    Thanks for that, Donc. Even if you exclude the car accidents and other injuries, quite a few cops are shot annually, and if you look at the list, not all of those incidents occurred in big cities (though it looks like Chicago and Phoenix had a bad year this year).

    You obviously don't know how the Supreme Court ruled on this subject. Also, I have yet to find a dangerous area in Omaha. Of course I am also the white guy that gets pulled over and asked what I am doing in this part of town at 4 in the morning.

    So if my post is stupid, yours must be retarded.

    Sorry, but that says nothing that is germane to my statement. Police are not required to put themselves in harms way. They have a choice.

    Ha! "To occasionally put yourself in harm's WAY???" I'm quite sure they didn't sign up to go into a war zone. I don't blame them in the least. They were undoubtedly out-gunned and out-manned. Ya' know, they may not be formally saying that Mexico is in a civil war, but I sure think that's what it is. Where's their army?

    Look for them to ask for help from the U.S. some time soon . . . OMG.

    Come on, this is an unprecedented assault on police headquarters. The closest thing we might equate to this happenstance was in Los Angeles, I think, when police responded to a robbery in progress and the criminals were armed with assault rifles and body armor. And even then the police were out in the open and able to retreat if they needed to, not being held virtually hostage.

    Assault on Precinct 13 was just a movie.

    What do police officers having a dangerous job have to do with your post?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You need to not speak on matters of which you have no experience.

    I used to be a cop, and I walked into dangerous situations almost every day. My county isn't even a big-city county, and yet my life was in danger on several occasions. I was expected to willingly put myself in danger for the sake of my duty and those under my protection, and I did so, and my buddies on third shift did so, and I resent the implication that we didn't.

    The Supreme Court ruled that LE is not liable for the safety of the individual citizen. The reason for that ruling was so that EVERY person in the country who gets robbed or hurt couldn't sue LE for damages for not being there when the person needed them. This was necessary: in this sue-happy society, can you imagine the gazillions in damages?

    That doesn't mean we are not expected and required to take risks in the line of duty. We do, and sometimes we are injured or killed trying to protect people and get the scumbags.

    lol, these just go to show how safe being a police officer is. Most were killed by vehicles or somethiing related to that. And being hit by a train? LMAO. 132 is not bad seeing as to how roughly 40-60 were done by cars/trains/accidents. There is simply nothing in the states that compares to what is going on in Mexico. USA cops are spoiled they never have to risk their lives while on the job. Those stats prove it.

    In my experience, LE rarely goes after the dangerous types. Instead they have to set up special task forces. Because most LEO's are cowards who would rather go after dangerous speeders because they bring in more revenue then a robber/murderer who will not be able to afford being bailed out. So yeah LEO's are typically not going after scumbags unless you believe someone going 60mph in a 40mph road is a dangerous criminal. Then I would ask you to get your head examined.
