I doubt we'll be seeing any WHITE LIVES MATTER demonstrations as a result of this. Strange how that works...

True, but there's a big difference between knowingly taking a job where there's a risk of injury or death, and going out of your way to make that risk happen.

Technically, anyone can get killed everyday. You can get killed crossing the street. Police know what the risks are when the sign up for the job, it's not rocket science.

It's funny, well, scary, how many stories come out where the cops are the ones doing the killing when they are the ones being called in to help.
Just out of curiosity, have you ever done a ride-along?

And an officer can't protect or serve the public if he gets himself killed.
