I did read the charts. The number of police killed is only down 38%. That is a time period where deaths of workers in general are down 58%. And somehow police still don't make the top 10 most dangerous occupations. Police work wasn't among the most dangerous 40 years ago. It isn't among the most dangerous today.

The charts show what you said is nonsense. I could just as easily point to the required use of body armor for most police officers as the reason for the reduction of deaths. But you are ignoring that the majority of police deaths don't occur from shootings. More were killed by auto accident or being struck by an auto than were killed by being shot, stabbed or strangled. The biggest reason for the decrease in officer deaths has been better vehicles and vehicle safety.

When we look at the actual numbers the percent of police officers killed by gunfire has remained about the same from the 1970 to today. Since gunfire makes up less then 50% of police deaths, to argue that tactics training is the main reason for the decrease in deaths is bull ****.

Your statistics are BULLSHIT and you are a LIAR.
The above stats...EACH AND EVERY ONE of these deaths are backed up with the name, agecy and circumsatnces of the officers death.

That should read, "Line of Duty Deaths: 105 (2013)" Not 2012 in the above post.

Rodney King is a perfect example. The defense for the cops walked the jury through the video: See. Each time they kick his head or pummel his belly, he twitches. A sure sign he is trying to kill them. Naturally, in the face of such persuasive evidence, the jury had to find the poor cops innocent. Rolling Eyes

The twitching in the final 20 seconds is not what impressed the jury.

What impressed the jury was the fact that Rodney King repeatedly got up and tried to violently assault the cops, over and over and over again.

What happened to those poor cops was a travesty. Yes it was technically wrong that the cops continued to hit him for 20 seconds after he stopped resisting. But considering that they had just been defending themselves from a sustained violent assault, it is understandable that they were not able to instantly turn off the adrenaline.

I see you have decided to stop using decades and resorted to cherry picking specific years.

Line of Duty Deaths: 280 (1973)
Gunfire: 140

Line of Duty Deaths: 105 (2012)
