A mish-mash of things from the wonderful Caped Crusader, from Earl, and from my own Facebook feed. The first one explains a lot about the bond between Leftists and Islamists, despite the fact that the former ought to hate the latter because of little things like religion, sexual constraints, etc., while the latter definitely hate the former because of little things like lack of religion, sexual freedom, etc.
As for this last one, I don’t know if the data is correct about the frequency with which police die on the job [see update, below], but I do appreciate the underlying sentiment:
UPDATE: Lee Also writes in the comment thread as follows:
The bottom statistic comes from the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund:
”A total of 1,501 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty during the past 10 years, an average of one death every 58 hours or 150 per year. There were 100 law enforcement officers killed in 2013.”
Last year, according to nleomf.org, 124 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty.
I’d trust the NLEOMF numbers.
