    Default Protecting Missouri's Peace Officers (House Bill 57) Mo. state Rep. Wanda Brown

    Protecting Missouri's Peace Officers (House Bill 57)
    This week, the Missouri House took action to discourage crimes against law enforcement officers. House members approved legislation that would create enhanced penalties for individuals who assault officers of the law.

    HB 57 creates enhanced penalties for crimes against law enforcement officials and would increase by one degree the penalty for voluntary or involuntary manslaughter; first- or second-degree property damage; unlawful use of a weapon; rioting; or first-degree trespassing; when those crimes are committed against a law enforcement officer. As an example, voluntary manslaughter is a class B felony under current statute, but if HB 57 becomes law, voluntary manslaughter committed against a law enforcement officer would see the penalty increased to a class A felony.

    As the bill’s sponsor told her colleagues, “Hopefully these additional penalties will be a deterrent for anyone who may be considering engaging in a crime against these public servants. This law is intended to further protect those who have dedicated themselves to safeguarding our communities.”

    Crimes against law enforcement officers have increased in recent years and this bill will reinforce the legislature’s commitment to law enforcement.

    I'd be happier with initiating 'increased prosecution' of these slimeballs instead of changing the laws.

    Punishing criminals, instead of penalizing the rest of us.

    What a novel idea...

    Bear in mind this IS Missouri. They elected Jean Carnahan to the US Senate after her candidate husband was killed in a plane crash before the election. Her only qualification for the office was the fact she had been screwing the senatorial candidate. With that sort of qualifications Monica, or Marilyn Monroe was a better Presidential candidate than Hillary. What the heck.
