Over the last few years, the violence against police officers has been on the rise.
In fact, in 2021, murders of police officers rose by 59 percent, with 73 officers shot and killed.
FBI Director Christopher Wray says this level of violence against law enforcement is unprecedented during his time in office.
On the Rise
Violent crime in this country is on the rise across the board.
The murder rate throughout the country went up by 29 percent.
I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure Democrats said all the violence in this country was due to Donald Trump.
Yet, with Biden in office for more than a year, the numbers are going through the roof.
Director Wray stated, “Violence against law enforcement in this country is one of the biggest phenomena that I think doesn’t get enough attention.”
Think about this… every week, at least one officer is being murdered, on average, and that does not even include the shot and wounded officers.
Wray added, “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.”
I will never be able to be convinced that is not a direct result of the Democrat rhetoric that has been spewed since 2016.
When you have elected officials openly calling police officers Nazis and murderers, this is what you get.
Yet, the media will never call Democrats out for this.
