You nailed it! There is a conspiracy going on across this nation to kill police officers. It's a sad thing to see the lack of respect and the hatefulness towards these officers. Of course there are bad ones, but the good ones far out weigh the bad ones. I stand with our good police officers.

So sad for the families, friends, fellow officers, and community. This will make 27 killed in the line of duty this year with 17 by gunfire. (ODMP.org) In 2015 (latest figures) there were over 51,000 assaults on officers with over 14,000 injuries. If the media doesn't stop police bashing by second guessing every officer's action, promoting an us-against-them mentality, and assuming hateful intent by police, this will just get worse. If people don't start backing law enforcement they'll find less officers coming to help when they dial that phone.

The people they kill generally are the ones trying to kill them. Shut the fuck up with this nonsense.

And that’s not just an opinion, it’s a statistical trend. The majority, roughly 99% are in self defense. Cut it with this bullshit because it’s having actual consequences on police.
