Virginia Senate Passes Law to Make Assaulting Police a Misdemeanor

I had an idea for a dystopian action/adventure movie along the lines of The Purge. Criminals take over the government and turn the rules upside down, so that sociopaths run free, and the law favors them against the police. But it turns out this is already being done. Not in Hollywood — in Virginia:

The Virginia Senate passed legislation Wednesday that would demote assaulting a police officer from a felony to a misdemeanor and would remove a mandatory jail sentence for the crime.

Encouraging criminals to physically attack police officers when the country has been engulfed in violent riots that specifically target the police for 3 straight months goes beyond irresponsible. It is societal vandalism. Morally speaking, not even the criminals and maniacs that have been seizing on lame pretexts to loot and destroy are any no lower than Virginia’s liberal rulers.

The summary of the bill, via WSLS 10:

Eliminates the mandatory minimum term of confinement for an assault and battery committed against a judge; magistrate; law-enforcement officer; correctional officer; person directly involved in the care, treatment, or supervision of inmates; firefighter; or volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel and provides that such crime can no longer be committed as a simple assault and must result in a bodily injury.

It’s nice to know they aren’t singling out police officers. Anyone who has to deal with criminals as part of their job has been placed at greater physical risk on behalf of the criminals the liberal establishment worships.

In related news, a state senate bill to ban police-free zones in Virginia was voted down in committee. The next CHAZ/CHOP anarchy zone may be in Old Dominion.

America was born of Virginians, prominently including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Progressives have nothing but contempt for the great country they entrusted to future generations.
