO(Glaze)was killed by a white cop killer. Otherwise,why was he silent?
You are correct about the media race baiting. Both the liberal and conservative media do it( this site included.) If you can go to Blue Lives Matter.com and look for the post written by Jason Sondron. It is a tribute to his dad Patrick Sondron,who was killed in the line of duty. Pay attention to the part where he describes his father’s killer. I could say more but read the post.
