Iron working is approximately 30 times more deadly than being a police officer. You already embarrassed yourself with the iron worker quip. John Permalink my point is Robert that every job has it innate safety hazards and that no number or statistic will ever prove to me that policing is not dangerous.
Do i think iron working is dangerous? Also… does your stats show the amount of Training, Education, Skill is needed to do said job? Yes, LE is dangerous.

These high standards also take a toll on us as cops as well. I am the only one on in my small town every time i work. We have 6 officers including myself in my jurisdictional area and other than the Chief, I am the only one who is a full time officer.
If i am sick, exhausted, hurt… I still have to work. I cannot call out sick. In a place that does Iron working for instance. If that was the case.
