Cop Being Killed Are Down But Cops Killing People Are Up
In 2013, some of the year's biggest headlines involved cop killers. There was MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, who authorities said was shot and killed by the Tsarnaev brothers after the Boston Marathon bombings in April. There was Christopher Dorner's vengeful rampage across Southern California in February. Two of the four people he killed were police officers. Yet those tragedies would prove the exceptions in 2013, which may have been one of the safest years in modern history for American police. According to a preliminary report by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund released Monday, 111 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in 2013, the lowest number since 1959. Most of the deaths came in traffic accidents, said the nonprofit, which tracks law enforcement deaths and maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington. The most dramatic number in the report may be the 33 officers killed by gunfire, the lowest number since 1887, when the country's population was more than four times smaller than it is today. It's also a steep drop from two years ago, when 71 officers were shot and killed on the job in 2011. A majority of 2013's shooting deaths came from handguns, most often during an ambush. Such a fatal attack happened last week, on Dec. 23, when a suspected bank robber killed a police officer and critically wounded another officer on a roadway in Tupelo, Miss., authorities said. The suspect, Mario Edward Garnett, 40, was killed in a shootout with Phoenix police after another bank robbery in Arizona on Saturday. http://www.latimes.com/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-police-deaths-20131230,0,2076517.story#ixzz2p1Nh0CUl
