The police officer in Illinois was the eighth law enforcement officer shot and killed in the U.S. in the last month and the fourth in 10 days. During the last 12 months, six officers appear to have been targeted specifically because they worked in law enforcement. (For more info, click here.) There are people using the police for target practice and there is no way in hell to justify that.
Is this who we are? We are America. You will know us by the trail of our dead.
Is this who we want to be?
