A Colorado Republican has introduce new legislation that should scare the hell out of the Black Lives Matter thugs.

U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., introduced a bill in Congress that would make it a federal hate crime to target a police officer.

Buck filed the measure Wednesday, he said in a phone interview from Washington, D.C. The bill, dubbed the Blue Lives Matter Act of 2016, would expand the federal hate crime statute to include law enforcement officers who are targeted for acts of violence because of their jobs, according to the Greely Tribune.

“I’ve been in law enforcement for 25 years before I started in this job,” the Windsor Republican said. “I’ve seen over and over both police officers on the street and federal agents, jail deputies and bureau of prison officials being threatened by very dangerous people. I have a passion for trying to protect those who protect us. That’s what this bill is about.”

Buck said if it were to become law, the act would provide federal prosecutors an extra measure of authority in cases such as the December 2014 ambush-style killing of two New York police officers, for example. It would work the same way as existing hate-crime laws do which allow federal prosecutors to bring additional charges in cases in which victims are targeted for violent crime because of their background.

The measure comes at a time when cases of attacks on police officers, such as the ambush murder of Deputy Darren Goforth have made shocking headlines across the country. It’s also a time when many officers feel under attack from those who blame all officers for the actions of a few.

Last year, 124 officers were killed in the line of duty, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Buck said he doesn’t know who might oppose the bill, but he noted even on Wednesday as he walked to the House floor to file it, several Republicans — Reps. Trey Gowdy, Pete Sessions, Jason Chaffetz, and John Ratcliffe — asked to be added as co-sponsors.

“I haven’t walked down the Democrat aisle yet,” Buck said. “We’ll see. I can’t imagine anyone would be opposed to protecting police officers.”

Well sir, unfortunately I can think of several. Barack Obama is their leader…

Black Lives Matter thugs and anti-cop liberals scumbags will be furious at the very thought of this legislation because it opposes their false agenda that police target young, black males. However, it is extremely necessary as violence against cops is completely out of control.
