The number of “ambush-style” attacks on law enforcement officers has leapt this year, a national police union says.
Data show 83 officers were shot in 67 separate ambush-style attacks between Jan. 1 and Aug. 31, according to the National Fraternal Order of Police.
That’s up 148 percent from the same time period last year.
“It’s just a massive increase,” Joe Gamaldi, vice president of the union and a Houston police sergeant, told The Epoch Times.
