Virginia Democrats Want to Reduce Charges for Assaulting a Police Officer
There are currently 28 proposals from the Virginia Senate Democrat Caucus to reform law enforcement systems. One of which is something so egregious that it should put to bed, once and for all, the myth that the Left cares about law and order or about the police.
According to the Daily Wire, Virginia Senate Democrats want to reduce the charge of assault on a police officer to a simple misdemeanor offense. This would abolish the current law that states that assaulting a police officer is a Class 6 felony with a mandatory minimum of 6 months in prison.
When proposing this awful idea, the Virginia State Democrats issued a statement saying “The deaths of [George] Floyd, [Ahmaud] Arbery and [Breonna] Taylor have awoken Americans and Virginians to long-standing problems in policing in America. After people are arrested, additional damage is done by a criminal justice system that has been streamlined to produce convictions and punishment instead of rehabilitation and justice,” the Daily Wire continued.
Good luck recruiting new cops to your state, Governor Blackface.
