The highest ranking law-man in the US, Eric Holder:
The number of officers killed in the line of duty jumped 13 percent in 2011 compared with the year before — and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder condemned the increase as “a devastating and unacceptable trend” that he blamed on illegal firearms.
The number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty rose to 173 this year, from 153 in 2010, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund announced Wednesday. This year’s figure is 23 percent higher than 122 killed in the line of duty in 2009.
Holder said “too many guns have fallen into the hands of those who are not legally permitted to possess them,” in explaining the increase.
What? Whatwhatwhatwhat?! So perhaps we should track down the suppliers of those guns. Lets start with everyone connected to the Fast and Furious gun walking program.
I guess when you've gotten away with ignoring voter intimidation, and calling the US a nation of cowards, you feel like you'll get away with anything.
But what about guns falling into the hands of "those who are not legally permitted to possess them"? Have you no shame? Shouldn't you have added, "sadly, some of which were supplied by my employees"? What huevos.
Don't fire him Mr Obama. This is a man you need to be closely identified with.
