    Domestics are the most dangerous police calls.

      Tell that to the cop who gets killed on a routine traffic stop, or serving a warrant.

      Here is a breakdown for 2009, of the 49 officers killed:
      … Fifteen were ambushed
      … Eight were involved in arrest situations
      … Eight were performing traffic pursuits or stops
      … Six were answering disturbance calls
      … Five were involved in tactical situations (like high-risk entries)
      … Four were investigating suspicious persons or activities
      … Two were handling, transporting, or maintaining custody of prisoners

      Once again your generalizations continue to waste space.

    They (domestics) are SOME of the most dangerous calls to answer from what cops say. Don’t try & undermind me slushiequeen. They are still danergous.

    • alpinequeen

      Not semantics, it calling waffling and not saying what you mean.
