The governor of Louisiana has responded to the violence incited by the Black Lives Matter group. Governor John Bel Edwards is expected to sign into law a bill that considers it a hate crime for any person who specifically targets a police officer or first responder.
Ever since the Black Lives Matter group has preached their hateful rhetoric towards police officers, crimes against cops has increased. According to Fox, the “Blue Lives Matter” bill came about after Harris County, Texas Sherriff Darren Goforth was cowardly targeted and murdered at a gas station because of no other reason than he was wearing a uniform.
“The members of the law enforcement community deserve these protections,” Governor Edwards said, “and I look forward to signing this bill into law.”
Not everyone is happy about the new hate crime law. The local chapter of the Black Youth Project 100 has demanded the governor veto the bill. The Anti-Defamation League has also spoken out against the common sense legislation by arguing that hate crime laws were only meant to protect people from being discriminated over their race, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity.
The “Blue Lives Matter” bill passed through the state congress and senate with overwhelming support.
