Default Cop killers should die ASAP

I'm in. What say the PRC brethren?



Trump says cop killers should 'immediately' get death penalty




President Trump said criminals who kill police officers should get the death penalty, returning to his previous calls for harsher punishment.


Trump made the comments during a Wednesday speech for the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day service on Capitol Hill, an event that honors law enforcement officers who have died on the line of duty.


“The ambushes and attacks on our police must end, and they must end right now,” Trump said. “We believe that criminals who murder police officers should immediately, but with trial, get the death penalty.”


He added: “But quickly. The trial should go fast. It’s got to be fair, but it’s got to go fast.”

Yes they are. I wish their (cop killers) supporters could be given the same treatment.

No objection here. Killing a police officer is more than simply a murder, it's a crime against society.

One of my greatest frustrations is that assaults on officers are rarely prosecuted, relative to their frequency of occurrence, and sentenced trivially when they are. The mindset seems to be that it's "part of the job," which infuriates me. The murder of a police officer usually gets attention and harsh penalties, but not always.

Consistent with due process, I have no problem moving the process along more quickly for any murders.

I don't believe, however, that some animals are more equal than others.

There's some truth in that, sadly.

I couldn't believe my eyes watching Hillary vilifying law enforcement during the Presidential debates in 2016. Then I thought back over the eight years of Obama abusing the office of POTUS to rail on not just hard-working law-abiding Americans, but also railing on law enforcement. That piece of **** did more to cause division and hatred in this country than any President in history. On the plus side, he took Democrats down a dark anti-American path that paved the way for Trump to get elected in 2016. This issue alone is enough to make me never want to vote for a Democrat, until they collectively apologize ... and we know that will never happen.

As a fellow LEO, I believe in everyone's right to "due process", But if someone kills a police officer (and convicted of the charge), The killer needs to be publicly executed. No appeals, no sitting on death row living off taxpayer dollars. Give them the same treatment they gave the officer.

If there is 100% proof that the person killed a cop.
Then execute them the next day...

I was told and taught that a person crazy enough to kill a LEO looks at John Q Public as target practice..

This.

Neither the animals doing the killing nor the animals being killed are better or worse than any other killers or victims.

Justy for cop killers? Why not for everyone? See my previous post.

I don't consider that my job or my previous military career would make me any more of a special victim than anyone else.

They should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. That being said there should be no differentiation on murder penalties based on the victim’s job. To give extra penalties to crimes against government agents smacks of the US being an out of control police state, which we are...but can we pretend for just a little longer that we’re not. I’ll take door number one and try to hold on to what remnants remain of our Constitutional Republic with, we should all be equal under the law.

And would prefer hanging or electric chair. Firing squad is also fine for our western states.

Neither do I, But we have to do something to reverse the message sent by the previous administration that it's open season on the police. That's my biggest beef.

When a cop dies in the line of duty, some of these guys literally believe 55 million voting democrats erupt in joyous excitement... which is weird.

I agree with Trump assuming there is irrefutable and infallible evidence, e.g. DNA, body cam, etc.

Would you be OK with harsher sentences for police who use excessive force? Life sentence with no parole? After all, that’s also a crime against society in the sense of establishing a police state. . . ?

Take your issues up with rarely prosecuting those cases w/ the DA. I have no problem imposing harsher sentences on those cases but I DO have a problem with denying people due process.

You have a serious mental issue.

Now same OP makes a thread saying we should do away with due process.

And yet it’s the D’s that are against the constitution. . .

Cool.

Show me the thread on social media you say I started. As far as getting rid of due process, show me where it says that will occur.

Finally, if you CAN'T do either. Shut. The. ****. Up.
