The country’s top law enforcement officer Monday denounced the increased violence against law enforcement officers detailed in the FBI’s 2016 Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted report.

“Every law enforcement officer goes to work knowing that today might be his or her last, but last year, we saw a staggering 61 percent increase in the number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty because of a felony, and on average, more than 150 officers were assaulted in the line of duty every single day,” said Attorney General Jefferson B. “Jeff” Sessions.

“These numbers are as shocking as they are unacceptable,” he said of the FBI report released Monday.

Also in the report: 118 law enforcement officers were killed in line-of-duty incidents in 2016 – this is a 37 percent increase from 2015, when 86 law enforcement officers were killed in line-of-duty incidents.

Of the officers killed in 2016, 17 were ambushed in premeditated attacks and three were the victims of unprovoked attacks, the report said.

There was a 14 percent increase in the number of officers assaulted, according to the report: 57,180 officers were victims of line-of-duty assaults, up from 50,212 officers in 2015.

Sessions said he is glad President Donald J. Trump is on the side of law enforcement officers.

“Fortunately we have a president who understands this,” he said. “President Trump ran for office as a law-and-order candidate; now he is governing as a law-and-order president.

One of the first executive orders signed by the president directed the Department of Justice to work to prevent violence against law enforcement officers, he said.

A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.

Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.

If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.

The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.

If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”

Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
