This is horrible.
The number of police officers intentionally rammed by vehicles, killed by gunfire, or stabbed to death has increased over 40% throughout the first six months of 2021 compared to last year as crime in major cities in the United States continues to rise, a review by the Washington Examiner found.
A total of 38 law enforcement personnel have been killed so far this year, equating to a 41% increase compared to data from 2020, according to tabulations made by the Officer Down Memorial Page. By June 19 of last year, 27 officers were pronounced dead in circumstances considered homicides out of a total of 50 who died in a similar fashion throughout 2020 as a whole.
What do you expect when you demoralize and demonize every law enforcement officer in the nation?
Just a few of these included:
- Iowa Correctional Officer Robert McFarland – Beaten to death with a hammer
- Sgt. Dominic Vaca of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department – Shot during an ambush while pursuing a motorcyclist
- Officer Dominic Jared Winum of the Stanley Police Department in Virginia – Shot multiple times during a traffic stop before he could exit his vehicle
- U.S. Capitol Police Officer William Evans – Rammed by man's car before the perp jumped out with a knife
This insanity has real consequences:
In addition to the rise in killed police officers, alarming crime surges have been noted throughout the country over the past few months. In New York City, authorities for the month of May reported a 73% increase in shooting incidents, a 47% uptick in robbery, and a 21% jump in felony assault when paired with data from the same time frame in 2020.
In Atlanta, murder is up 58%, rape has risen 98%, aggravated assault has seen a 28% jump, thefts from vehicles surged 27%, and the rate of grand theft auto is up 36% so far in 2021, compared to police statistics from 2020. Similar trends have been noted by police in Baltimore, where nonfatal shootings have risen 16%, gun-related homicides are up 9%, and attempted rape rose 44% so far in 2021, in contrast to 2020.
This is the America that Biden and other lefties wanted.
Like I said, horrible.
