In the years since the Oklahoma City federal building was bombed in 1995, 37 law enforcement officers have been murdered by domestic right-wing political extremists. These officers — one constable, one correctional officer, one security guard, five state troopers, eight sheriff’s deputies, and 21 police officers — are among thousands of men and women killed in the line of duty since the nation’s founding. Each of their deaths was a unique tragedy.
