Murder of Police Officers Skyrocket Under Biden

FBI Director Christpher Wray addressed the skyrocketing rate of murders against police officers Sunday, saying the surge is far outpacing general violent crime.

Wray made the comments during a “60 Minutes” interview on Sunday, saying murders of police officers rose 59% in 2021. The total murder rate rose 29% last year, and the U.S. lost 73 police officers to such attacks in 2021.

“Violence against law enforcement in this country is one of the biggest phenomena that I think doesn’t get enough attention,” Wray said, adding that officers are being murdered at a rate of nearly “one every five days.”

“Some of it is tied to the violent crime problem as a whole. But one of the phenomena that we saw in the last year is that an alarming percentage of the 73 law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty last year were killed through things like being ambushed or shot while out on patrol. … Wearing the badge shouldn’t make you a target,” he continued.

The National Fraternal Order of Police announced earlier in April that shootings of police officers had spiked 43% so far in 2022. The police union said 101 police officers had been shot in 2022 alone as of April 1. 

“We are in the midst of a real crisis. The violence directed at law enforcement officers is unlike anything I’ve seen in my 36 years of law enforcement,” National FOP President Patrick Yoes said in a statement at the time. “Last year was one of the most dangerous years for law enforcement, with more officers shot in the line of duty since the National Fraternal Order of Police began recording this data.”

Wray also addressed a more general surge in violent crime, which has impacted most cities across the country. 

“We’re seeing more and more juveniles committing violent crime, and that’s certainly an issue. We’re seeing a certain amount of gun trafficking, interstate gun trafficking. That’s part of it. And we’re seeing an alarming frequency of some of the worst of the worst getting back out on the streets,” Wray said.

  1. With the anti-law enforcement, anti-American socialists aka communists in control in the White House and Congress, what else can we expect. —- Dan French

  2. Why should anyone be surprised. The democrats have done nothing but demonize law enforcement for months. Of course they’re targets now.

  3. Mandatory death row if you kill an officer…PERIOD!!!!
    If you cross that line you automatically go to death row, no lengthy drawn out years of court, just a swift execution . Maybe these degenerate scum bags will think twice before pulling the trigger…Hmmm, wonder what trigger rhymes with ?!?!

  4. Herd them all into a pit, add Soros, Nancy, Adam, Kamala, Hillary, Obama, Michele, Joe, Jill, Hunter, Jen, Maxine and all the rest of the anti American people, them just start firing on them until we are rid of them. Then we can have our Republic back without a lot of worthless hate pushing communist’s!

    Tired of all the BS

  5. Biden n Demoncrats Stole the Election, If They Care How They Got in Office, They Dam Sure Don’t Care What They Do in Office, Civil War is Coming, Lock n Load!!

  6. I for one beleive using the guitene as the old days when kings ruled as the queen of hearsin alice in wonderlandsaid OFF WITH THEIR HEADS I am for that quick fast and a little messy.

  7. When there is no penalty for breaking the law and if there is they let them go what do you expect? …. There is no if-then…..If you do this then that is going happen to you. For years and years the commie teachers unions have instilled in the kids that nothing is their fault and no matter what everybody gets a trophy. Now felons are being let go without bail and the whole thing form day one has come home to roost.

    Get rid of the wokies, and PC and we will be making a good start at putting old fashioned personal responsibility back in vogue.,,,,,A then we need a MAJOR house cleaning of the entire education system to prevent the worst infection ever in this country. The pandemic of Communism. .

  8. Police is our defense against a mob and robbers and murderers and rapist and… and….. Those that kill an officer for just the sake of killing him or her deserve nothing short of life without parole or a death sentence.
    I have teach my children and my grand-children to respect a police person (like I was taught as a child) and in case of an emergency to find and run to one; Yes, I know that there are some police officers that abused their power and their uniform but they are always a minority, the great majority of them are ok in my book

  9. Because USELESS JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION ushered in the “DEFUND THE POLICE” and so-called “CRIMINAL REFORM, aka release them after arrest and empty the jails and prisons” ERA!…..WHICH PUT TARGETS ON THE BACKS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT ACROSS THE USA!!!!!!
