8:13- WHY LAW ENFORCEMENT FEELS THAT THEY ARE UNDER SIEGE

Officer involved shootings dominate the headlines when they occur. In 2018, there was a total of 996 officer involved shootings in the United States. Of the 996 officer involved shootings, 402 involved white suspects while 210 involved African-Americans. Yet law enforcement believes that the coverage of officer involved shootings that involved African-Americans was magnified creating a narrative that law enforcement is biased against minorities. Law enforcement also believes that they are becoming political piñatas by politicians who wish to score political points by alleging law enforcement bias. At the same time, they believe the increase in law enforcement deaths that increased 12% in 2018 with a 13% increase in deaths due to fire arms is being ignored. Additionally, law enforcement believes it is becoming harder to perform their duties with the current anti-law enforcement sentiment. This is leading to an acute shortage of law enforcement officers.

So is there a bias against law enforcement? If so what is driving it? What will the effects of it be?
