Virginia Democrats Propose Reducing Charge For Assaulting Police Officers

Article:

 

Virginia Senate Democrats are proposing the reduction of the charge of assault on a police officer from a felony to a simple misdemeanor offense.

The proposal, one of 28 championed by the Virginia Senate Democratic Caucus to reform the state’s law enforcement systems, would get rid of the current law that considers an assault of a police officer a Class 6 felony and imposes a mandatory minimum term of confinement of six months.

The Virginia code states:

If any person commits an assault or an assault and battery against another knowing or having reason to know that such other person is a judge, a magistrate, a law-enforcement officer … a correctional officer  … a volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel member who is employed by or is a volunteer of an emergency medical services agency or as a member of a bona fide volunteer fire department or volunteer emergency medical services agency … such person is guilty of a Class 6 felony, and, upon conviction, the sentence of such person shall include a mandatory minimum term of confinement of six months.

The Virginia Senate Democrats issued a statement reading, “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.”

I thought that all assaults, no matter who the victim, is a felony, though i may be mistaken.  However, if all assault is a felony, with the exception of cops, how is that equal treatment under the law?

The stupid is strong with these people. I was hoping societal collapse would be due to zombie apocalypse but i guess i'll have to settle for socialism for our ruin, thanks to the so called Democrats. The people tearing up stuff in our streets don't realize they'll be the second group silenced, conservative voices will be first. Frustrating.

I don't want to see anybody else hurt, but, its coming; there is civil unrest in the smaller towns now, i work out of Paris Texas, we've been told to be out of a particular part of town no later than 4 pm.

Not that this is news, but the Marxist Party has certain;u picked a side in all this; they're firmly with the thugs and criminals.

An effective opponent (of which the GOP is not) would plaster this all over prior to the election

That view is soooo 20th Century. Very unwoke.  We're now in Animal Farm territory: Some animals are more equal than others

So if a cop hits a citizen, its a felony for which they also want to make him personally liable via civil litigation, but if a citizen hits a cop, its merely a misdemeanor?

When did I get transported to an alternate reality, and how do I get back to the Universe from which I originated?

I’ve been asking myself that since March.

Leftists/Democrats are filth. Trash. They're DAMNED LUCKY I'm not in charge. Every Democrat politician would be lined up and shot, and every registered Democrat voter would be severely slapped upside the head, then deported to the communist/socialist country of their choice: Venezuela...Cuba...North Korea...etc...take your pick, traitor.

<_<

How about reducing the charges for assaulting politicians?

If it's going to be open season, let's really open it up.
