Where is the outrage? Everyone, including the fourth estate, should be concerned over the number of police officers who have been ambushed. Two sheriff’s deputies were murdered in Florida recently – gunned down in broad daylight — another ambush attack against the men and women who serve the people. The cops were eating at a Chinese restaurant in the city of Trenton, about 35 miles west of Gainesville, when the shooter walked up and started blasting through a window. The gunman shot both deputies dead and then took his own life.
According to the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund (Respect-Honor-Remember) there has been a 167% increase in police officer ambushes. The amount of ambushes against law enforcement has been climbing over the last 10 years as compared to the previous 50+ – what is behind this rise? How has the profession changed? And what does the future look like? Co-hosts Sgt. Betsy Smith, Jennifer Breedon and DrFaye Wilson shine a light on this growing crisis.
