What War On Cops (Again)?

Radley Balko continues to point out the obvious: being a police officer has rarely been safer.
All of this fact-free fearmongering is having an effect. A Rasmussen poll taken last week found that 58 percent of respondents now believe there is now a “war on police.” Just 27 percent disagreed.
So let’s go through the numbers. Again. So far, 2015 is on pace to see 35 felonious killings of police officers. If that pace holds, this year would end with the second lowest number of murdered cops in decades.

At this point the questions isn't, "why is there a war on cops," it's, "Why does Fox News want you to think there is?"
