The FBI’s James Comey is concerned that police officers are not going to stop crimes due to the “Ferguson Effect” and the data may point to that:
The number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty decreased from 2014 to 2015, according to preliminary data released by the FBI Monday.
Forty-one officers were killed in the line of duty in 2015, the FBI said, a 20 percent decrease from the 51 officers killed in 2014.
