Well, the Democrats are finally admitting they are essentially the sponsors of the rise in cop-killing.
Heather MacDonald dishes:
An officer is murdered nearly once every five days, yet violence against law enforcement "doesnâ€™t get enough attention,â€ Wray said Sunday on CBSâ€™s "60 Minutes.â€
That is an understatement. Wrayâ€™s bosses â€” Attorney General Merrick Garland and President Joe Biden â€” have instead focused almost exclusively on alleged white-supremacist criminality, which they claim is the biggest domestic threat facing the country today.
That charge is preposterous. It is violent street crime â€” drive-by shootings, sadistic robberies, carjackings â€” that has been destroying lives at an increasing rate since the George Floyd race riots. White-supremacist violence played no role in the record-breaking 29% national homicide increase in 2020 or in the ongoing crime surge since then.
As startling as that 2020 homicide increase was, cop murders rose at twice that rate in 2021. A significant portion of those fatalities were ambushes, which were up 91% by mid-2021. Through April 26 of this year, gun murders of cops are up another 13% over the same period in 2021. Shootings of officers, lethal and nonlethal, were up 43% by early April.
These cop killings emerge from a national rhetoric of cop hatred and racial animosity. The Floyd riots and their long aftermath featured the graffiti tag ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards) sprayed across public buildings from New York City to Seattle.
