Texas Governor Wants To Make Disrespecting Police An Official Hate Crime

The Daily Sheeple – by Piper McGowin

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he wants the Texas legislature to pass a bill next year that would make disrespect and attacks on police an official hate crime, joining a number of politicians across the country who are jumping on the “Blue Lives Matter” bandwagon.

Abbott also wants to strengthen penalties for crimes against law enforcement officers even when the incident wouldn’t qualify as a hate crime, KWTX reports. Abbott says Texas, “will no longer tolerate disrespect for those who serve.”  

The question in regard to the potential slippery slope of these laws is what exactly constitutes “disrespect” towards police that would officially cross into “hate crime” territory? Resisting arrest?

Meanwhile, although events like those that took place in Dallas are shocking, they are also very rare. This country’s police brutality against the people is off the charts, and there is no special criminal designation for that. We didn’t even have an official database on the number of American citizens killed by cops until recently.

Louisiana has already passed a “Blue Lives Matter” bill, and Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin are currently considering it.

  1. Cry me a river

    How about making false arrest a hate crime , huh?
    Tit for tat how do you like that?


  3. Sorry to say I live in TX with this nonsense coming from the Gov..

    It’s all about protecting the criminals that “serve.”

    History is replete with this age old pattern, unfortunately.

    Time to Brave Heart it!

  4. I knew sooner or later he would show his true colors, lol. I don’t show respect to those who don’t show respect to others, regardless of what stupid phoney laws get passed.
    At this point most of us realize there is no more rule of law left in the US, abide by the constitution and ignore their phony laws, we are not their slaves, and they are not our masters.

    1. Yep, I just lost respect for the guy. That gives police depts. license to hire more psychopaths. Just what Texas needs!

      1. If I ever had any for him it was lost for certain when about 8 months ago I read in our local paper that he was in great support of the state of Israel. I don’t remember all the details, but it was enough to know where he was coming from.

  5. “Abbott says Texas, “will no longer tolerate disrespect for those who serve.””

    Looks like someone on our side of the fence needs to pour more hot coffee or water on his legs. 😉 That might change his mind a little.

    Really, Wheels? So now disrespecting someone is a crime? Where’s that in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Hmm……Nope. It says right here under the 1st Article, “FREEDOM OF SPEECH”!!! Do you need me to give you a copy, Wheels?

    How about writing it all down in Spanish for them illegal immigrants that are usually the ones “disrespecting someone”, since you love to make campaign ads in Spanish to please your Mexican in-laws. Hell, who knows if they are even legal or not.

  6. “will no longer tolerate disrespect for those who serve.”

    So now pigs are being officially anointed as a superior class of humans that we have to “respect” for their power regardless of their behavior.

    I hope this increases the number of people who decide to shoot at them rather than be abused by them. It’s the best we can hope for until we see the Texas governor hanged.

  7. And these people are of the same ilk protecting trump.
    Can’t wait til after the elections, if there is one, and if there is, plan b.
    Their un natural laws is what got us here.
    I’m so done with all this.
    Americans are just too stupid.

  8. Heeeeyyy, Aaaaabbaahhht! I’ve been a baaaaad boy!

    Govna, Govna, I slap you soundly about the head and shoulders with apound of bacon!

  9. Gov. Abbot is a dam bloody red COMMUNIST just like his COMMUNIST POLICE!!!!!

    What we are really talking about here is “Thought Crime” right out of Orwell’s 1984.
