This continuing drumbeat of officers being shot all across the country appears clearly indicative of a growing trend of willingness to use deadly force against law enforcement officers. That element has always been out there as we all know very well but recently the increasing frequency of such incidents is reason to be very alert no matter where you are or whatever "routine" activity you are engaged in. It isn't paranoia when you are right so always wear those vests since they are a lot more comfortable than a bullet in the chest, and …. pay attention.
