Attacking a police officer might soon become a hate crime in Louisiana as the state is going to enact the so-called “Blue Lives Matter” bill. The governor is expected to sign it into law, the first ever of its kind in the US.Passed by both the House and the Senate, HB 953 expands the state’s hate-crime law to include law enforcement officers, firefighters and medical first responders. In many states, including in Louisiana, there are laws covering bias-motivated crimes against people based on their skin color, nationality, gender, disability or religion. Relatively recently, sexual orientation and gender identity have also been added to some lists of protected categories. "If you're going to have an extensive hate crime statute then we need to protect those that are out there protecting us on a daily basis," Rep. Lance Harris, who introduced the bill, told CNN. Under the bill, anyone convicted of a hate-motivated felony against an officer may face up to a $5,000 fine and up to five years of prison, while a misdemeanor hate crime against an officer comes with a maximum $500 fine and six-month prison sentence. The bill takes its unofficial name from Black Lives Matter, a movement widely protesting police brutality across the US. However, it mirrors the problem, since the bill was inspired by the death of Darren Goforth, a Texas sheriff's deputy who was shot "execution-style" in an ambush in August 2015. Finally some police back up in America! Black Lives Matter and Obama only have to be pissed off, which to all Americans should be a good thing. Our men and women in blue have been facing a war on police since the Obama administration has stepped into office, and things for police officers have only got worse with the time Obama has been in power. You see it everywhere in America where if a police officer does their job or defends their lives with deadly force, they tend to only get labeled as the bad guy and not the criminal. With all the bashing on police officers from the Obama team and the mainstream media, police officers in America feel like every little thing they do anymore will be blown out of proportion these days. Maybe just maybe with this new law police officers can go back to their jobs knowing that they can perform them, because now they have a law that protects them from the wolves on the streets of America. These same wolves if killed by police, will cause our brave in blue to be labeled as the bad guy because of the politically correct of criminal worship that has overtaken America. With this Blue Lives Matter Bill maybe police officers can get back to being able to do their jobs, instead of having to worry about everything they do from tying their shoes to having not to worry about a news media who will blast cops on a daily basis. It's time to respect our police in America and stop the bullshit criminal worship.
