Number of Police Deaths Growing

(CBS News) Most serious crimes are down across the country -- but the number of police officers killed in the line of duty is up. On Thursday night, there were two more tragedies.
Michael Maloney, the police chief in Greenland, N.H., was killed in a drug raid. He was eight days from retirement. And in Modesto, Calif., Deputy Robert Paris was shot and killed while serving an eviction notice.
 
 
 
 
Last Sunday, four New York City police officers were wounded by a gunman. Two days before that, a police officer in Austin, Texas was shot and killed responding to a shoplifting. And in Melbourne, Florida last month, a sheriff's deputy was killed during a traffic stop.
In all of last year, 72 police officers were killed in the line of duty. So far this year, 35 officers have died and it's only April.
CBS News correspondent John Miller, a former assistant director of the FBI, spoke with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley about this trend.
