In 2021, many of America’s major cities shattered previous records for violent crime and homicide rates. Chicago, New York, Milwaukee, and other large cities saw a spike in violent crime that threatened to bring back the crime wave of the 80s and 90s.
With anti-police sentiment on the rise, police have frequently expressed concerns that criminals would be emboldened and start to attack cops. President Biden, who was carried to office on the backs of the radical-left wing Black Lives Matter movement, oversaw another record being shattered in 2021 when more police officers were killed in the line of duty than in any other previous year.
Violent attacks on police officers see no sign of abating this year as multiple police officers were attacked last week while attempting to provide life-saving aid to victims of gang violence.
American Military News Reported–
“Officers with the Chicago Police Department were attacked by gang members last week while trying to provide life-saving aid to people who had been shot.
According to officials, two rival gangs began firing at each other just before 5 p.m. on May 10 in the 4800-block of South Ada Street. One person was killed and four others were wounded in the gunfight.
“Officers immediately attempted to perform life-saving measures on those that were shot, and they were met by a hostile crowd,” police Commander Don Jerome of the Ninth District told reporters, according to CNN. “Members from the community and gang members from this crowd were actively fighting the police while they were trying to attend to the victims.”
Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said the violence erupted after one gang was spotted driving by a rival gang in a stolen Mazda. Brown said gang members “began assaulting police officers” when they arrived on scene.”
