Blue Lives matter Bill

Louisiana Democratic Governer, John Bell Edwards, signed a Blue lives Matter bill into law. Specifically, targeting a first responder is now a hate crime.

Of course there are other groups that oppose this bill.

Seriously? First responders need to be protected. Someone who hurts someone whose sole job is to save others should have the book thrown at them. What if people were no longer willing to serve in those roles? Phone Post 3.0

What this law does is makes it a hate crime, not just "assault on an officer" which carries a harsher penalties.

I guess it's now.

Hit a cop while getting arrested, assault on a cop.

Hit a cop because "Fuck da police". Hate crime.

While the intent is good, I doubt it changes anything. Phone Post 3.0

It's just another charge that can be brought upon you. Much like a cop busting a high school kid with an 1/8 of weed and getting him on distribution charges like he is some sort of drug kingpin. Phone Post 3.0
