Police Fatality Statistics Show 2012 On Pace To Be Safest Year For Police In 60 Years

It’s been a little more than a year since media outlets and police organizations first started reporting about a mounting “war on cops.” Law enforcement officials and commentators blamed budget shortfalls, anti-government sentiment, gun ownership and other causes for the rising violence against police.

We’re now about halfway through 2012, and this year is on pace to be the safest ever for America’s police officers. Oddly, no one is reporting it.

The truth is, the widely reported “war on cops” in 2010 and 2011 was exaggerated. Overall police fatalities did rise in 2010 and then again in 2011, but those figures are compared to 2009, which saw the fewest number of police fatalities since 1959. Generally speaking, police fatalities have been steadily declining since the early 1990s, along with the overall crime rate. And that’s merely the raw number of deaths. Over the same period, the total number of police officers in America has also increased. So the drop in the fatality rate has been even more dramatic.

ADDED: As we’ve pointed out here many times… the cops are lying about, and misrepresenting the data to the public. They are doing this intentionally. They want the public to honestly believe there is a war on cops. And the media is dutifully reporting these lies…

While there is no war on the cops. There is strong evidence to support the theory that the cops have declared war on the public…
