Being a police officer today is a much more dangerous work field than it was a couple decades ago. We can thank the Democrats for that for causing racial tensions and hatred for those with opposing views.
These circumstances have put police on high alert in which they make more mistakes which causes citizens to get more defensive and hateful toward police which causes more problems. Then you end up with this vicious cycle.
In the case of an officer who issued a ticket to a truck driver, he ended up getting stabbed with a screwdriver after the man lunged at the officer only to wind up dead moments later after the officer shot him.
The officer ended up in the ICU at a local hospital but is expected to fully recover.
Why did the man have to act like an idiot and end his life over a ticket? Pure foolishness.
According to Breitbart News,
Body cam video from a Sugercreek, Ohio, officer shows a truck driver allegedly stab the officer with a screwdriver before being shot dead.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, and the video was released the next day.
Cleveland 19 reports that the officer, Captain Brian Dalton, was allegedly attacked with a screwdriver around 10:00 am.
Dalton came into contact with the suspect, 32-year-old Elijah Collins III, while responding to reports of a truck being driven through lawns.
Dalton handed Collins a citation and told him he would have to appear in municipal court. Collins allegedly responded by grabbing a screwdriver and stabbing Dalton in the neck.
Dalton remains in ICU but his condition is improving.
It's a shame that police officers are some of the most underpaid people in the workforce, especially for the extreme risk they take on every single day.
