    But it's still a risk that's unique to the job.

    The firefight took place on a normal street, not a highway. Did you even watch the video?

    Admittedly on first viewing it looked likea highway to me too, that's a fuck load of lanes. Either way, using bystanders as cover is a faux pas.

    The chase was on a highway but then they exited. The road they were on is four lanes each way, but there are stop lights.

    There isn't a "friendly public face" component to a soldier's job the way there is for LE. You're also ignoring that although officer death on the job its almost always targetted unlike the industrial worker example you normally use.

    It is a road and not a highway. Miramar Parkway just happens to be its name, but it easily could have been Miramar St or Miramar Rd, as other similarly sized roads directly to the north of it are called (Sheridan St, Stirling Rd for example).

    A highway, on the east coast at least, does not have stop lights. So no, main road /= highway.

    You do no such thing. You actually go out of your way to comment on every post I make and post in every thread I create.

    You're repeatedly posted statistics for on the job deaths and pointed out that cops aren't high on the list of people likely to die at work.

    Blue helmets aren't at all tasked with the PR duties that LEO's are.

    Cops should be done for murder.

    They were out of control. They thought they were in Heat and like a film there are no consequences.

    The poor families of the needless victims have a lifetime of pain thanks to the cops wanting go pew pew.

    State highways are roads. They are not the same as controlled-access highways, which are simply called "highways" on the east coast.

    Not the first thing that comes to mind and most definitely not what you meant initially.

    State highways are generally a mixture of primary and secondary roads.

    Why post a bunch of unnecessary stuff? I live here and am familiar with the road system.

    You should be apologizing to me for both of your fuck -ups (comma use and erroneous use of the generic term "highway").
