Under Obama, the law enforcement community has been brutalized. Obama set the stage for how he felt about the police with the Gates’ incident, and it went downhill from there.
Though Gates lit the fuse, Ferguson provided the TNT.
The New York Times reports that 135 police officers died in the line of duty this year. Of those at least 64 law enforcement officers have been shot and killed this year, the most in five years, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Worse yet, 21 of the officer were killed in ambush-style attacks.
