    I will just say this. Until you are on the receiving end you won't get it.

    The though I will leave the naysayers with is this..

    Next time you need someone to say sorry but instead they say 'I'm sorry but' you may learn the difference.
    So, earlier you were making assertions of fact regarding what Obama said, but now it's all subjective and a 'matter of perspective'. Fine. Whatever.

    Receiving end of what?

    Say sorry for what?

        you also posted a graphic where you claimed police deaths are on the rise where they are clearly on the decline. Care to rebut that?

            Rose consistently from 2008 to 2016.

            But yeah doesn't compare to the 19 thirties

                It rose from 2008-2011. But statistically the trend is downwards over the past 35 years. In fact, over that time the number has dropped in half in that time.

                  Based on your own sources, how do you support this assertion?
                  The numbers don't appear to support it. The long-term trend, especially since 2001, is clearly downward.

                  FWIW, I don't think that heart attacks should be included in any meaningful analysis of police officer deaths. Any occupation which has an element of physical activity would entail risk of physical injury (e.g. firefighters, truck drivers, construction workers), therefore heart attacks are not unique to police work and the inherent dangers of it.

                    That is inaccurate.
                    Police killed by firearms are as follows
                    2016 63,
                    2015 39,
                    2014 48,
                    2013 31,
                    2012 48,
                    2011 68,
                    2010 59,
                    2009 47
                    2008 41

                    the 2008 number was the lowest number ever recorded.
