America is beginning to figure out that a significant plank in the Democratic Party’s political platform is … killing cops.
Since a full-force coordinated effort to boost hatred of police began in 2020 with the death of George Floyd – coordinated between Democratic politicians and the big news media – the nation has seen a 59 percent increase in the murders of police officers, with 73 officers killed in 2021.
FBI director Christopher Wray addressed the statistic in an interview aired on CBS’ 60 Minutes on April 24 and reported on by Axios.
When the CBS reporter asked Wray what was behind the sharp rise in crime in general, Wray replied that it was the pandemic, more juveniles committing violent crime, more interstate gun trafficking, more of “the worst of the worst getting back out on the streets.”
Meanwhile, law enforcement officers are being killed at “a rate of almost one every five days,” Wray said.
“Violence against law enforcement in this country is one of the biggest phenomena that I think doesn’t get enough attention,” he said. Some of it is tied to the violent crime problem as a whole. But one of the phenomena that we saw in the last year is that an alarming percentage of the 73 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty last year were killed through things like being ambushed or shot while out on patrol. … Wearing the badge shouldn’t make you a target.”
The National Fraternal Order of Police has reported that shootings of cops are up 43 percent so far in 2022, with 101 officers targeted in the first quarter alone.
It’s all because of greater disorder on our streets, the outlawing of proactive policing and a hatred for cops fueled by shameful progressive politicians, stated The New York Post in an editorial.
“Make no mistake: The whole anti-police narrative is fundamentally a lie. Minority Americans benefited most from the country’s success in driving down crime. New York City alone saw murders drop from 2,262 in 1990 to 292 in 2017 — which translates to tens of thousands of mostly black and Hispanic lives saved,” the Post’s editorial staff stated.
