    Default Texas lawmakers, organizations look to protect officers

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott renewed his commitment to pass the Police Protection Act this coming legislative session.

    Marcelino Benito, KHOU 6:05 PM. CST November 21, 2016

    The cold-blooded execution of Detective Benjamin Marconi in San Antonio is stirring up fear, anger and uncertainty in police officers and deputies everywhere.

    "Makes me sick," said Tom Moore, President of the Harris County Fraternal Order of Police. "They say that could have been me, what can I do to protect myself and our sister officers."

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott renewed his commitment to pass the Police Protection Act this coming legislative session.

    He first proposed the law after the ambush-style attack on Dallas Police officers this summer. The law would make it a hate crime to target police officers simply because they wear a badge.

    "It tells people we're not going to tolerate individuals killing somebody simply because they're wearing a uniform, no more so than we would tolerate people killing because of their sexual orientation, religious beliefs or color of their skin," said Ray Hunt, president of the Houston Police Officers Union.

    ( so, will all crime eventually become a hate crime?)

    Isn't murder a crime in the first place?

    Was a capital offense for years, what's changed?

    Now it's a super duper crime, but only if you kill the more equal animals.

    If this brain surgeon actually wants to protect kops his only option is to immediately fire 2/3rds of 'em, disarm the remainder and decriminalize all nonviolent 'offenses' ...

    If he continues to wage wars on the citizenry he can expect quid-pro-quo...

    He's popular here with the redstaters and Trumpsters. They think murdering a cop should be mandatory death sentence. Bypass due process completely.

    Why would anyone want to shoot a cop ??

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    LMAO. Dollars to donuts this idiot doesn't even understand what he just said ...

    Note that the pronoun "they" is plural.

    Then note that "individuals" is plural, but "somebody" is singular.

    Thus, "they" unambiguously refers to "individuals," not to "somebody."

    Exactly, their PR department has been working overtime to prevent such things.
