FBI Report Accidentally Exposes the Severity of the Police State..(poor title but interesting stats)

Another stat I actually did a thread on was based on deaths per 100,000 working in a particular job.. Cops have the same death rate as gardeners ... That will hurt some cop show watching egos who wear a badge..



The report found that across the entire country, only 76 LEOs were killed in “line-of-duty” incidents. 27 died as a result of “felonious” acts and 49 officers died in accidents–namely, automobile (ironically, of the 23 killed in car accidents, 14 were not wearing seat belts–a violation for which cops routinely ticket drivers). More officers die from accidents than actual murders on the job. The report also outright admits that intentional murders of cops were down from 2004 and 2009.


www.activistpost.com...


However, considering how well cops are armed and how efficiently the justice system protects them from prosecution for their crimes, they prove to be paranoid. 27 police officers in a country with over 300 million people died last year. Law enforcement deaths-by-murder are included in the 49,851 “assaults” against officers, which means that .05 (half a percent) died as a result of alleged attacks. Crime against cops has dropped to a 50 year low. It’s more dangerous to drive a car than be a cop (this is bolstered by the fact that the number of cops who died in car accidents almost equals the total number of cops murdered–23 to 27).


How many times have we seen 'assaulted the officer' in a police report that when the secret video appears the 'assault report' is totally bogus ? Kinda like resisting arrest for asking a question, no?

The FBI web sight list all recent Police officers killed in the line of duty; the reports are based on the local police reports which we have all seen to be slightly fabricated at times.... No one should ever think the job of policing is without danger... It is ! However, the cycle of crime between police and pedestrians with lies from both sides (yes I said both sides!) could be stopped if police wore cameras which could not be tampered with..by them... It is almost as if some power wants the public to distrust the police and hate ? Either way this needs to stop before there is a bounty placed on cops by people with an axe to grind.. which hopefully no thinking person wants to see..

A 38-year-old detective and a 51-year-old sergeant with the Santa Cruz Police Department were killed while attempting an arrest around 3:25 p.m. on February 26. The detective, a 10-year veteran of law enforcement, and the sergeant, a 28-year veteran of law enforcement, went to the residence of a man to obtain a statement concerning a sexual assault in which the man was reported as a suspect. On February 22, the suspect had been arrested for public intoxication at the residence of a co-worker. Reportedly, the suspect had been out with a group that night, including the co-worker. The suspect parted company with them, but ended up back at the co-worker’s residence and refused to leave. The officers who responded that night jailed the suspect for 5 hours and then released him. The following day, a woman who had been at the residence reported that the man had sexually assaulted her during the incident that led to his arrest for public intoxication.

Being a police officer is NOT a dangerous job. It is grossly over exaggerated and is nonsense! The protective gear combined with how well armed they are and the training they go through makes it in fact anything but dangerous.

In the US

Seventy-one aircraft pilots and flight engineers were killed on the job in 2012


This article the OP posts clearly stats that in a round about way. Being a cop is SAFE. not even in the top ten most dangerous jobs in the US.

Well there's two things we do know.

One, many more of our soldiers die fighting in the middle east, in the line of duty and are under much more of a threat to their lives than cops here.

Two, even with the fact our soldiers face far greater danger, they treat citizens and suspects in many of these countries, smack in the middle of war zones, better than cops treat citizens and suspects here.

So we end up with cops pretending they're soldiers, often militarized, in an environment far safer than ones our actual soldiers face, and due to our cops not being well trained or being flat out unqualified, they don't handle the much safer streets in America anywhere near as well as actual soldiers do in true war zones where thousands of their colleagues have lost their life.

We've seen numerous soldiers/vets come out and say they couldn't get away with a lot of what they see our cops doing to our citizens while in full on combat zones.

Our entire law enforcement structure needs to be stripped down to its foundation and rebuilt. The entire system and culture within that system is criminal.

Quoted this in another thread recently. The 2012 (I think it was) on the job death rates were:
1.5 per 100,000 for police
3.5 per 100,000 for the average job
39 per 100,000 for pizza delivery drivers
151 per 100,000 for loggers.

Being a police officer is one of the safest jobs in the US, yet they get to routinely abuse us in the name of officer safety.

When doing minimum research on the danger cops face compared to the danger cops dish out is completely unbalanced. Just looking on wiki you get a list of murders by police which is frightening. In the list you get the reasons for the murders (not on all of them). When you start to read some of these you get an idea of what the hell is going on..

keith koster (54) mentally ill man killed in a standoff when situation was under control.

Grace Louise Denk (21) suffering depression killed sitting in her car. Coroner tried to cover up by saying she killed herself but went against the police officers account she raised a gun to them.

Caleb Surface (23) shot in the neck twice as wouldnt remove hands frome his pockets. The officer thought he had a gun, when actually it was a phone.

Keith Vidal (18) having a schizophrenic episode and wouldnt drop a screwdriver. He was tasered and killed.

jack Keewatinawin (21) Took his father hostage with a knife and tried to escape. He threatened an officer with a PIPE....he was killed.


This was only in on month and there are many more that are situations that should have been handled better. It is clear these people are not trained to deal with these situations. They have a shoot first ask questions late, and are protected by the law to perform in this manner.

Thanks all for the replies:
Judge , Jury, and Executioners... We have a legal system that is suppose to rely on those before mentioned.. Not someone or group with vengeance on their mind..

Like a video that shows some dufuss kid who tried to run from the cops and flips his car and is ejected... 5 cops swarm the body and beat the crap out of the almost unconscious body.. Not their job.. cuff, apprehend, arrest etc etc.. Not their job for a little payback.. Not only would I fire them but I would bring them up on assault charges.. It ain't their job, period !

The previous 9 years average nearly 54 deaths.

Including the abnormal 2013 figure makes the average over 10 years 51.

Kinda changes the perspective slightly when the actual, long term number pretty much doubles.

Yea it does change perspectives

It means it's slightly more dangerous to be a cop than a pizza delivery man

Very telling

Maybe it's the areas. The officers that I have called, numerous of times, never tried to taze my niece, or did any kind of brute force. They knew she had a problem, and they worked with her. They refused to taze her, even when I said one night ,to taze her. That's how out of control she was.I thank those officers for getting me through school, work, and dealing with her at the same time. It wasn't easy. Way too stressful for me. My niece is autistic.

There's also this site which shows deaths and some basic causes, with some documentation on how it happened.
Officer Down Memorial Page
Here's their figures for the last 20 years. This isn't just gunfire, but accidents, killed friendly fire, etc.
2014 (so far): 106
2013: 105
2012: 126
2011: 179
2010: 177
2009: 140
2008: 159
2007: 203
2006: 161
2005: 166
2004: 166
2003: 150
2002: 159
2001: 242 (9/11 - Terrorist attack: 72; subsequent years have some succumbing to illness/injury from 9/11)
2000: 164
1999: 151
1998: 178
1997: 178
1996: 143
1995: 186
1994: 183

The average over that time frame is 165.8/yr.

165.8 sounds like a lot until you consider that there's 900,000 police officers which brings that number way down. Much lower than the guy delivering pizza. Once you exclude traffic accidents that number is cut in another 2/3.

Do you have a source for that information?

Can you provide a source showing that more pizza delivery guys were killed than cops in any year?

You can't, because they weren't.

There's deliberate obfuscation going on here, the 39 per 100,000 figures is not just for pizza delivery, it's all driver/sales workers.

Why can't people just deal with facts and let those facts do the talking instead of trying to mislead (not specifically you, whoever decided to single out pizza delivery) so that it fits their particular agenda or bias?

This may answer your question: www.abovetopsecret.com...



13 of every 100,000 full-time employees in a bar or drinking establishment die each year.
15 of every 100,000 full-time landscapers do (the same number as police officers).
25 of every 100,000 full-time truck drivers die on the job.

Oh the danger they face and we all should just be on our knees before them as they're all just doing it out of the goodness of their hearts because they all just donate EVERY penny of their salary to charity.

Look to your left, there's the door. There might be a cop out there waiting for you to get on your knees. ;-)
