    Given all the controversy of black lives matter
    And the suggestions that police are being gunned down because of blm
    I was a bit surprised to read

    Before Monday's shootings, 123 law enforcement officers had been killed in the line of duty in the United States in 2015, compared with 133 in 2014, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, a nonprofit organization "dedicated to honoring America's fallen law-enforcement heroes."

    Excluding accidental shootings, 36 police officers in the United States had been killed by gunfire this year before the killings in Puerto Rico, compared with 47 last year, the organization said.

    So... Actually fewer cop killings this year
    Kinda surprising
    And makes one wonder if the allegations against blm are just invented bs
    Because it does not seem to be founded in any fact

    In general, being a cop is not nearly as dangerous as the hype, in 2014 there were 51 felonious killings of cops which is what people would consider "in the line of duty". The rest were deaths while at work - car accidents, falls, even heart attacks.

    51 is a small number, a small change in such a small number is not significant statistically. But a downward change does not mean BLM is not causing cops to be killed, just that nationally fewer cops were killed.

    When the number of cops beng killed decreases by 20%
    It is pretty hard to find a basis for blaming blm for increased cop kllings
    Although technically you are correct that there may have been some very small impact
    But certainly nothing to justify a mass media hysteria about blm

    There is a big difference between wounded or killed in a shoot out, vs wounded or killed by assassination.

    - - - Updated - - -

    BLM is "calling" for the killing of cops. Any deaths associated with that type of behavior is unprecedented.

    51 cops killed by violence, that is about equal to the amount of people who died as result of cops using supposedly non lethal tazers on them.

    All in all the cops killed about 1000 Americans last year. 33 while in custody.

    Police in the US kill people at a rate of 70 times the rate of other 1st world countries.

    In Norway, the last time a police officer shot and killed somebody was in 2006.

    Police in the US kill more people in 24 days than England and Wales have killed in 24 years.

    German Police killed 15 people over 2 years, the US Police killed 2000 in that same time.

    Clearly our system is broken and we have more to fear from government and police than we do from terrorist's and criminals.
