2008 LEOKA

From the recent Tactical Wire around the cooler article

41 Law Enforcement Officers were killed. A Decline from the 58 LEOs killed the year before. And the lowest in 10 yrs.

“Of the 42 alleged offenders, 36 had criminal arrests.”

In other words, if we didn’t have a policy of catch’n’release that number would be a mere 6 LEOs killed (still too many).

That 85% is interesting. As I have often heard it said that 70%-85% of crime is committed by repeat offenders, those on parol, early release, etc.  It would appear that the killing of police officers shows a similar percentage having been done by repeat offenders.
