Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pushing for the introduction of stronger penalties for crimes against police officers and extend hate crime protections to cops through his Police Protection Act, he revealed Monday.The proposed law would make it a hate crime if someone acts criminally against a cop out of bias against police. It would also increase penalties for all crimes against law enforcement regardless of whether it falls under the label of hate crime. An assault on an officer, which is currently a third degree felony, in line with assaults on other public servants, would be bunked up to a second degree felony under the proposed legislation. Republican Governor Abbott’s bill comes in the wake of the fatal shootings of five police officers in Dallas, Texas earlier this month and a surge, generally, in violence against police. Any crime against law enforcement should be considered a hate crime, and it's about time someone in America gave police officers the protection they deserve. Hopefully if this police protections act passes in the state of Texas it will come with a harsh capital punishment, if crimes against a police officer are in a violent matter or even murder. Police officers around America aren't just protectors of the law, but they are also our last line of defense of America turning into absolute chaos. Just like Greg Abbott most Americans are getting absolutely fed up with political bias against police officers, which have led to the deaths of about 10 police officers in America in the last couple of weeks. Something has to be done to protect officers around America before more cops are killed because of haterd directed at cops and the political bias that comes with which likely gets people motivated to take out police officers. Just hoping more states follow Texas if this police officer protections act gets passed in Texas.
