Nope. Check your facts. It is more common for construction workers to die on the job than cops. This whole “It’s super dangerous to be a cop” narrative is what people use to justify their shooting of innocent, unarmed people and it couldn’t be farther from the truth.

This narrative is dangerous and using this falsehood to justify the murder of unarmed civilians is shameful.
