The FBI has reported that 96 police officers were killed in 2014 (most recent analysis). Of these terrible deaths, 46 were by gun fire. I cannot escape the thought that approaching a vehicle stopped for an infraction must be the most frightening thing any police officer can do, but then I thought what about responding to a domestic dispute, or a report of an imbalanced person, or even a simple bar argument, or a political protest. Yes, the police officer’s job is 24/7 dangerous, and no one can ever say anything different.
