U.S. law enforcement officials under attack

The execution style killing of a West Virginia sheriff on Wednesday is just the latest in a series of violent attacks against law men across the country.

In the past two months alone, we have seen two prosecutors gunned down in Texas, a prison chief murdered in Colorado, and now a West Virginia sheriff has been killed as he sat in his SUV.

What's driving this unusual spike in murder of law enforcement?

Deb Feyerick is Outfront with the story.
