Williams: Police Killed From 1800 To 2015

on July 13, 2016 - 8:26am

Here’s a chart of the number of police killed in the US from 1800 to 2015. The main features are lawlessness (what level would the killing have reach in post 1930, if the FBI had not taken a very strong negative view of the bad guys?) and civil disorder over black integration, which culminated after a decade and a half.

We've had a downward trend since the mid-1970's. The low now appears to be about 110-125 per year (about like post WWII). Makes me wonder what will bring on the next wave.
