war on cops

Is this a short-lived epidemic or is this just the beginning of a new normal for America?
Ronald Davis, now a Justice Department official, said the suggestion cops are standing down is an insult.
In the seventh year of Bush's presidency, there were 77 cop killings, by our definition. So far this year, Obama's seventh in office, there have been 35. Statistically speaking, we're on pace for a total of 52 in 2015, which would be the lowest total in this century.
