🎧 Attacks on Police Rise Dramatically
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.
