Texas Makes Attacking Cops a Hate Crime

on

Hate crimes don’t only occur on blacks and gays and it’s time the country comes to that very obvious realization.

Police officers have been targeted and murdered because of their “unfair” treatment of the black community. No need to mention the fact that these offenders were committing heinous crimes which requires force on a cops part. All that mattered was the color of skin involved and Texas has had enough with this biased thought process. Now if a police officer in Texas is attacked by ANYONE they will be charged with a hate crime, putting things on a even playing field so they say.

Via Breitbart:

The one-year anniversary of the execution deaths of five Dallas police officers is just weeks away but the state of Texas has already responded by making it a hate crime to kill officers. The new law also applies to crimes against judges. The signing of the law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott comes just weeks after the passage of the Thin Blue Line Act by the U.S. House.

The Texas “Police Protection Act” (HB 2908) increases criminal penalties and punishment for an offense “committed against a person because of bias or prejudice on the basis of status as a peace officer or judge.”

A person who causes serious bodily injury to a peace officer or a judge while that person was in the discharge of their official duties would be guilty of a felony of the first degree if convicted. A felony of the first degree is punishable by 99 years to life in state prison but the sentence may not be less than five years. The person convicted can also be fined up to $10,000.

Finally, law enforcement assault will be recognized for what it is, hatred for the law by members of society who refuse to follow it.
