The party of violence: Demorats oppose bill to make water attacks on cops a felony

Imagine believing you have the right to throw something at someone you believe doesn’t “respect” you. Demorats are unhinged.

From Fox News: A Republican bill that would increase penalties for throwing water on cops, after a series of incidents in which members of New York’s Finest were doused by bucket-wielding mobs, is facing some initial Democratic opposition months before the bill could even be taken up.

Republicans in the state’s assembly were angered by viral videos of cops being drenched by groups of local residents — with NYPD officers apparently feeling unable to respond and walking away. Police have since made a number of arrests related to the cases, but the incidents have sparked national attention, with President Trump calling the incidents “a total disgrace” last month.

GOP lawmakers are now introducing a bill that would make throwing or spraying water “or any other substance” on a police officer a class E felony and punishable by up to four years in jail.

Assemblyman Mike LiPetri, who introduced the bill, told Fox News in an interview Thursday that there are signs the bill has some bipartisan support from some Democrats — particularly in the state Senate — but acknowledged early signs of other Democrats pushing back in the Assembly.

“I think anything in Albany is always a tough fight, it’s just a matter of persistence and working together to unite not divide both Houses in making sure this effort is passed,” he said.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, who will decide whether the bill gets brought up for a vote, indicated his opposition to the measure this week.

“But I don’t know if always proposing new penalties and laws [is the answer] … I think on the positive end we should continue to try and establish more of a community and police response,” he said, according to The New York Post. “I think that’s more beneficial instead of always saying ‘we are going to lock people up.’’

“I think people should respect the police department but I think Police should also respect communities,” he added.

That we have some rotten cops is true, they need to be thrown out, injustices don’t go far and the majority of the police officers are doing a good job and going beyond their duty to protect all citizens. Policemen respect people that are respectful, those that get out of line end up losing. If the bill doesn’t pass the left will claim victory -and it won’t be long for the police to be disarmed.

The DNC is unrecognizable from my growing up years. I used to imagine Democrats as possessing conscience as much as Republicans. But what these stories add up to for me is a party that has cast off its moorings, rejected any form of righteousness, and now exists only to gain power, and profit from it.

TD . . . You are right on target with those observations! They remind me of wild animals. From the casual observer, this reminds one of witnessing individuals who suffer from extremely low IQ.

All of the hate and violence comes from the left. Will the DemocRAT moron mayor of NYC do anything if someone pours acid all over a police officer, killing or injuring him for life?

Of course he will! He’ll give the acid thrower the key to the city.

The response should be a wood shampoo – helps the thugs understand their limitations.

So interfering with police business by “watering down” isn’t illegal? Assaulting by “watering down” a LEO isn’t illegal? Defacing law enforcement property by “watering down” a LEO isn’t illegal? Try “watering down” a member of Congress and see how fast they outlaw such behavior. How about “watering down” AOC, Pelosi, Ilhan, Tlaib Schumer, Nadler or other notable Congresspersons or a member of the Executive Branch or the Supreme Court and see how fast the law against “water assaults” get passed and enforced!

If this doesn’t pass what will the dumbos throw next?
The Rats are really a piece of work not wanting to protect the police.
Who are the first ones they call when they are in trouble?
How can they possibly not want to help the police?
I guess this really shows their true side.

I have had things thrown at and on me while working. Imagine doing your job just to be pissed on or have human shit thrown on you… First time I was pissed on I quit the job in disgust. The times after that I needed the job to provide for my family so had to endure the indignity of being assaulted with human waste.

Prehaps Sandy needs a “shit down” to learn some limitations.

Well of course this Demorat would oppose this legislation . . . it was in all instances his “Bros” doin’ the dousing. I am glad that the police have arrested individuals in these cases–why should anyone doing their job have to put up with people accosting them in this manner. It is just gross.
