(DailyDig.com) – Despite ongoing “defund the police” movements across the country spurring on hard feelings towards law enforcement, a majority of people still stand behind their community officers. Yet, attacks on police are even more frequent. The latest such event took place on Sunday, July 25, in Louisville, Colorado.
A police SUV caught on fire, costing the Louisville PD a massive $70,000. Investigators are now saying that the vehicle was intentionally set on fire. Thankfully, there was no one present in the area where the SUV was located.
Law enforcement agents haven’t yet identified a suspect.
