It sounds better if the union makes it look like more officers are dying. The statements of Cota and his girlfriend Dillon no doubt are meant to try and create a better image for Cota who is under investigation for lying and trying to fix a meet and confer election. Deaths by gunfire are up 26%. Traffic incidents are only up by 3%. In a category called "other causes" the numbers are up from 6 to 11 for an 83% jump.
Last year was a good year in regards to Officer in line of Duty death. 2009 -127, 2008- 145, 2007-196. (figures taken from the Officer Down Memorial Page). I question the MPA figures, since 69 have already died this year across the nation. I would guess the the final total will be closer to 2009 figures than 2008 come December 31st.
