More Cops Dying, But Why?

CNN has a story covering remarks by Eric Holder at this week's International Association of Chiefs of Police conference. In the story there was this:
"Law enforcement fatalities are nearly 20 percent higher than this time last year. And gunfire deaths have increased by nearly 30 percent," Holder said. 
"Today, line-of-duty officer deaths are approaching the highest rates we've seen in almost two decades," Holder told the police chiefs. "This is a devastating and unacceptable trend, and each of these deaths is a tragic reminder of the threats that law enforcement officers face each day."
There is also more information contained in a story posted yesterday at the FBI's website. The story highlights some of the data contained in the Law Enforcement Officers Killed or Assaulted (LEOKA) report for 2010 which was released yesterday.

"Hey, let's be careful out there."
