    BREAKING: Virginia Democrats Push to Change the Charge For Assaulting Police Officers

    Senate Democrats in the state of Virginia are currently pushing to reduce the charge of an assault on a police officer from a felony to just a misdemeanor.

    "The proposal, one of 28 championed by the Virginia Senate Democratic Caucus to reform the state’s law enforcement systems, would get rid of the current law that considers an assault of a police officer a Class 6 felony and imposes a mandatory minimum term of confinement of six months," the Daily Wire reports.

    Check out what the Virginia code states:

    If any person commits an assault or an assault and battery against another knowing or having reason to know that such other person is a judge, a magistrate, a law-enforcement officer … a correctional officer … a volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel member who is employed by or is a volunteer of an emergency medical services agency or as a member of a bona fide volunteer fire department or volunteer emergency medical services agency … such person is guilty of a Class 6 felony, and, upon conviction, the sentence of such person shall include a mandatory minimum term of confinement of six months.

    Virginia Senate Democrats issued the following statement: “The deaths of [George] Floyd, [Ahmaud] Arbery and [Breonna] Taylor have awoken Americans and Virginians to long-standing problems in policing in America. After people are arrested, additional damage is done by a criminal justice system that has been streamlined to produce convictions and punishment instead of rehabilitation and justice.”

    Read the following reforms that the Virginia Democrats hope to make as reported by the Fort Hunt Herald:

    Prohibit No Knock Warrants

    Ban Sex With Individuals Arrested by Law Enforcement

    Prohibit Hiring of Officers Fired or Resigned During Use of Force Investigations

    Create a Decertification Procedure for Law Enforcement Officers*

    Ban chokeholds and strangleholds

    Require Attempts at De-escalation Prior to Use of Force

    Require Warnings Before Shots Fired

    Require Law Enforcement to Exhaust All Other Means Prior to Shooting

    Create Duty to Intervene by Fellow Law Enforcement Officers

    Prohibit Shooting at Moving Motor Vehicles

    Require Departments to Create a Use of Force Continuum

    Require Comprehensive Reporting by All Law Enforcement Agencies Including Use of Force Data

    Defelonize Assault on Law Enforcement Officer (Return to Misdemeanor Offense)

    Cancel HB599 Funding (Virginia supplemental funding for local police departments) After Local Police Have Disproportionate Use of Force Incidents in their Jurisdiction

    Create Local Authority for a Marcus Alert System – System to Report Acute Mental Health Crises

    Create Local Option for Citizen Review Board Empowered to Investigate, Fire and/or Discipline Officers

    Confirm Prosecutors’ Authority to Drop Charges*

    Enhance Courts’ Ability to Expunge Charges for Dismissed Charges, Substance Convictions and Pardoned Offenses*

    Prohibit Searches of Person or Vehicle Based on Odor of Marijuana Without Probable Cause for Other Offenses*

    Prohibit Stops for Equipment Violations Not Covered by State Vehicle Inspection

    Secondary Offense For Dangling Objects, Extinguished Tag Light, Tinted Windows or Loud Exhaust

    Jury Sentencing Only at Option of the Accused*

    Eliminate Commonwealth’s Right to Demand Jury Trial When Jury Trials Suspended for State of Emergency*

    Require Agencies to Determine Cost Savings for Introduced Criminal Justice Legislation

    Allow Earned Sentence Credit for Good Behavior During Prison*

    Create Discretion for Compassionate Release for Terminally Ill or Permanently Disabled Prisoners*

    Virginia Rental Assistance Fund for Families Economically Impacted by COVID

    Require and Reimburse Localities for Postage Prepaid Envelopes for Absentee Voting*

    Hey, look at the bright side - they still allow it to be considered a crime.
    In a few years it would probably fall under “freedom of expression”, and it will be considered community service.

    I suspect a mass exodus of LE from VA to follow, so they won't have to worry about cutting the budget.

    The Democrats aren't even bothering to pretend anymore. The pretense is over, they know who their constituency is, illegal immigrants and the criminally inclined.

    And they are going full bore advocacy mode for them to get their votes.

    Next year these retards will invent anew pre force procedure like Miranda.

    Something like,

    The Democratic Socialist warning,

    You have the right to remain a criminal and resist arrest,

    Nothing you do or say can be used against you in a court of law,

    You have right to consult with a personal injury attorney before resisting arrest, and have an attorney present before any force is used against you,

    If you cannot afford an attorney no problem, taxpayers will pay for one for you,

    If you decide not to resist now without an attorney present, you can decide at any time to stop cooperating and resist until your attorney is present.

    Knowing and understanding the rights I have just explained to you do you wish to have force used against you or be shot now?

    Please sign her to indicate your choice before we proceed.

    What then would be the law for an assault on Virginia Senate liberal democrat lawless makers?

    I can see a backlash on this called, "Assaults on Police Matter". Yes, just as much as assaults on Virginia Senate democrats.

    So, Virginia Senate democrats, call it which ever way you want it to be.

    Equal application under the law.

    Will the warning before shooting go like this?
    Police arrive on scene.
    Officer exits car and states, “If you make any dangerous or threatening moves, produce or imply the possession or use of a dangerous weapon or implement, or attempt a violent physical assault, you may/will have force, up to and including deadly force used against you. Now, let’s see this suspicious object you found in your yard.” or whatever call for service was answered.
    Perhaps a similar warning could be broadcast on TV or radio as a public service reminder for those that need constant reminder that actions have consequences?

    No doubt they are still fine tuning their legislation, sooner or later some Democrat defense lawyer will point out they need to include a "duty to resist police" clause.

    All this stems from UNREGENERATED people, from degenerative culture,
    and lawless by nature, not limited by any race.

    Certain signs will follow them.
    Degeneration of everything they are associated with.
    Lawlessness, crime and destruction .
    Perverted people
    Filthiness of mind and spirit.
    Haters of God and all that is godly.

    Not so fast! He could be the one in the picture wearing the KKK outfit. He said he was in the picture [one person in black face, the other in a KKK outfit], then later said he didn't wear black face in that picture that has his name all over it. By process of elimination...

    And they sure as hell didnt have photoshop back then either. The picture is for sure, real.
    Virginia better set the example in the next election. But i`m afraid the damage is already done.

    I believe Tucker Carlson refers to him as "Governor Klan Robes Blackface Northam", and he never fails to say it completely every time he references him.
