Violence against police could soon be hate crime in Texas

http://abc13.com/politics/violence-agai ... e/1617491/

Gov. Abbott is pushing a measure to make violence against police a "Hate Crime".

Gov. Abbott made the following statement in response to the murder of the San Antonio police officer,
"Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to the victim's family and harshly condemn this horrific act of violence. We ask that all Texans join us in praying for the officer's loved ones as they deal with the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy. Attacks against law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in Texas and must be met with swift justice, which is why I look forward to signing my Police Protection Act into law - making targeted attacks against law enforcement a hate crime."
