When Barack Obama took office, he turned his back on police officers. This cause many attacks on American cops. The number of these attacks have increased at a very alarming rate. Texas lawmakers, are fighting this with a new bill which would make attacking a police officer a hate crime.
We’re going to ask that it become an emergency legislative item for the governor so that as soon as we get to Austin in January, we pass it right away, make it law right away,” said Republican State Rep. Jason Villalba, according to Fox News.
This proposal was introduced after the murder of a San Antonio police officer who was murder for witting a traffic ticket. Hopefully this bill will pass so the penalties for attacking a police officer will toughen.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott called for lawmakers to draw up a bill like this one last July, after a sniper gunned down five cops in Dallas. The Officer Down Memorial Page states that 58 police officers have been shot dead this year alone, and seven the victims have been in Texas.
What do you think? Do you support this bill and our nation’s police officers?
