This story quotes a guy from the Police Union who says that cops feel as if there is a targeted War on Cops underway. Yet, every incident in the story that results in Cops getting hurt is a result of the police initiating contact. Except one – the guy who walked into the Cop Shop in Detroit and unloaded.
There may be a growing intolerance to being screwed with in the general public – guys who are tired of Po Po sticking their noses where they don’t belong. So, instead of answering the nice Officer’s questions and taking the ticket/beating/arrest, some folks are snapping off rounds instead.
But, a War on Cops? The evidence does not support this claim, which will obviously be used in future negotiations for more benefits for union members.
If it were a genuine War on Cops, it would be the Citizens initiating contact.
