ThrouLaw Enforcementgh the first seven months of 2016, seventy police officers have died in the line of duty.  Thirty-three officers have been fatally shot, the latest coming on July 28 in San Diego.  Police officer Jonathan M. DeGuzman was shot, after he and his partner – who was wounded – conducted a traffic stop at an intersection.  Both officers were shot in the upper body.   The suspect, also suffered a gunshot wound, but he will survive.

Officer DeGuzman worked 16 years for the San Diego police department.  He is survived by his wife and two children.  DeGuzman was 43 years of age.

You won’t read or hear much about this in the mainstream media.  The initial story goes away after a few days, as the mainstream media has other templates to push.   There is, after all,  a presidential election to worry about, particularly when it comes to a certain candidate they do not want to win.

So as the mainstream media continues to cover all the news that fits their agenda, remember those who have committed their lives to law enforcement.  They go to work everyday, not knowing if they will return home to their families, all the while doing their part to protect the lives of all, including those who have that agenda to fulfill.
