And why did they introduce this? Pandering to their career criminal constituents perhaps? The hood ratz and their families maybe? ANTIFA and BLM perchance? Despicable maggots.

you shouldn't place words in a quote that were never spoken.

 

You should also cite quoted words with a source.  Here, let me show you

 

 

"RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Senate has approved legislation that would eliminate a six-month mandatory minimum sentence for assaulting a police officer.

The bill was approved despite strenuous objections from Republicans who said it disrespects police at a time when they have come under attack during nationwide protests.

Democrats said the legislation does not minimize the crime of assaulting a police officer, but instead makes a distinction between serious assaults and minor assaults.

The bill keeps the charge as a felony, but gives a judge or jury discretion to reduce it to a misdemeanor if there is no bodily injury or if someone’s culpability is slight because of diminished capacity or a developmental disorder."  Bold added for emphasis.

Try quoting from the bill itself, NOT the AP. Then perhaps I will buy what you are saying. Quotes from the AP aren't worth the ink they were written with.

And once again, Democrats come running to the support, aid and comfort of a guy that ran around dressed as a Klu Klux.

 

Again.

 

But remember patriots, you are the racist.  Got that?

There are plenty of news articles that address VA Legislators reasoning for police reform.   Here are some headlines to help you in your inquiries.

Virginia Democrats: "Assaulting Police is OK"

 

I followed the link provided under the "quote"   "Assaulting Police is OK" and no where in the document is that quote listed.  In fact, I cannot find that quote anywhere except here in the PG.

 

I could understand if you stated "I think this means"   or "I believe what this means is..."  

 

But to post  " Virginia Democrats: "Assaulting Police is OK"  is disingenuous and dishonest.

"Va. police groups now largely on board with reforms

This is part of one of my favorite stories, told by a political science professor way, way back in the Dark Ages.  Why is the drinking age 21??  Because all laws allows wiggle room and resourceful 18 year olds will be able to get their hands on booze and drink.  (And so it was for me.)  Make the drinking age 18 and 15 year olds will be getting drunk.  Not as good.  Do you understand my meaning?

 

Now, if some penalties are reduced or lessened for giving a cop a raft of crap and people know it, the rafts of crap will escalate and more situations will get out of control.  Just like night follows day and day follows night.  We might also ask, why now?  If this law is so good and logical (which it isn't) why wasn't it passed years ago??  We all know the answer to that.  The same leftist pigs who wouldn't mind making a newborn "confortable" while deciding whether or not to kill him or her, are kissing up to what they think are their black constituents.

 

If this stupid law passes, more cops will be hurt and killed and more out of control situations will take place with all kinds of people being hurt and killed.  And "VA police groups now largely on board with reforms" is typical news speak.  And you, being a liberal suck it up.

 

Liberalism is Leprosy

You really needed it spelled out for you that the OP was offering his interpretation?

That's a Frank level gotcha attempt...

Same success rate too.
