    Thanks for sharing these stats. The law enforcement casualties don't seem to be paraded on the news as much as our soldiers' casualties. They all deserve our gratitude and respect.

            Wow, North Carolina has the most LE deaths?

            Thanks to all those who serve in uniform (military and LE) for this country.

                I figured it was (lots and lots of numbers + short attention spans on the internet)^tl;dr - lack of anything equally poignant to say = 5 days + 110 views + 3 replies.

                  I'm with MagnaCentipede on this one. It's a bunch of numbers. I care a LOT about this issue, but there's really nothing to say.

                    This kind of post is hard to respond to without sounding callous or ungrateful.

                    Those numbers are very important. Those that give their life while serving others should be honored.

                    But there are many others that also lose their lives while in the service of a greater cause. Even if they don't recognize it for what it is. Farmers, fishermen, factory workers. Even the cubical dwellers can and should be honored. Many are doing things they may or may not enjoy, but they do it. They do it to care for their family or some other reason that is outside themselves. I think they deserve just as much recognition as those in the military or police force.

                      Wow, I actually received negative rep for this and that just proves my point. There were other threads that were a lot more insigificant (Paris Hilton for one) that got a lot more attention. I think it shows how much society as a whole just doesn't care.

                      You have a point, almost. All of those people you mentioned and more provide a valuable service to society and our country and deserve to be recognized. That is is not what this thread was about. Also, last I checked none of them had a job that put their lives on the line for other people they didn't know. None of them ran to the sound of gunfire. There's a big difference there.
