At least 30 police, law enforcement officers shot last month, up 67% from Jan. 2021: ‘Worst I have ever seen’
If they aren’t afraid to take out cops they certainly aren’t afraid to take you on…….
At least 30 police and law enforcement officers were shot in the month of January – up 67% from the same time last year, new statistics show, as the head of the country’s largest police union calls the violence against cops “the worst I have ever seen.”
Five of the 30 officers shot in the line of duty were killed, and four of the shootings were “ambush-style attacks,” the National Fraternal Order of Police said in a Tuesday press release. The union found that five officers were shot and three were killed by the ambush gunfire.
“The number of ambush-style attacks listed does not include the countless incidents where an officer was shot at but not struck by gunfire during an ambush-style attack,” the FOP report states.
