Soft people these days
yeah, lack of public support, lack of administrative support, lack of political support, and a lack of media support has resulted in many cops ending their lives. especially when you see a cop do his job, at great risk to his own life and the ignorant masses protest and demand he be criminally charged because the bad guy fights back and tries to hurt the cop, and the bad guy loses. That's the war on cops. your welcome for the education.

Actually, I think most of the time that the term "War on cops" is used, it has nothing to do with deaths by gunfire.
It has more to do with the way they are treated by politicians, members of the media, and civilians in public as the LEOs perform their service.
So, major error in your thought processes, I think.
Anyway, in 2019, there were about 134 officers who lost their lives. 55% were felonious deaths, and 455 were non-felonious. It's a difficult job.
As a police officer this is what I consider war on cops to mean and this is just a few:

BS. I don't believe all these officers are killing themselves. Many are victims of foul play.
