Since Obama first got into office eight years ago, the amount of disrespect and attack on law enforcement has sky rocketed. Thankfully Texas is bringing though a new bill to make attacking a police officer or first responder 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 would greatly increase the penalties on those who commit such offences if passed. This was passed after a brutal murder of a San Antonio cop who was writing a traffic ticket last weekend.
