Is Anyone Safe Anymore?

It seems lately that there has been a rise in violence especially against those who have dedicated their lives to helping others. Recently there was a shooting at Poughkeepsie train station where two cops were fired on. One was injured and the other was pronounced dead at the hospital.  This may seem like a fluke act of violence but there were also two cases of violence near my hometown in Long Island. In one instance a man was running around with weapons and an undercover cop saw the man and attempted to stop him. While doing so the cops arrived and shot both the man and the undercover cop, both killed instantly. Also there was a car accident that the local fire department and police responded to. The firefighters and paramedics arrived before the police and when they approached the damaged vehicle the man inside began to fire at them. One of the firefighters was shot and badly injured. All of these incidents have occurred in such a short period of time that it makes one wonder if the firefighters and police who dedicate their lives to helping others are in such danger are we really safe?
