Police Harassment

   We frequently hear police officers whine how dangerous their jobs are, using guilt as a motivator to extract support for increased pay or protection from consequences of officer misconduct.

  After September 11 2001, it became almost impossible to criticize police officer's misbehavior without prefacing comments with genuflections toward officer's relative "heroism." "They risk their lives for us every day," was the common refrain.

  Police officers' jobs are more dangerous than most -- 13.5 officers per 100,000 die on the job annually compared with 3.4 per 100,000, which is the national average for all occupations.  Many other common jobs are much more dangerous than a police officer including groundskeepers, garbage collectors, farmers, airline pilots, construction workers and truck drivers.

  Police officers are trained to approach potential threats with overwhelming force, and are outfitted with numerous safety technologies such as (body armor, high powered weapons, training, multiple officers provide backup frequently even for routine traffic stops, etc.) that makes their on-the-job deaths much less likely than groundskeepers or garbage collectors. And harsh punishment for cop killers -- both ill treatment while in official hands and the threat of capital punishment - creates dramatic incentives even for the worst bad guys to avoid killing a police officer.
