(RepublicanDaily.org) – Violence against police officers is becoming a worrying trend across the US at the moment. In July, there was a reported 28% increase in felonious officer deaths in 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Considering the persistent unrest across the country since then, it’s likely these statistics have only gotten worse.
Incidents like those we’ve seen in Portland, Seattle, and other cities have become commonplace.

On Tuesday, December 8, University City, Missouri, set the scene for another attack on a law enforcement officer. An assailant in a silver Ford Mustang dispatched a number of shots at a detective in an unmarked car in daylight. Local sources have reported the detective was traveling back from the scene of a homicide at the time of the incident.
Police are still searching for the shooter and fortunately, the detective was not injured in the attack.
The epidemic of violence against our police is an unwelcome symptom of the persistent anti-cop rhetoric on the Left at the moment. Unless Leftists stop their crusade against officers, it is possible that we will continue to see these attacks.
