Be careful out there everyone. Assume nobody will be watching for you, so you MUST be watching for them.

Killed by a vehicle leaving the fairgrounds? Some people are insane behind the wheel.

I have been here for a short time, but it seem that as of the past 2-3 weeks, there have been more EOW threads than usual. Is this right?

Either way, I do not care for threads in any quantity.

Had the honor of saluting his motorcade today, sad that it was neccesary.

According to ODMP.

2012 97 (YTD) Line of duty deaths
2011 173
2010 173
2009 139
2008 152
2007 201
2006 161

So on average, in this country, that works out to about one every other day or one every third day.
