FBI Releases Report on Police Use of Force

The timing of a new report released by the FBI could not have been worse.

As the public is struggling to deal with the utter failure of the Uvalde Police Department’s response to the active shooter, the FBI has just released a report on police force used.

Additionally, the report documents the rising violence against our police officers.

Two Views

Just by skimming the report, I can already see the numbers that both sides will selectively tout.

To me, the number that immediately popped out was that 73 officers were killed in the line of duty in 2021.

That number is a 20-year-high.

Even more shocking is that roughly half of them had not engaged with their killers in any way before meeting their demise.

Betsy Brantner Smith, a spokesperson for the National Police Association, stated, “One of the reasons that we’re seeing this huge uptick in officer ambushes, unprovoked attacks, is because there is this pervasive false information in the media, by activists, by some politicians, that police officers are a danger to the community.”

She claimed that it is one of the “biggest, most ignored officer safety components in this country right now.”

This is an issue I lie at the feet of Democrats, who have been turning civilians against police for most of the last six years.

The Use-of-Force data is where liberals will look, pointing to that half of the instances resulted in bodily harm, and more than 33 percent of the cases using force resulted in the death of someone.

However, the majority of these instances were caused due to someone breaking the law.

Conservatives will zero in on two lines in the report: “In use-of-force incidents, officers most often encountered individuals who failed to comply with verbal commands or other types of passive resistance.

“Other types of resistance encountered included displaying a weapon at an officer or another individual, attempting to escape or flee custody, using a firearm against an officer or another individual, or resisting being handcuffed or arrested.”

The bottom line… don’t resist. Follow the officer’s commands, and there is a zero percent chance that a conflict ensues that could cost the life of the suspect or the officer.

  1. Every Democrat and RHINO in Congress needs to be Re-Called immediately from serving the American people. Everyone of them are corrupt, committed crimes, have also committed extortion and Treason! There is only one way the American people can rectify their crimes, and that is a total re-call of everyone in Congress and the Senate who have committed these crimes.

  2. If you notice ,,, most of the police shootings ALWAYS start with tree swinging idiot fighting with police . Think back to alot of police shootings , if the convict would NOT have starting fighting , resisting or running and just followed the police commands ,,,,,,, the shooting would have never happened !! The degenerates that resist get what they deserve !!!!!
