Good news: There is NO “war on cops”

leave a comment »

Very good news: there is absolutely no evidence of a “war on cops,” and indeed police work continues to be safer. Radley Balko has details in this Washington Post story. From that (lengthy and thorough) article, a few charts. (It does seem that some, apparently in ignorance of the facts, are floating the idea that there is a “war on cops.” But the facts belie the claim.) By all means, read the entire article.
