    A FB post from a cop-buddy of mine

    I knew thing are rough out there, but a facebook post from a good friend of mine (a sheriff's depty.) caught my attention. I just thought I'd share........

    Since Jan 1, 2011, 53 officers have been shot at, 37 were hit, 14 of those being in a 36 hour period (at least 5 from Florida), 10 have died and 2 remain in critical condition. To my Brothers and Sisters IN that thin blue line circle, stay alert, stay vigilant, stay strong, and GO HOME SAFELY EVERY SINGLE NIGHT

    To ALL our first responders, ya'll be careful out there, watch yours (and you brothers/sisters) six's, get back from your watch safe and sound!

    Way too many LEOs have been killed and/or inured by shooters already this year. May the rest of you out there stay safe at work and home.

    Got this same post...one cousin is a WV State Trooper, the other is a DNR officer (fish and game), his sister is an FBI Police Officer, and I am a probation officer. Its has been a very bad year this year for LEO, hope and pray it slows down.

    It's crazy out there, and I don't blame LEOs for being "cautious" in the extreme.

    It appears the statistics don't bear out the idea that there is a war on cops going on.

    It still pays to pay attention and do what you have to do to get home at the end of your shift!

    You have to watch out on those stats...... they are not telling you "from what". Police officers getting SHOT and killed on the job have not risen, they fluctuate up and down the same each year and are around the same levels. What has changed is, more officers are dying in car crashes and traffic accidents .... that's what caused the "rise" in deaths.

    They are "painting " the statistics, hoping you will jump to the conclusion they want you to.....
