As the Democrats continue their war against the police in America, the number of officers killed in the line of duty has skyrocketed.
There are about 630,000 sworn police officers in the U.S.A., and according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, 231 officers were killed in the line of duty (with 64 of them shot and killed).
But, already this year, 34 officers have been shot and killed. That is a massive rise over last year, and already half the number shot last year.
The number of ambush killings of cops has also wildly risen.
Per the Fraternal Order of Police:
🚨NEW REPORT: The Violence Against America's Police Officers Must Stop! The number of officers shot so far this year is up 113% compared to this time in 2020.

According to the Daily Caller:
The states with the most officer shootings last month were California, Minnesota, and Texas—each with three occurrences, according to the FOP report. A police officer was shot in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, on Jan. 25 after responding to a call about felony domestic assault, U.S. News reported. He is expected to recover.
In Selma, California, a police officer was shot and killed Feb. 1 after a woman flagged him down and alerted him to a suspicious car, according to NBC News. When the officer got to the car, he was shot multiple times and later died at the hospital.
“This past year has been one of the most dangerous years for law enforcement in recent history due to the increase of violence directed towards law enforcement officers as well as the nationwide crime crisis,” Yoes said.
“Frankly, it is unlike anything I’ve seen in my 36 years of law enforcement,” he continued.
The number of murdered police officers continues to rise as the Democrats continue to devalue their lives.
