Joe Gamaldi, national vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police, warned his profession is dying as officer retirements and resignations are increasing across the country. On “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday, Gamaldi said officers are tired of being “demonized” by the media and politicians who have worked to “burn down” the institution.

The article goes on to state the following:

JOE GAMALDI: For the better part of a decade, we’ve had the media and politicians systematically burning down the institution of policing in this country. And now we’re just living in the ashes. Retirements are up nationwide 45%. Resignations are up 20%. … This is leading to dangerous understaffing on the streets at a time when violence against us is through the roof to the tune of 157 police officers shot already this year. Response times are through the roof. We don’t even have people to investigate the crimes. … I’ve been a police officer for 17 years. It is not hyperbole when I say our profession is dying. We have been denigrated. We’ve been demonized. And we’ve been treated like crap for years. And we’re all sick of it.


Fox host Bill Hemmer cited the statistics:

  • 2021 – 158 officers shot and injured
  • 2022 – 173 officers shot and injured

Gamaldi describes the “defund the police” movement as just the “chef’s kiss” on all the horrible rhetoric that has been fired at police officers over the last few years.

He noted that this is the only profession in the United States, aside from the military, “that we go to work every day and people are actively trying to kill us.”

“Right now what is going on in law enforcement is not sustainable,” Gamaldi warned, adding, “We cannot continue to take the losses we’re taking in retirements and resignations.”

  1. We need to defund the FBI, DHS, DEA, ATF, IRS and any other government entity with law enforcement policies except the US Marshalls and the secret service. So far they are all corrupt!!

  2. They just passed the Red Flag law on guns. So take away our guns, and lose our Police Force. Our Federal Government are trying to take over America and our freedoms.. We will be no better than China, and Venezuela.

    • Maybe we close the fucking border, back the blue because they are the only one between Americans and the illegals, drug addicts, the felons and all mentally ills in this country !!! You should call a politician or a drug addict next time you need help

  3. Who can blame them for retiring or resigning when the try to do their job and are demonized for it. The longer it happens the more honest citizens will pay the price for it. The criminals will run the country.

  4. That will hurt all the decent people who need our policemen and that’s exactly what the radicals want! The lawless running the streets and the decent, God fearing people to be helpless and hopeless! I say more policemen should get stronger and do their jobs the best they can because things will change if We win the senate and the house! Don’t let things break you! We as citizens are fighting too! We appreciate your hard work and know what your going through and I’m sick about how your being treated! We need you and love you! Don’t give up!

  6. This is what the left and Democrats wanted. Reduce law enforcement and trying to remove the 2nd so we cannot defend ourselves.

  7. That’s because too many cops are authoritarian THUGS with Qualified Immunity, who like to violate citizens’ rights, and don’t know the Laws they are supposed to be enforcing.

  8. To blame all cops for some that shouldnt be cops . Is like blaming all whites for slavery. It doesnt add up.if you do like cops then go somewhere that doesnt have cops. Or just be a good citizen and dont pull a gun on them , run from them or shoot off your mouth at them simple.

  9. Cops for the most part unlike liberals are not stupid. Most have college degrees great work ethics and can find work anywhere . The public in the end will get the police force it supports , good or bad. Looks to be bad right now.
