Terrible news for a group of people trying to enforce the laws of the land. What's are the reason? If I remember correctly FBI stats painted a different picture stating violent crimes were down.

So is it training, economy or people who just don't care about the laws because their from another country?

It's sad to hear about crimes committed against Law Enforcement Agents. Most of the time these crimes are committed by citizens of the United States. They are persons with a criminal history or with a mental problem. Sometimes the Law Enforcement Agents don't see it (harm) coming.
